Police are looking for a missing St. George man whose car was abandoned near an Ogden hiking trail.

No one has reported seeing Joshua Easley, 25, since late April. Earlier this year, he moved from his father's home in St. George to Ogden, said St. George Police Officer Derek Lewis.

The last time Easley's father heard from him was April 21, when Easley called asking for money for a trip to California, Lewis said. Two days later, Ogden police found Easley's abandoned vehicle.

"The family is extremely concerned about him," Lewis said.

Police have no evidence that makes them think Easley is in danger or that foul play was involved, Lewis said. However, the officer added that there is "also nothing disproving [foul play]" either.

Easley is of white and Latino ancestry, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 165 pounds with a medium build. He has hazel eyes, buzzed black hair with a receding hairline and may have a reddish goatee. He has a large tattoo on his right forearm and tattoos on both hands between his thumb and index finger, according to a missing person flier.

Anyone with information can call either the St. George police at 435-627-4300, or the North Ogden police at 801-629-8221.

His family has also created a Facebook page about his disappearance, Missing Joshua Easley.
