Deadliest Catch - Has Jake Anderson's Father Been Found ?

So I'm sitting here watching Deadliest Catch reruns and I started wondering if Jake Anderson's father was ever found. I set out on a mission to see what I could find.

This is what I found.

Jake's father went missing on January 6, 2010.

His name is Keith Anderson, 63 years old, he was a retired school teacher/high school counselor for 23 years at Anacortes, WA. High School where he lives.  He evidently had gotten addicted to Oxycontin when he was given it after surgery on his rotator cuff, and then again about six months later for broken ribs. (I don't know why they don't outlaw this drug, it seems to do more harm than good.) Anyway he went to meet a drug dealer to purchase some Oxy in Sultan or Arlington (I've seen both places named) and was never seen again. He also reportedly had high blood pressure which he left the medicine for at home, and he was suffering from depression. The depression certainly is understandable after losing his daughter Chelsea Dawn in 2009. My guess is the Oxy was adding to the depression problem not helping it.
