A three-year missing persons case of a then 25 yr-old
Rico man has been solved with the findings of his remains in Elko County, Nevada. Robin
Andrew Putnam has been confirmed dead based on dental records.
Putnam was traveling on July 7th, 2012 on an Amtrak train from Emeryville, California to
Grand Junction, Colorado where his parents, Doug and Cindy of Rico, CO were waiting to
pick him up upon arrival on the morning of July 8th. When the train made a scheduled stop
in Salt Lake City, Utah at 3:00am, Putnam got off the train, leaving his laptop and other
belongings, but he never returned to the train and was never to be seen or heard from
