EARLIER (March 8, 2019) -- SHERIFF'S OFFICE SEEKS TIPS IN SEARCH FOR MISSING MILWAUKIE-AREA MAN DANIEL TONGE

Please reference CCSO Case # 19-005172

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help as it searches for a missing Milwaukie-area man.

On or about Monday, Feb. 25, 2019, 31-year-old Daniel Tonge reportedly left his residence at 3520 SE Vineyard Road in Milwaukie to go to work and never returned. He has not been seen or heard from since leaving the residence.

Mr. Tonge's roommate notified family members about his disappearance, and family members contacted the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

Mr. Tonge did not tell anyone he was traveling to any specific location -- though he reportedly enjoys fishing and the outdoors, especially at Mt. Hood by Fish Creek, Timothy Lake, Harriet Lake and Hagg Lake. His family has grown increasingly concerned for him, as this disappearance is reportedly out of character for him.


Information on Daniel Tonge:

  • White male
  • 31 years old
  • 5'11" tall
  • Approx. 230 lbs.
  • Pale skin
  • Brown eyes
  • Brown hair
  • Goatee
  • Vehicle: Possibly driving a brown 1999 Jeep Cherokee with Oregon license plate 871-FLQ

A photo of Daniel Tonge provided by his family is attached.
