OTHELLO — The Grant County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in finding an Othello-area man who has been missing since Aug. 4.

Audel Espinoza-Duenas, 43, was last seen near his home in the 7700 block of Road 12 SW, about five miles south of the Potholes Reservoir, wrote Kyle Foreman, GCSO public information officer. He was last seen about 7:40 p.m. that day.

“He does not have any history which would lead investigators to suspect he disappeared due to his own decision,” Foreman wrote.

Espinoza-Duenas is about six feet tall, weighs roughly 240 pounds and was last seen wearing blue work overalls.

“To ensure a secure investigation, there is information about this case we cannot share publicly and questions we cannot currently answer,” Foreman wrote.

Anyone with information on Espinoza-Duenas is asked to contact the GCSO, 509-762-1160, or email crimetips@grantcountywa.gov. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
