UPDATE: 2/26/15 -The Corvallis Police Department issued a statement saying that Ferschweiler had been found unharmed at a hotel on the central coast.
Original story: Chad Ferschweiler, 34, was last seen on Feb. 16, 2015 in Corvallis, Oregon. He was suppose to open the Pita Pit in Corvallis on Monday but he did not show up and has not been seen since 9 a.m. on Feb. 16.
He was last seen wearing a Chive zip up hood, Pita Pit trucker hat and chinos. There is no formal search being done by the Corvallis Police Department.
His Facebook page shows a guy with a great sense of humor. Chad I hope you realize how many people care about you and you make contact with everyone and come back.
On Instagram the post reads: “His family says he has been depressed and struggling, and he failed to report to work Monday morning. No one has seen him since. He drives that Pontiac there, Oregon plates, and the tags are expired. Has a green Bill Murray sticker in the back window. If ANYONE has ANY information on him – if you’ve seen his car even, please contact Corvallis police IMMEDIATELY. There is no formal search as the police say that an adult is basically none of their concern when they go missing, but so many of us disagree. #FindChad #newberg #newport #yamhillcounty #linncounty”
Aaron Deen, the owner of the Salem Pita Pit, said that he originally owned the Corvallis Pita Pit and sold it to Ferschweiler in February 2011, according to the Albany Democrate Herald, but Ferschweiler didn’t meet the terms of the sales agreement, so Deen began legal proceedings to take back the business. As of February he was in control.
The Corvallis Pita Pit was closed Monday, and a sign on the door asked anyone who knows anything about the location of Chad to contact the Corvallis Police Department.
Chad, please leave a note here or call someone and let them know you are okay. Everyone is worried about you and we just want to offer our friendship.
