Kootenai County deputies search for missing man

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help finding 86-year-old Lyle O. Anderson from Hayden who is missing. Deputies say his family has not seen or heard from since last Monday, June 4, 2018.

Deputies say although no family members have seen or spoken to Anderson since then, information indicates the possibility that he went missing on Thursday, June 7th.  

Deputies say it is likely that Anderson, who has some medical concerns, went for a drive into the back country, with his dog, as this is one of his favorite activities.  The dog is a Jack Russell terrier.  Anderson likes to frequent the area of the North Fork of the Coeur'd Alene River, including the Horse Haven area, however there is no information which would indicate he might be in this area over any others.  

Anderson is believed to be driving his dark grey 2014 Jeep Patriot SUV, bearing Idaho license plate K563230.

Anderson is described as 5’9” tall, 210 pounds with grey hair and blue eyes.  There is no information available as to what he is wearing.

Anyone with information regarding Anderson or who may have seen him in the last week, is asked to call the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office at 208-446-1300 and reference case # 18-24174.
