Deckers offers $10,000 reward to find missing man

Press Release:

 

GOLETA, Calif., Sept. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --Deckers Outdoor Corporation (NASDAQGS: DECK) is offering a $10,000 reward to the individual(s) with direct information that can help to locate friend, family member and long-time Cycle Oregon volunteer Mark Bosworth, missing from Riddle, Oregon since September 16. As the employer of Mr. Bosworth's wife, Julie, Deckers has offered to promote the search with this reward.

 

"Our employees are like family, and so in a very real way, Mark is part of our family," said Deckers CEO, President and Chairman of the Board Angel Martinez. "We want to help find him and support Julie in any way we can."

 

On Friday, September 16th at around 11 pm, Mark Bosworth went missing at the Cycle Oregon camp in Riddle, Oregon. He was last seen wearing black cycling shorts or pants, a grey Cycle Oregon sweatshirt and a yellow Cycle Oregon hat.

 

Around 100 friends, family and Cycle Oregon colleagues have assisted with the search effort in the Riddle area without result. It is possible that Mark could have journeyed further than the immediate area.

 

Friends from Cycle Oregon informed investigators that Mark had exhibited uncharacteristic behavior prior to his disappearance, such as exhaustion and sleeping more than usual. It was also reported that he had acted confused and that his speech was incoherent at times. Mark has been facing an ongoing battle with lymphoma, and it is possible that he is disoriented. He is reported to be without a wallet or any form of identification.

 

If anyone has contact with or has seen Mr. Bosworth, they are asked to please call the Douglas County Sheriff's Office Tip Line at (541) 957-2099 or Douglas County Communications at (541) 440-4471. Those outside of the Douglas County area should first alert their local authorities and then the tip line.
