Ramon Brown, with Dementia, Formerly of Eldred, PA, Missing From Colorado Residence

Search suspended for elderly man missing from Dolores
Ramon Brown wandered away from home Sunday evening
By Patrick Armijo City Editor, Journal Staff Writer

the journal

The search for Ramon Brown, an elderly Dolores man suffering from dementia who walked away from the family home Sunday evening, has been suspended after an extensive four-day search that failed to come up with solid clues about his whereabouts.

Montezuma County Sheriff Steve Nowlin said his office will continue to review the case and checkout any clue that might indicate where Brown, 86, is located.

“We’ve been searching since Sunday evening. We’ve had help from the K-9 Search and Rescue Team out of Dolores and several K-9 teams from out of town that were here on training,” Nowlin said.

Numerous friends and family members assisted on the search. Tuesday, Nowlin sought assistance from fire agencies, and 39 firefighters from the Dolores, Cortez, Lewis-Arriola, Pleasant View, Mancos and Rico fire departments helped look for Brown.
Still, no clues were found.

Nowlin said a 1¾-mile radius has been examined around Brown’s home.

Brown is described as 5 feet, 2 inches tall and 120 pounds. He was last seen wearing a light blue shirt, gray slacks, black shoes and possibly a black baseball cap.

“We’re pretty much at wits’ end,” Nowlin said. “He is an at-risk elder with a medical condition. He is either down somewhere or left the area.”

Vicki Shaffer, incident commander with Montezuma County Search and Rescue, said, “Some search dogs showed some interest, but they weren’t strong responses, and when we followed them up, we were unable to find anything.”

Montezuma County Search and Rescue members began searching for Brown around 9:30 p.m. Sunday and continued with their hunt through Wednesday morning, Shaffer said.
She said the family searched for a while in Dolores on Sunday evening before alerting authorities.

Firefighters on Tuesday were able to assist the search with all-terrain vehicles and trucks, but they too failed to turn up a clue, Shaffer said.

Chuck Melvin with the K-9 Search & Rescue Team out of Dolores said two dogs from the team and more than 10 other K-9 units from around the country assisted.

K-9s from across the country were in Dolores for the Four Corners Search & Rescue Workshop and the teams volunteered to help with the search. Also, two instructors from Idaho and their two dogs and a instructor from Alaska, who was without a dog, assisted.

“It’s dry. We had dogs show some interest throughout, but nothing concrete,” Melvin said.
The dogs and handlers “are totally beat” and won’t be productive until they get some rest, he said.

“If we get new information, new leads or new clues, we’ll go out search, but as of now the search is suspended, said Shaffer. But these things aren’t really closed until people are located.”

Ridgway Resident Pleads Guilty to Producing Child Pornography

ERIE, Pa. - A resident of Ridgway, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty in federal court to charges of violating federal laws relating to the sexual exploitation of children, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

Jesse Porter, 42, pleaded guilty to two counts before United States District Judge Susan Paradise Baxter.

In connection with the guilty plea, the court was advised that Porter took sexually explicit photos and video of two minor victims. One victim was three years of age when Porter recorded himself sexually abusing her. The other victim was 15 when Porter took sexually explicit surreptitious video of her.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims. For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit www.justice.gov/psc.

Judge Baxter scheduled sentencing for November 6, 2019. The law provides for a total sentence of 60 years in prison, a fine of $500,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed is based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Pending sentencing, the court continued Porter on bond.

Assistant United States Attorney Christian A. Trabold is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Ridgway Police and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police conducted the investigation that led to the prosecution of Porter.

SOME EXPERIENCING LONG WAIT FOR HUNTING LICENSES BOUGHT ONLINE

Hunters asked to contact Game Commission if they’ve encountered problems.
Some hunters who bought their 2019-20 hunting licenses online have been slow to receive them, which in some cases might have impacted their submitting applications for antlerless deer licenses.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission encourages hunters experiencing such problems to contact the agency for help.

“We appreciate and care about every single one of our license buyers, and it’s unfortunate that some of those who bought licenses online have experienced problems this year,” said Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans. “We’ve worked with the same license vendor for several years with few issues, so the problems that emerged this year, which likely have impacted thousands of hunters, not only were unexpected, they are frustrating for the agency.

“We sincerely apologize to those hunters who have been affected and who share in our frustration,” Burhans said. “If you bought a hunting license online and did not receive it within the seven-to-10 business day window, please contact us. We can help to get you your license, and if the vendor’s error prevented you from submitting an antlerless deer license application, we can assist you in that process, as well.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission’s license division can be reached by phone at 717-787-2084 or by email to pgclicdiv@pa.gov.

As of today, antlerless deer licenses remain available in all but one Wildlife Management Unit.

While hunters are required to have purchased a general hunting license prior to submitting their applications for antlerless licenses, they do not need the general licenses in hand to submit. Applications for antlerless licenses can be found in the Hunting & Trapping Digest, as well as on the Game Commission’s website, www.pgc.pa.gov. As long as a hunter knows his or her Customer Identification (CID) Number, which does not change from year to year, they can complete an antlerless application and send it in.

The nine-digit CID number is printed on each hunting license.

In most cases, hunting licenses bought online cannot be printed at home because the licenses contain harvest tags hunters must use in the field when taking big game. When buying a license online, customers are prompted that they should receive their licenses within seven to 10 business days.

Unfortunately, the contracted vendor responsible for mailing licenses to those who purchased them online has run behind schedule in some cases. Meanwhile, a computer glitch that initially went unnoticed caused the vendor to temporarily misplace some of the online sales records.

Burhans said the Game Commission already has stepped in to fix problems for hundreds of license buyers.

“We fully recognize some of our license buyers have been inconvenienced, which is unfortunate, but we are here to straighten out any problems they might have had,” Burhans said.

Bridge Replacement to Start Soon on Route 321

Work to replace a metal arch pipe on Route 321 in Whetmore Township will get underway late this month, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT). The structure will be closed on July 29 and a lengthy detour will be in place. Replacing the bridge will eliminate it from the list of McKean County bridges in poor condition.

The 13-foot bridge spans Five Mile Run about three miles north of Kane. This structure dates from 1966 and carries an average of almost 900 vehicles each day.

The official 40-mile detour will direct drivers to use Route 6, Route 219, and Route 59. Motorists familiar with the area may choose alternate routes.

The metal arch pipe will be replaced with a new precast reinforced concrete box culvert, with an expected completion date of August 22. Should work progress allow, PennDOT will open the new bridge and lift the detour earlier.

Overall work on the project includes removal of the existing metal arch pipe, placement of the new box culvert, approach paving, guide rail updates, pavement markings, and miscellaneous items.

Francis J. Palo, Inc. of Clarion, PA is the contractor on this $542,000 project.

PennDOT reminds drivers to use caution in and around work zones, follow official detour signs, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

A 10-day, Statewide, Fall Predator Hunt at the Rolfe Beagle Club, 8/28 thru 9/7/19

COYOTE AND/OR CROW HUNT – REGISTER FOR YOUR CHOICE

 Wednesday, August 28 thru Saturday, September 7

Do you like to hunt coyotes? Do you like to hunt crows? Do you like to do both types of hunting? Here’s your chance to take your pick for ten days this fall!

The Rolfe Beagle Club announces its 2019 6th annual early fall predator hunt - You can register to only hunt coyotes, only hunt crows, or hunt both coyotes and crows. This combination of coyotes and crows is a continuation of the club’s efforts to expand opportunities available at the club grounds on Long Level Road between Wilcox and Ridgway in Elk County. “Many camps are full over that Labor Day weekend so we offer this ten day hunt for coyotes and/or crows so the people coming to camps can do something around that holiday that involves hunting,” said Jim Pennington, Jr., President of the Rolfe Beagle Club.

The hunt starts at 12:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 28, and runs thru Saturday, September 7, at noon. Coyotes will be weighed every day at 6:00 p.m. Crows will be counted in at the same time. Every coyote will receive a share of the prize money. The lone exception is that the largest coyote will also receive an extra 10%. The largest female will also receive an additional prize. “We follow this process of guaranteeing a prize for each coyote so every hunter that is successful in luring a coyote pup away from momma will receive some of the prize money. Sometimes it’s really difficult to separate the pups from a wise old dam coyote,” said Ray Erich, Vice-President of the Rolfe Beagle Club. “We also offer a ‘ghost coyote’ raffle just in case a coyote isn’t harvested, but we’ve never had to use that option for our fall hunt.”

The crow prize money will be based strictly on the number of crows harvested. Crows will also be counted in at 6:00 p.m. every day. The lone exception is that on Saturday, September 7, coyotes and crows will be registered in at noon. A lunch will be served and Prizes for the hunt will be awarded on Saturday, September 7, at 1:00 p.m.

Hunting is statewide. If you have any questions at all, please contact Mary Hosmer at wlhab@windstream.net or 814-512-2101 and leave a message. You can also contact Richie Schlimm at richieschlimm@yahoo.com or Mason Walters at masonwalters20@yahoo.com.

Registrations of $10 for the coyote hunt, $5 for the crow hunt, and $2 for the largest female coyote can be sent to Rolfe Beagle Club, 1016 Long Level Road, Johnsonburg, PA 15845, 814-512-2101, wlhab@windstream.net. Provide your name, address, phone number, and email.
