Police look for missing Ashland man

Police are searching for a missing Ashland man who was scheduled to arrive in Portland on an Amtrak train on Nov. 21.

Garren Rudolf Beller, 38, never arrived in Portland. The Ashland native was last seen at Chicago's Union Station the day he was scheduled to depart on a Portland-bound train there.

"We do kind of feel it's suspicious and we're doing everything we can to try to locate him," said Lt. Corey Falls with the Ashland Police Department.

Beller's roommate, who had planned to pick up Beller in Portland, reported him missing on Nov. 25.

Police know of no one who has been in communication with Beller since his disappearance, Falls said Friday afternoon.

"I think he has people that are concerned about him and I think that's why they reported him missing," he said.

Beller was reportedly visiting family in Indiana and Illinois, police said.

Ashland Police Department detectives are working with law enforcement agencies in both states to try to locate Beller. He flew to Chicago in November, Falls said.

Police describe Beller, who lives in the 400 block of Liberty St., as 5-feet-6-inches tall, and 200 pounds. He was last known to have shoulder-length brown hair and a 1/4-carat diamond earring in his left ear, according to police.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Detective Rick Spence at the Ashland Police Department at 482-5211 ext. 2172.
