Help find David Clement - Search is scheduled for this Saturday, Dec. 1
A Camino man was to visit a friend, but never arrived. A search for the has turned up very nothing. "It looks like he went running that morning and vanished" said the Facebook search page. David has been missing since the morning of 11-6-2012.
David Clement, 30, an Army veteran is believed to have left his Camino home the morning of Nov. 6. A tentative search is scheduled for this Saturday, Dec. 1. The Search and Rescue Dogs came out in the rain but found no results. The Officer said to look in those areas again. "We established his regular route talking with the neighbors and ruled out the uncommon ones. We still have some larger areas to search this Saturday." http://www.facebook.com/events/308408712597156/
"So far the best guess at what happened is that David got up early on Tuesday around 5 am and went running. So we have to search the Camino Snow's Road area that is where he ran usually. He did run several miles at a time so this will be difficult."
“It looks like he went running that morning and vanished, never returning to his Camino home again since that date. He left his keys, wallet, cell phone and motorcycle at his home. David was going to visit a friend after doing errands on Nov. 6 and never did. His friends have been contacted and none of us have received any word from him. He has not been heard from since the 5th at 6:37 p.m., although it is assumed that he was at home that evening according to his computer.”
El Dorado County Sheriff’s Sgt. James Byers said an investigation was opened on Clement’s disappearance.
“We were notified on Nov. 13,” he said. “We filed a missing person report and assigned a detective.” He confirmed that all that was missing were jogging clothes, with his other items still at his home. “It’s not uncommon; he’s an avid jogger. He possibly left to go jogging,” Byers said.
A Search and Rescue crew used canines and searched an “extensive area around the residence, to accommodate a jogger, but were unable to find anything,” Byers said.
Although “adults can go voluntarily missing,” Byers said, “you generally get a feeling if they went off to Reno, Nev., for partying. It doesn’t feel like that in this case.” He noted that Clement’s friends had not heard from him, something unusual for the man.
The Facebook search page says, "David has been missing since the morning of 11-6-2012. Law enforcement has been notified and they have not had any results from any agencies in Eldorado or Sacramento County so far. I have been looking for him amongst his friends that I know also I posted on his wall that we are looking for him. David did not visit anyone as far as we can tell and his phone, wallet, keys and motorcycle were left at his house. Pam and I have exhausted our resources and will need help to look for him locally when we organize search parties and times."
"So, we are asking for people to help look for him and we are also asking for donations to cover expenses. We ask that people keep phone contact to a minimum, I am on the phone a lot trying to find David and too many phone calls will slow progress."
A Facebook page has been set up at www.facebook.com/HelpFindDavidClement to help with the search. Information on the search will be updated on the Facebook page. Anyone with information regarding Clement’s whereabouts is urged to contact detective Rich Horn at 530-642-4715 or David’s father, John, at John@Ecklesia.com

John Clement said it appears his 30-year-old son had been on the computer working on graphic designs in the early morning of Nov. 6. He had told his father the night before that he planned to run some errands in the morning and the two talked about getting together later in the day.
But family and friends have not heard from him since then.
John Clement, a former pastor at Camino Community Church, thinks his son went out for a run. He fears that he may have been injured, or possibly attacked by a mountain lion sighted in the area in recent weeks...
David Clement had been depressed for a time as he struggled to pay bills while developing the computer game, "but he had worked through that," his father said...
Friends say they don't think Clement was suicidal or that he would intentionally go off for an extended period without notifying family.
