December 26, 2018 – The body of Matthew Fitch was found on December 25 on a beach near Coupeville by a women who found the body on the short below Madrona Way. .
Original Story: Matthew Fitch, 45, has been missing since October 29, 2018 from Central Whidbey Island in Washington. He was last seen by his wife, Consuelo, when he told her he was going to take a walk. He headed out the door and would have walked Arnold Road in the Rolling Hills Estates neighborhood of Oak Harbor . When Matthew didn’t return, Consuelo texted him, but he did not respond. Around 6 p.m., she drove around looking for him, but didn’t find him. She reported him missing to the police and they began canvassing the area with search dogs and drones. Matthew had a prepaid phone with him, but he didn’t answer and now the battery has likely died.
When there is no leads where someone is, many times it is assumed they walked away from their life. The Finding Matt Fitch page stated, “I don’t think he walked away. Loved his family too much and took nothing. No money, no car, no credit cards.”
Matthew was suffering with pneumonia and the family wonders if the prescribed medication he was taking had a bad effect on him.
He was wearing a grey t-shirt, Carhart beige pants.
If you see him, please call the police at 949-835-3013.
Since you’re here
I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share. I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
