Man missing for a week
Eric C. Myers, 44, of Grand Junction, was reported missing Tuesday night by his family, who say Myers failed to show up for work this week, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.
“He may have gone for a drive in the north desert area, but otherwise there are no leads as to where he may have gone,” the Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.
Myers is described as 6 feet, 170 pounds with blue eyes and salt-and-pepper gray hair.
He may be driving a white 2001 Ford F-150 pickup with Colorado license plate 179MIR.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 244-3500.
Records sealed after arrests
Raul Avita-Arellano, 59, Jose Gonzalez-Zuniga, 43, and Jesus Hernandez-Corona, 27, were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of distribution of a controlled substance and conspiracy, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.
Arrest affidavits were sealed Wednesday at the request of the Mesa County District Attorney’s Office.
Each man is being held on $250,000 bond at the Mesa County Jail.
Gonzalez-Zuniga and Hernandez-Corona are prohibited from posting bond as suspected illegal immigrants, the Sheriff’s Department said.
According to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department:
Jeffery Dean Elder, 38, 1560 Main St., was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance and driving with a suspended license after a traffic stop in the 300 block of Grand Avenue.
Christopher Jade Nelson, 39, 2930 Rhonda Lee Road, was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of aggravated driving after a license was revoked, DUI and careless driving.
A woman reported Tuesday she received a suspicious call from a man with a foreign accent who told her he was an attorney and would be taking her and her family to court because of a $700 debt. The woman said the debt claim was false. Deputies told the woman this was a scam by people outside the U.S., and next time anyone calls claiming the same thing, let him or her know law enforcement was notified.
Someone reported a Sony PlayStation 3 was stolen from a home in the 3100 block of Brownie Circle on Tuesday.
