Sheriff's office seeks public's help to locate missing man


LEAVENWORTH — The Chelan County Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's help in locating a missing man who was last seen in North Central Washington.

Joshua Dean Griffin, 37, was reported missing by his family in March 2023 in Colorado. He was found three months later, in June, working temporary jobs in Wenatchee, Washington, but went missing again in August 2023.

In April 2024, a backpack containing Griffin's clothing, wallet, identification and cash was discovered along a hiking trail near Leavenworth. A search of the surrounding area did not yield any clues to his whereabouts, said Detective Paul Nelson of the Chelan County Sheriff's Office.

Griffin is described as 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 155 pounds. He was known to live a transient lifestyle, had a history of drug use, and often went for long walks, according to his family and friends.

Anyone with information about Griffin's location is urged to contact the Chelan County Sheriff's Office at 509-667-6843.
