The Bend Police Department is asking for the public’s help locating a 60-year-old former Bend firefighter who was last seen early Wednesday morning. John Love was dropped off by a cab driver at his home on St. Cloud Ct. between 2:30 and 3:30 a.m., according to Bend police. He was wearing a green jacket, blue jeans and tennis shoes. By Monday morning, a day-old post on Bend Fire Department’s Facebook page seeking tips had been shared nearly 5,000 times. Bend Police spokesman Lt. Jason Maniscalco said police do not suspect a crime at this time. “Obviously this is unusual — that a person just goes missing like this,” Mansicalco said. Love was hired by the Bend Fire Department in 1996 as a firefighter, according to the department. He was promoted to fire engineer in 2002 and retired in 2013, but was rehired as volunteer coordinator in 2014. He retired again in 2016.
