A Riverton man vacationing in Las Vegas has disappeared after missing his flight home last week.
Anthony Micheal Enos, who is known as “Mikee,” traveled to San Francisco with a friend on March 26 and stopped in Las Vegas on March 29. He was to return to Riverton on Thursday.
After drifting into what his son’s mother, Stormy Friday, called the party scene in Las Vegas, Enos missed his return flight.
Friday said the friend with whom Enos had been traveling disapproved of Enos’ antics in Vegas and chose to return to Riverton on his own.
Stormy Friday said she received a call from Enos early Sunday morning, when he told her he was lost in the Las Vegas streets and “intoxicated.” He pleaded for somebody to “come and get him,” Friday said.
Friday said she began investigating Enos’ possible whereabouts on her own, calling jails and other institutions, and learned when she called Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas he was being treated there for injuries he suffered in a fight.
However, she has been unable to trace Enos since he left the hospital Sunday.
Enos apparently lost his phone and wallet in the “altercation,” which Friday described as a street attack or a possible mugging.
A missing person report was placed Monday with the Las Vegas Police Department. Investigators there told Friday said they may have a lead.
Enos’ brother, Myron Arthur, arrived in Las Vegas on Sunday evening to search for Enos.
“He’s still there waiting, and still walking, and looking everywhere,” said Friday, who added that Arthur also went to an American Indian gathering center in Las Vegas to try to gather a search party.
“I’m just hoping that we hear something soon,” Friday continued. “I just need him to be OK and come home.”
Friday said that although Enos struggles with a “cycle” of alcoholism, “he’s a really good person when he’s not drinking.”
“As far as I know, I don’t think there’s really anybody out to get him or hurt him or cause any harm to him,” said Friday.
Enos, 43, is described as being 6 feet, 4 inches tall with brown eyes and hair, no tattoos or piercings, weighing about 290 pounds. He is an Eastern Shoshone Tribal member.
In a public social media post, Friday urged anyone with information to contact the Las Vegas Police Department immediately.
