Longmont Police Continue Search for Missing 54-Year-Old Longmont Man
A 54-year-old Longmont man is still missing after leaving home for a bike ride more than two weeks ago.
At 8 p.m. on September 10, a man named Saza set off for a bike ride around Main Street and Mountain View Avenue. It was estimated he would return around 10 p.m. that evening, according to earlier reports.
âIts route typically takes it along the Longmont Greenways to Sandstone Ranch, then west to Hover Street,â wrote Robin Erickson, Longmont Public Safety spokesperson. âHe didn’t go home.
Longmont’s Detective Sgt. Matt Cage said there had been no update to the investigation. He said the Longmont Police Department and Saza’s family conducted several searches for him.
âWe searched Kanemoto Park all the way to Main Street and down to Sandstone Ranch on the bike path,â he said. âWe searched with dogs and search people. We have hit this area very hard.
After his disappearance, Saza was spotted by a surveillance camera while cycling towards the south side of Longmont, Cage said.
Saza is described as being 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 170 pounds with brown hair and eyes. Saza usually rides with a Camel blue backpack and a white helmet. His bike is a black Trek.
Erickson wrote that Saza wears hearing aids, but didn’t have them with him when he left for his bike ride.
Cage said police do not believe there is any criminal activity related to Saza’s disappearance.
âWe are actively researching and following up on any leads that we get,â he said. “If anyone sees it and knows anything, please contact us.”
Anyone who has seen Saza is asked to contact the Longmont Emergency Communications Center at 303-651-8501 and reference LPD # 21-7454. Or call Longmont Detective Phil Piotrowski at 303-774-4478.
