10:55 a.m. update: Timothy Duran was located and returned home.
South Lake Tahoe resident Timothy Duran, 24, has been reported as missing to the South Lake Tahoe Police Department. Duran has no history of being a danger to anyone, but is prescribed medications for mental health purposes and can become very confused without them. Duran’s mother is his caretaker, and reports that he has not likely been taking his medication for a few days. Duran has a history of occasionally wandering away for a few days at a time, but usually remains within the Tahoe area. In the past, Duran has been known to wander in the woods and along roadways. He will occasionally hitchhike or frequent local drinking establishments.
Duran was last seen on April 22 around 6:30 p.m. His last known communication with anyone was on Wednesday round 4 p.m. There is no current clothing description for Duran, but he is described as a white male 5-foot 10-inches and 135 pounds, with brown collar length wavy hair and a short beard/mustache. Duran is listed as “at risk” because of his need for medication and his resulting confusion without it. The SLTPD is asking for the public to call 911 if they recognize Duran in the area.
