Family asks for help in search for missing Lander man

UPDATE: He has been found OK. Read more here:

(Lander, Wyo.) – The mother of a missing Lander man is asking for the community’s help in locating her son. Toby Lauderdale, 25, has not been heard from since in early Monday evening, his mother Michelle Tallman said.

Tallman said Toby closed up at his job at Meridian Trust on Monday evening, spent about $10 at Mr. D’s with his debit card and hasn’t been heard from since. His missing presence was first noted when he did not show up to open the bank on Tuesday morning.

Toby is described as 5′ 6″ tall, about 165 lbs. with brown eyes. Tallman said there’s a chance that Toby might have taken the Jeep in the below picture to go mudding somewhere. Toby lives in Lander on Market Street.

Tallman also said her son’s cell phone is pinging in Fremont County, but it has not been in use. The transaction at Mr. D’s was reportedly the last time his debit card was used.

Fremont County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Bill Braddock confirmed that his agency is working on the case. “We’re following all possible leads,” he said, declining to release much else about the search.

If anyone has any information as to Toby’s possible whereabouts, contact the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office at 332-5611.
