Clues sought into whereabouts of missing man

Alex Hyatt-Ryan

GLENWOOD SPRINGS – Family members of a local man who was reported missing over the weekend are turning to the larger community for help.

Sara Hyatt said her brother, Alex Hyatt-Ryan, 22, of Glenwood Springs, has not been seen since about 3 p.m. last Saturday when he was supposed to be headed to work at Hogback Pizza in New Castle. However, she got a call from the pizza place a couple of hours later saying he hadn’t shown up

“He’s been scheduled for a couple more shifts since then and still hasn’t shown up,” Sara Hyatt said. “It’s so unlike him. His toothbrush and glasses were still at the house; it’s really strange.”

She and her sister have also contacted friends and old college buddies of Alex’s, but so far have no leads, she said.

Hyatt-Ryan may be driving a “hunter green” 1992 Jeep Grand Cherokee with oxidized paint on the hood, clear windows and a spare tire in the back leaning against the window. The license plate number is Colorado 146-TAV.

Glenwood Springs Police Chief Terry Wilson said they have no leads that would suggest anything suspicious.

“It sounds like he’s normally very responsible and shows up for work, and stays in touch with his sisters,” Wilson said Tuesday. “That in itself is a little disconcerting. But we don’t have any information to look in one direction or another at this point.”

Hyatt-Ryan also does not have a cell phone, he said.

“We have put out an attempt to locate alert,” Wilson said.

Hyatt-Ryan is described as about 6 feet tall and roughly 250 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He has lived in the valley since 1996 and attended Basalt High School, graduating in 2007 with the Evans Scholarship to CU Boulder.  

Anyone with information as to the possible whereabouts of Hyatt-Ryan is asked to call the Glenwood Springs Police Department at (970) 384-6500, or Sara Hyatt at 948-9348.
