Missing Vernon Cody Matthews
Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Blond hair, blue eyes. Matthews has a full, reddish-colored beard, and at the time of his disappearance his hair was long, past his shoulders, and often worn tied back. He goes by his middle name, Cody.
Details of Disappearance Matthews was last seen in the Fresh Pond area in Pollock Pines, California, near Highway 50, in the lower Sierra Nevada mountains, on June 6, 2014. The area is rugged and inhabited by large wild predators including bears and mountain lions. His family owned a cabin there.
He has never been heard from again. He's described as an avid outdoorsman and adventurer who knew the area very well, and his parents believe he could have survived for an extended time period in the wilderness, even with the minimal provisions he had.
Matthews has no history of leaving without warning. He was a senior anthropology major at the University of California at Berkeley at the time of his disappearance, and president of the university's Anthropology Undergraduate Association. He also belonged to the school's hip-hop club and rapped under the name MC Thor.
Foul play is not suspected in Matthews's case; authorities believe he had a mishap while hiking. An extensive search of the area turned up no sign of him and his case remains unsolved.
