Mr. Naranjo-Rios has wandered off before and in all directions. So, he could be anywhere.

He speaks Spanish and believes that he needs to go to work. Naranjo-Rios is 5-feet tall, weighs 147 pounds, and is bald. He was last seen wearing black pants and brown work boots. He may be wearing a hat.

If you see Rafael Naranjo-Rios, please contact Pasco Police at 509-628-0333.

Remember, he's been found in all directions from his home. Last December, a bus driver found Rafael near Court Street and Road 64.

Please keep your eyes open for Rafael. We'd like to see him get back home safely.

I have family that has disappeared for a few hours and the helpless feeling is gut-wrenching. Let's work together as a community and help Police find Rafael.
