The Casper Police Department continues to seek the public’s help in locating a 36-year-old Casper man who has been missing for nearly two months.
Ryan Schroeder was last heard from on June 26 after reportedly being dropped off a convenience store in the Denver area by a friend.
While Schroeder’s sisters, Allyson Schroeder and Cassidy Dieguez, said Sunday they believe their brother actually returned to Wyoming after the second of two trips to Colorado, investigators don’t believe he returned to Wyoming after June 26.
His family fears that Schroeder is in danger, his sisters said, and they are gravely worried about his safety and ask the public for help.
“If this was someone else’s loved one, they’d want that person to come forward with any information,” Allyson Schroeder said.
Schroeder is more than just a face on a poster, Dieguez added, noting that he’s a father and grandfather and that his children and family love and miss him greatly.
Schroeder’s whereabouts are being actively investigated by multiple law agencies both in Wyoming and in Colorado, according to Casper Police Department Public Information Officer Rebekah Ladd, who urges anyone with information to come forward.
Schroeder’s case has also been taken up by private investigator Amanda Waldron of “We Help the Missing,” a nonprofit organization founded in Utah with volunteers all over the country.
Schroeder is described as 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing 190 to 200 pounds. He has brown thinning hair, a short beard and blue eyes. He also has multiple tattoos on his left arm, including an American flag, a pistol and math equations as well as a green skull and numbers on his left hand and fingers and a cross and angel wings on his right arm.
Schroeder typically wears a T-shirt, khaki shorts, tennis shoes, and a baseball cap.
