Q: What happened to the older man on his motorcycle who went missing and was last seen getting gas on 16th Street?
A: Alan Keith Porter, 58, was found dead in Placer County about a month after he was reported missing when he failed to return to his Sacramento home from a motorcycle ride.
According to stories in The Sacramento Bee, he had last been seen April 29, 2014, riding his blue 2004 Yamaha motorcycle.
Porter’s body and his motorcycle were found May 22 by hikers down a 300-foot embankment off Mosquito Ridge Road, about 16 miles from Foresthill. The winding road features many switchbacks, and Porter was found in a heavily wooded area.
