Details of Disappearance
Robert Gates left his home on December 3, telling his wife he was going for a drive to Georgetown. Gates and his wife often visited the area and ate at the Georgetown Hotel. Gates’ black 2008 Pontiac Solstice with dealer plates was found on Volcanoville Road near Buckeye Point on Jan. 23, but he was not. The owner of the property near which the car was found is not a full-time resident on the Divide, and was visiting the property when the vehicle was found. A small amount of blood was found inside. Search and rescue crews searched a couple of days but have been unable to find the missing Gates.
