Grant County Sheriff’s Office is exhausting their resources searching for Dan Toya, 64, missing since Friday.

A side-scanning sonar boat from Boise, Idaho is en route to Potholes Reservoir to search the water near where Toya’s unoccupied pickup truck was found. They estimate a Wednesday launch of the boat. After that, search tactics are limited.

“Searchers continued their efforts throughout the weekend,” said Sheriff Tom Jones in a Tuesday news release. “Their efforts have been extraordinary, and with the deployment of a sonar boat, we will have exhausted all resources in the search for Dan.”

Grant County Sheriff’s Office believes Toya was taking a walk with his 10-month-old dog, Molly, near Samson’s Beach. Pictured above is Molly’s reflective red-orange collar that may have been connected to a chain leash.

Toya is described as an Asian male, 5’9″, weighing 180 lbs. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored jacket, blue jeans and tennis shoes.

Anyone with possible information should call the Grant County Sheriff’s Office at (509) 762-1160.
