Portland police are asking for the public's help in finding an endangered missing person

The Portland Police Bureau is asking the public for information on the whereabouts of George F. Cline Jr., also known as Eric Cline, a 53-year-old man who is considered an endangered missing person. Cline was last seen in the emergency room at Oregon Health & Science University Hospital on May 6 and has not been heard from since.

Officials express concern for Cline's safety as he suffers from mental health issues and is not acting as his own legal guardian. His family and law enforcement fear for his health and are urging anyone with information to come forward. Cline is a white male, approximately 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs approximately 160 to 175 pounds. He has brown hair and eyes and is identified by his long beard, a prominent scar on his left buttock/hip, and several tattoos, including a prominent one on the inside of his left forearm.

Details about Cline's last known appearance are still sparse and police are pursuing all leads. A photo of Cline was distributed in the hopes that community members would recognize him and provide valuable information. The Portland Police Bureau said in a statement: “We are reaching out to the community in the hope that someone spots him and provides us with information that could lead to his safe return.”

Anyone with potential leads or information regarding Cline's current whereabouts is asked to contact the Portland Police Bureau's Missing Persons Unit. Authorities underscore the urgency of this case given Cline's vulnerability due to his mental health and the time that has passed since his last visit. Family members, who have chosen to maintain their privacy during this difficult time, have reportedly worked closely with investigators to jointly determine the whereabouts of their loved ones.

Options are available for those who would like to provide information but would prefer to remain anonymous. There are services and hotlines that allow individuals to submit tips without revealing their identity. Links to such resources have been provided on the Portland Police Bureau website, where concerned citizens can also find updates on the case and additional contact information.
