Updated July 13 2011 – Jake Anderson’s father has not been found despite the vast amounts of publicity.

Updated April 12 2011 – What happened to Jake Anderson’s father? There was speculation that Jake Anderson’s father was depressed over the death of his daughter, Chelsea Dawn Anderson. Keith faced enormous mental pressure, emotional distress and physical pain from his long term injury. He was suffering from illness and needed medication. He may have caved in under the extreme pressure and walked away.

One viewpoint suggests Keith Anderson would never be irresponsible to the remaining members of his family. He could have gotten injured, which explained the blood stain on the keys of the vehicle. It is hard to hold on to hope when Keith was known to have left without bringing his medication and he could not have survived without his medicines.

A conspiracy theory suggested that Jake Anderson’s father could be alive, living in a secret location, under an assumed identity. He could have planned his own disappearance to start a new page in his chapter in life. Or, Keith Anderson may have suffered from a bout of amnesia and forgotten his family members and home. He could be around somewhere, homeless, or living in a shelter.

What happened to Jake’s Dad (of the TV show Deadliest Catch)? What happened to Jake Anderson’s father? Investigators are not revealing any information yet.

Keith Anderson, 63, is a retired high school counselor from Anacortes, Washington. Jake Anderson is appealing for help to locate his father.

Keith Anderson was last seen in Sultan. His truck was found abandoned and stuck in the mud.

Jake said his father would not simply disappear and walk out on his family. Jake is desperately looking for closure in this case. Jake has no leads and hasn’t an inkling what to do.

Jake’s uncle Chris may have been the last person in the family to see his dad alive. Keith Anderson, 63, was a popular retired counselor from Anacortes, Washington. Keith vanished from the face of the earth on Jan 6, 2010.

Chris Anderson said his brother visited him on the morning of Jan 6. They shared coffee and small talk. Keith left to run errands, help move some furniture for one of his daughters and then met a friend. Keith wanted to get Oxycontin from his friend, because of his pain. Keith was on Oxycontin originally prescribed after surgery but he became addicted to it.

Keith Anderson was supposed to go to Arlington, Washington, to get some Oxycontin pills and return home but he was last seen in Sultan, 120 miles away from home. The man who gave Keith the pills told the authorities that the deal was done and he dropped Keith off at the car park of a local supermart.

Police said Keith’s bank and credit cards had no activity shown on them since his disappearance on Jan 6. On Jan 22, Keith’s 1999 Ford Ranger was found abandoned on a remote logging road in Darrington. The truck was locked and the keys were found inside the truck. The area was searched but nothing was found.

The truck was locked and the keys were inside the truck. There was a little amount of blood on the keys. Investigators said someone could have cut a finger and blood stained the keys. Tests on the blood were inconclusive and they couldn’t confirm if the blood belonged to Keith.

Jake said his salary goes towards the household expenses and four sisters. He’s sad that he has very little cash to offer a reward to generate leads to try find his father. The family believes foul play may have been involved. However, the authorities said there was no hard evidence foul play was involved.

Some people believed that Keith walked away because he was under pressure, grieving for a dead daughter, in pain, in addiction, in depression and suffering from health problems.

A fund has been set up and donors can contribute at any US bank. The fund’s name is “Keith Anderson”. Just tell the bank staff that you wish to donate to the Keith Anderson fund.

Keith Anderson has high blood pressure and depression. He left home without much cash, clothes or personal items. His cell phone was found in the mud outside his home. His family and relatives believed he met with some foul play. Investigators could not find any evidence of said foul play. Although Keith went to buy some pills, there was no evidence of foul play in the deal. Keith’s relatives said he wouldn’t have taken the pills and got dazed outside home. He would normally return home before consuming any medication.

The Anderson family had lost one of theirs when Chelsea Dawn Anderson died from pneumonia. Chelsea was one of the 5 daughters of Keith Anderson. Chelsea had rheumatoid arthritis and when she contacted pneumonia, it became fatal. Chelsea passed away on Feb 13, 2009.

The official search for Keith Anderson ended on Jan 28 2010. The family and friends are on their own from now.
