The man reported missing from Preston late Monday turned up safe and sound on Tiger Mountain just before 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Earlier Tuesday afternoon, police asked for residents’ help Tuesday to find a 21-year-old Preston man missing since Monday afternoon.
Police described the man as depressed and despondent, and said his family feared for his safety.
Before Tuesday evening, police said the last reported sighting of Ryan Dahlin occurred at about 5 p.m. at his home in the Upper Preston area.
Dahlin is described as 6 feet, 4 inches tall, about 160 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes. Police said he is believed to be wearing only black or dark blue swim trunks, and possibly sandals.
He might be attempting to make his way to Tiger Mountain, so hikers in the area should be especially alert.
If anyone sees Dahlin, call the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311 or 911.
