One Year Later, Salem Teen Still Missing

Posted on October 16, 2022

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the last known sighting of Ezra Mayhugh, an 18-year-old from the Salem area. Mayhugh was last seen after being dropped off by a friend in downtown Salem on October 15, 2021. Ezra Mayhugh was 17 at the time he was first reported missing by his family. Ezra reportedly left work after telling a friend that he had been catfished online and had to leave.

Mayhugh is approximately 5’11” tall, 130lbs, and has blonde hair with brown eyes. Investigative leads suggest it is possible he may have traveled to either Washington or California.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office has worked closely with the family in the past year and has nearly exhausted all investigative leads. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office and Ezra’s family have not given up hope that he can be located and is asking anyone who may have information about Ezra’s whereabouts to contact Sergeant Sphoon at 503-798-8319.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office has been assisted by:

  • Federal Bureau of Investigation
  • Nation Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC)
  • Western States Information Network (WSIN)
  • Seattle Police Department
  • Safety Compass
  • Silverton Police Department
  • Multiple California law enforcement agencies
  • Salem Police Department
  • And many more not listed

Ezra’s family respectfully requests no contact from the media at this time.
