OGDEN — Friends and family of an Ogden man last seen early Saturday morning are concerned, but hopeful, they will be able to find him “safe and sound.”
Robert Morfin, 62, was last seen when he left his home in the area of 28th Street and Madison Avenue at about 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Morfin’s son, Adam said. Robert Morfin left on foot without notice and without his wallet or cellphone. He also left without his diabetes medication, Adam Morfin added.
“We’re concerned because he is diabetic, he doesn’t have his medication and he wasn’t in his normal state of mind,” he said.
Family members say Robert Morfin enjoys going on long walks and knows the area well. He was last seen wearing a dark blue shirt and blue sweatpants with orange stripes on the side. He is described as 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
On Sunday, friends and family gathered outside an Ogden church to coordinate search efforts for him.
“It’s been difficult, it’s been very heartwrenching from the time that we’ve learned that he is missing primarily because it is out of character for him,” said family friend AnnaJane Arroyo.
The family filed a missing person’s report with Ogden police, and posted flyers in the area where Morfin was last seen as part of their search effort Sunday.
“You hold out hope, but it’s already been 24 hours, he was out in the rain last night. You know, I’m just, I’m really worried about him,” Adam Morfin said on Sunday.
Anyone who may have seen Robert Morfin is encouraged to call Ogden police at 801-395-8221.
