saying it is likely his body has been there since he disappeared? didn't they search the immediate area at all?

For god's sake... they're saying that the body looks like it's been there for a long time. That's a statement that tastefully says "the body didn't look fresh", or as tastefully as possible. Try thinking just a little before you attack the police's statements or actions. This isn't freakin' rocket science.

Contra Costa Times says it is the body of the missing man, and he was found hanging from a tree. Suicide. Very sad.

DC, which cop department do you work for? Cops can be as incompetent as any other profession...and much more dangerous.

There are a lot of police haters contribute to the Patch, apparently. I bet they would call them, if they needed help.

I'm not surprised it took the "po lease" this long to find a dead body, they're to busy handing out speeding and jaywalking tickets. The tri-valley law are a bunch of wannabe losers and amateurs.

Apparantley you didnt read that it was a unincorporated part of Livermore. LPD probably dont search out there. If people wouldnt break the law by speeding and jaywalking then they wouldnt get tickets. We should be thankful for our fellow officers.

Never need 'em. Cops protect other cops rather than the public.
John Harrington August 09, 2012 at 03:58 AM
Agree with Chris.

no your the loser and someday you will figure that out. How long that takes is questionable!!! your not worth anymore thought.

The original article on here states exactly this.. "Todd Cook, 24, went missing in the late-night hours of June 23, or early-morning hours of June 24, from his home on Doolan Road in rural unincorporated Livermore." Doesn't seem that they looked too hard for this guy considering he was found months later on the same street he lived on. Sad.

Some of you people are just armchair idiots. Just because they didn't find him does not mean they didn't look. People go missing every day and that doesn't mean the family should assume they are dead somewhere. You are not the police and you don't know all of the behind the scenes details. I'd bet there is more than any of us will know. Let the family grieve and quit trying to act like you could have done a better job. I'm sure the guy was gone whether they would have found him sooner or not.

Have you ever been on Doolan RD???? It is in the hills and has gulleys running next to it in some places. Look for buzzards would be the only way you could find somebody after they had been gone awhile, and you might find a cow instead. So quite harrasing the police, sheriffs dept. 10 hours of searching by muliple searchers, couldn't find him if he had walked a mile away, and you had no idea what direction.

I think a lot of people forget that the police purposely with hold information to the public durring many active investigations. Just because the information isn't in the article doesn't mean it didn't happen. Doolan Rd is a particularly rural part of Livermore, frankly im not surprised they didn't find him for two months. Kaylee anthony's body was in the woods behind her house and they didn't find her for 6 months .

I see alot being said about the police, search and rescue; random bickering. The bottom line is... a 24 yr old either felt bad enough to hang himself or he could have been a victim of foul play. My heart and prayers go out to the family as this is a huge loss. A little compassion or empathy would be nice.

Sad ending to to a young mans life. As for Tri Valley law inforcement, and so called cop haters, they unfortunatly have contributed to their own P R over the last 25 years,as many citizens have experienced abuse of power buy some law inforcement officers who seem to treat everybody poorly due to a smaller percentage of truly abusive suspects they arrest during the performance of the job they elected to take on. If the job gets to you that bad, then maybe you need to look for another line of work.. People don't just dislike law inforcement for the hell of it, so their biggest supporters have had few to no contact with their local blue knights .
