PRICE, Utah (ABC4) – Price Police are continuing to search for a man missing since Friday that prompted a Silver Alert to be activated on Tuesday.

Police say Guadalupe (Lupe) Molinar, 70, was last seen at Indian Hills Trailer Park on October 8. On Wednesday, Price Police issued another call for the community’s help to locate Lupe.

They say Carbon County Search and Rescue was able to conduct a large search of the wash near Lupe’s home after it was reported that Lupe may have had plans to build himself a shelter near the river. While searching the rough, muddy, and dense terrain on foot and with a drone, police say Lupe was not located.

“Although we cannot be 100% certain, there was no evidence located that would show Lupe was in this area,” Price Police say. It is unknown where Molinar may be traveling but he is believed to be on foot. He walks with difficulty and shuffles when he does. He is usually seen walking on Carbon Avenue to Market Express, Millers, Walmart, or Woodside Apartments in Price.

Police say there is a chance someone picked up Lupe and is unaware he has been reported missing. Since the Silver Alert was issued around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, authorities have not received any tips or information that has been validated.

If you live in Carbon County, you are asked to check your property, including outlying buildings or sheds, in case Lupe found somewhere to hide from the elements. If you are out in the outlying wooded areas, desert, and along the wash, police ask that you keep an eye out for Lupe. If you’re looking in these remote areas and places near the wash, Price Police ask that you be sure you’re not alone, well equipped for the terrain, and make sure someone else knows where you’ll be at.

“We are still hopeful Lupe is safe and with a friend or picked up by motorist and we need your help sharing this information so hopefully it reaches someone who may be with Lupe or seen him since Friday,” police add.

If you have seen Lupe or have any information about his whereabouts, you are asked to contact Price Police at 435-637-0890.
