The body of a 66-year-old man who went missing after being separated from his son during a cycling trip in August was located last month in a field in Ridgefield.
Clark County sheriff’s deputies found the remains of Robert “Bobby” Robinson, which were sent to the Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office for identification, Vancouver Police Department spokesman Kim Kapp said in an email.
Vancouver police issued an alert Aug. 5 asking the public for help in locating Robinson. Police said he was last seen by his son around 7 p.m. riding his bicycle on the Interstate 5 Bridge to Vancouver.
Robinson got separated from his son at some point and could not be located, police said. The missing person alert said Robinson suffered from a medical condition that affected his memory and thinking.
Kapp said police are unsure how Robinson ended up in Ridgefield, but it appears he continued north after he got separated from his son near the bridge.
