MISSING: 21-year-old Soheile Nazari

BEAVER COUNTY — The Beaver County Sheriff’s Office is requesting the community’s help Monday in locating a missing 21-year-old man last seen in the Milford area.

Soheile Nazari, also known as James, checked himself into the Milford Valley Memorial Hospital on Thrusday complaining of hypothermia symptoms, Beaver County Sheriff’s Deputy Jennifer Harris said. After he was released from the hospital on Friday morning, local LDS church members checked him into the Oak Tree Inn, located at 777 W. Center Street in Milford.

The man was first discovered to be missing after his mother contacted the Sheriff’s Office requesting that someone conduct a welfare check on her son, Harris said. When deputy’s responded to the Inn, it was discovered that he was no longer there and had left all his belongings, including his coat, behind.

The last sighting of Nazari was at the hotel between 6-8 p.m., Harris said. This was also the last recorded time Nazari used his credit card.

Nazari is believed to be wearing a T-shirt, pants and shoes of unknown color, Harris said. He may also be wearing a beanie or cap. It is unknown as to what direction Nazari may be traveling, Harris said, and he is believed to have no acquaintances in the area.

If located, the public is urged not to approach Nazari, as he may be suffering from a possible mental disorder. Instead, they should contact the Beaver County Sheriff’s Office at 435-438-2862 and reference case number 150100007.

    An obviously mentally-ill man is discharged from a hospital and disappears. This is very similar to the Nathaniel Vamvas case, April 2014, also in Utah.

    We really do need to take care of people who cannot take care of themselves.
