MCCOOK, Neb. (AP) — Investigators from Amtrak and several other police departments continue searching for the retired California firefighter who disappeared from a train somewhere between eastern Colorado and western Nebraska.

Charlie Dowd was last seen Sept. 13 on a California-to-Chicago Amtrak train.

Reports from passengers who saw the 69-year-old Dowd that night have investigators thinking he may have fallen off the train somewhere between Fort Morgan, Colo., and McCook, Neb.

The Yuma County, Colo., sheriff’s office has conducted an air and ground search along those 160 miles of track, but Dowd wasn’t found.

Police departments all along the train’s route are helping to search for Dowd, who is from San Mateo, Calif.
