RENO, Nev. (AP) — Family members are seeking answers about a Reno man who vanished a year ago while driving home to Reno after visiting relatives in Ohio.
Patrick Carnes' car was found abandoned April 14, 2011, at an Interstate 80 off-ramp about 20 miles east of Winnemucca.
Humboldt County sheriff's investigators believe the 86-year-old World War II veteran is dead and foul play is involved. His 8-year-old Akita-Labrador mix dog named Lucky also has never been found.
Carnes' son, Jim, told the Reno Gazette-Journal that family members are hoping that publicity over the anniversary of Carnes' disappearance will lead to new clues.
In a twist, the car of 62-year-old Judy Casida of Reno was found abandoned at the same I-80 Pumpernickel Valley off-ramp in March 2006. She remains missing.
