Patrick F. Carnes

patrick_f_carnes_09Patrick F. Carnes, a World War II Veteran, has been missing since April 13, 2011.  Patrick F. Carnes was travelling with his dog, a 100 pound mixed breed named Lucky on the last leg of a 2200 mile road trip.  Patrick and his dog Lucky always took trips together, so this trip was nothing out of the ordinary. Patrick was 86 years old (in 2011) when his dark green Subaru was found parked in the brush along the side of the road at Exit 205 in Pumpernickel Valley, Nevada.

Watch the 8 minute 25 second video below for a very detailed story about the disappearance of Patrick F. Carnes.
