The Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) is searching for Lynden resident, Robert Cross.
Cross was reported missing at around 10 p.m. on March 6 at Froberg Road and H Street Road in Lynden, said WCSO chief criminal deputy Doug Chadwick. Cross, age 64, is an African American male with short black hair, brown eyes and is approximately 6-feet tall, Chadwick said. He drives a 2003 GMC Yukon SUV that’s maroon with the license plate number ‘BAS7258,’ he said.
On March 12, Chadwick said cell phone records obtained by the WCSO indicated that Cross was in Bellingham on March 11, near Railroad Avenue and East Champion Street. WCSO deputies subsequently checked the area and were unable to locate the vehicle or Cross, he said.
“Deputies, as well and family and friends, have checked places that he is known to frequent and [the WCSO has notified] area law enforcement agencies,” Chadwick said. “[Because] we have not located his vehicle, no area-specific search is underway.”
