Brian Jennings, 56, was last seen Dec. 22 by his sister as he was on his way to deliver presents to family members in Port Townsend.
“This is totally out of character for him to disappear like this,” said Heather Eims of Gardiner, Jennings' sister.
“I'm worried about him because he's had three heart attacks, and it's been very cold, so I'm hoping that he didn't have any more heart problems.”
Eims said Jennings is 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs about 140 pounds, wears glasses and has no teeth.
He has very red skin resulting from high blood pressure and usually wears a red jacket, she said.
He drives a red Subaru Legacy wagon, Washington license plate 300ULN, with a Jack-in-the-Box icon on the radio antenna, she said.
Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Capt. Mike Stringer said his department has canvassed local roads with no results.
“We have driven around the area to see if he might have gone off the road but haven't found anything,” he said, adding, “The investigation is continuing.”
Eims said that Jennings is an unemployed handyman who trades services for cash. He also has housesit for several friends.
Jennings' home is a trailer near Discovery Road, where Eims visited him Dec. 22 and gave him the gifts he was to distribute to their brother, who also lives in Port Townsend.
He left his house that day but never arrived to deliver the gifts, she said.
Anyone seeing Jennings should contact Eims at 360-670-1305 or call the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office at 360-385-3831.
