Fremont County authorities are asking for help from the public in locating a missing Arapahoe resident who has not been seen in nearly a week.

Jose Dejesus Pereda is described as a 70-year-old man standing 5'7" tall and weighing 130 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray/black flannel long-sleeve shirt and black pants.

In a news release, the Fremont County Sheriff's Office says Pereda was last seen in Riverton at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5. His last known destination was the Sandraw landfill south of Riverton -- he never arrived.

Pereda was operating a white 2002 single-cab Toyota Tundra, possibly with a load of garbage in the bed. The license plate number for that vehicle is 10-18870.

Anyone with information on Pereda's whereabouts is asked to contact the Wind River Police Department at 307-332-3112 or the Fremont County Sheriff's Office at 307-332-5611.
