This is an image from a police video related to the Patrick Carnes disappearance. They say Carnes was following this truck and they want to find the driver by identifying the logo on the back of the trailer.
I now think the blurrier images are the more accurate ones rather than the high contrast one.

RENO, NV - It's been more than a month since an 86 year old Renol man disappeared while driving I-80 through northern Nevada.
Patrick Carnes fate and whereabouts remain a mystery, but investigators are now focusing on video of his last sighting and are confronted with what could be a bizarre connection with another case.
Carnes was returning from a trip to visit family in Ohio. His last confirmed sighting was a few miles east of Wells about 9 o'clock on the evening of April 13 where he was pulled over by a Nevada Highway Patrolman.
His car was found the next morning about 20 miles east of Winnemucca at a little used exit on Interstate 80.
The area between has been thoroughly searched with no sign of Carnes or his dog Lucky, but investigators are now focusing on that NHP stop and video taken from the troopers dash camera.
The video begins with the trooper having stopped another truck. As he talks with that driver another big rig passes by, followed by Carnes' green Subaru in the outside lane.
By law, Carnes should have pulled into the other lane, so the trooper gives chase and pulls him over a few miles up the road.
After a brief conversation, the trooper lets him go with a warning after Carnes admits he's tired.
"I'll never drive at night again," he says and they both laugh, but during the conversation he also indicates he may have been following the driver of that other truck.
"Pat makes some comment that leads us to believe that he may know where this trucker is headed or he may actually know who this trucker is," says Humboldt County Undersheriff Curtis Kull.
Investigators believe that Carnes, a former trucker himself, may have made a connection with the driver of the big rig, perhaps at a stop further east in Wendover and that driver may hold the key to finding Carnes.
In the video, the truck is speeding by and a still image taken from it is blurry, but you can make out some sort of logo on the back of its trailer. Investigators are hoping someone can identify the truck.
"You can see an "NG" at the top upper left hand corner" says Kull. "and that's what we need help with."
I don't see what you're seeing. I think that it's probably three letters that identify the company.
I also think there are two or three company initials there but the outline of the letters is strange even for a logo. They're also different colors or different shades. I was going with GXG or CXG. Still ,why would the last letter be so much bigger? Maybe if it's G76 for the bicentennial.
Maybe it's fitted for the outline - text warped into a shape.
