Fearing the Worst; Hoping for the Best for Steven DenBeste (UPDATED)

On October 14th, Steven DenBeste posted that he anticipated there might be an interruption in his posting due to an approaching Typhoon. No one has heard from him since. I've called his landline, others have attempted to contact friends, and Wonderduck and Ubu both contacted vendors he's blogged about using since they are assumed to have his mailing address. 

9 days on, the power in that part of Oregon has been restored (and his landline is ringing)., many of us are beginning to fear the worst.

In addition to the storm Steven has been in failing health of late, so his absence is of particular concern.

Steven is an atheist, so he won't appreciate prayers...but they can't hurt....

In the Hopes That it Will Amuse Steven: Pious Bunnygirl with kitten by Juji Amo

UPDATE: Earlier this evening I contacted the police with my limited information, which consisted of a phone number and the city (gleaned through the first six digits of said phone number. A few minutes ago I was contacted by the Beaverton police. There were three addresses that it could have been, the second was Steven's family. The officer had offered to escort them to Steven's house, but they said they would handle things in the family and declined further assistance. That is all I know at this time, and as I'm not family it's all I am likely to discover. It does not sound good.

1 Thanks Brickmuppet.  Getting worried here, but I don't have any contact details apart from his email address.

2 The text messaging service on my network appears to have coughed up a lung just as we were ending our conversation.  In reply to your last, I've been trying to say "Okay, thank you." for the past 15 minutes.

3 I tried contacting what we believe is his apartment complex this morning, but on a Sunday nobody was answering the phone. I'll try again tomorrow.

4 I called the police earlier tonight. They said they'd get back to me.  Please confirm  Beaverton.
Please don't post his apartment complex, he's gotten death threats in the past.
