Missing Person – Adult

On October 6th, 2017, Sparks Police were contacted in regards to a missing person.  The family of Bret VanHorn, had not heard from him since October 3rd, and were concerned.  The family stated that they had not heard from him for several days and they could not get ahold of him; which was out of the ordinary.  Once the report was taken, officers checked several locations for VanHorn over the past few days, which were unsuccessful. 


The family's concern has now increased, as 3 more days have gone by without any contact being made by VanHorn. They do not believe that he is in any danger, they just want to know that he is ok.  Furthermore, VanHorn is not believed to be a danger to the public.


VanHorn's family asks that if anyone knows where Bret is or comes into contact with him, to please have him call them to tell them that he is ok or if they can help him for any reason.  The public can also contact the Sparks Police at 353-2231.


VanHorn's description is as follows: *(a photo is attached)*


58 year old White male, 6' 0", 220 pounds, Brown hair, Hazel eyes.  Last seen wearing a thick Blue jacket, jeans, a baseball hat, and loafer-type shoes.
