Jay Sloop Update
Body May Be That of Missing Adventist Doctor
Dr. Jay Sloop served as health director for Upper Columbia Conference and disappeared in the Ukraine in 2013. Dr. Jay Sloop visiting the park where he disappeared, just days before he turned up missing.
SPOKANE, Wash., December 10, 2015 - While DNA testing is not yet complete, it appears that Ukrainian authorities may have found the body of Dr. Jay Sloop, the Seventh-day Adventist physician from Yakima, Wash. who went missing while on a health training visit to the country in May, 2013.
The body was recovered from a building next to the park where Jay went missing Tuesday, May 14, 2013.
"Jay was a light and an encouragement to so many in Yakima, the Northwest and around the world. I invite you to join me in praying for Jay's entire family in this difficult time."
Clues that helped police preliminarily identify the body include the clothes Jay was wearing the day of his disappearance and his wallet containing some identification. Police are currently conducting a forensic investigation to confirm the identification and attempt to determine more details surrounding Jay's death.
Prior to his disappearance, Jay had been serving on a three-week mission trip with a team of health professionals helping the Adventist church in Kiev set up a lifestyle center. As was his custom, Jay went for an early-morning walk. His fellow team members became concerned when he did not arrive at the appointed time for breakfast.
An extensive search at the time, which involved hundreds of people, including U.S. Embassy personnel, blood hounds from Ukraine and Germany and a city-wide media blitz turned up no evidence leading to Jay's whereabouts.
Jay served as a physician in Yakima, Wash. until he retired. In retirement he stayed actively involved in health outreach, including serving as the health ministries director for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in eastern Washington, northern Idaho and parts of northeastern Oregon.

Dr. Jay Sloop
YAKIMA, Wash. - Dr. Jay Sloop of Yakima has disappeared in Kiev, Ukraine, where he was on a medical mission, officials with the Seventh-day Adventist Church said Tuesday.
The 77-year-old retired obstetrician was last seen about 6:45 a.m. local time Tuesday after he left a church compound in Kiev for a morning walk, said Jay Wintermeyer, communications director for regional church headquarters in Spokane.
"This is uncharacteristic and unusual," an emotional-sounding Wintermeyer said 17 hours after Sloop was last seen.
Local police have been contacted and searched his room for possible clues.
According to Wintermeyer, Sloop has been in the Ukrainian capital for three weeks, helping set up a lifestyle center with a team of fellow health professionals.
Wintermeyer said Sloop had been in Kiev for about three weeks and was scheduled to return to the United States at the end of the week.
Sloop is a retired OB/GYN who had a private practice in Yakima from 1969 to 2005, when he was named health director for the Seventh-day Adventist Upper Columbia Conference in Spokane.
Wintermeyer said Sloop continues to live in Yakima, commuting to Spokane as necessary.
