Missoula police are searching for the whereabouts of a missing man, Terrance Ryder (also spelled Terrence Rider), 26, who hasn’t been seen since April 1.

Police Department Public Information Officer Travis Welsh provided a description of the missing man, who is legally blind.

“Ryder is a white male, 5 feet eleven inches tall, 215 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes,” Welsh said. “He apparently left his apartment on the 1100 block of Shakespeare Street and was last seen by his roommate who said he grabbed a backpack and left, and they haven’t seen him since. He was apparently wearing blue jeans, and a green jacket, carrying a blue backpack. He is also walking with a cane due to his blindness.”

Welsh said police are interested in finding Ryder to ensure that he is safe and healthy.

“We could use the public’s help in finding Mr. Ryder, and letting us know where he might be,” Welsh said. ” Calling 9-1-1 would be the quickest way to contact us and get an officer to the scene. Obviously, we would like to make sure that he is alright, particularly because he is legally blind, and I don’t know to what capacity he is able to see. Right now, there are people who are very concerned with his welfare, so we would like to locate him, just to make sure he’s alright.”
