The search continues for a Moses Lake man who went missing on Friday afternoon.

64-year-old Dan Toya told his wife around 2:30pm Friday that he was taking their dog to the veterinarian, then taking the golden labrador retriever to Samson’s Beach, south of Moses Lake.

Later Friday, Toya’s wife became concerned when her husband had not returned home. His truck was found unoccupied near Samson’s Beach, but neither he or the dog could be found.

Grant County Sheriff’s deputies and several other agencies have been searching for Toya in an area surrounded by the ice-covered Potholes Reservoir.

Toya is described as Asian, standing 5’9″ and weighing 180 lbs. He has gray hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a dark colored jacket, blue jeans and tennis shoes.

Anyone with information about Toya’s whereabouts is asked to call the Grant County Sheriff’s office at 509-762-1160 or 911.
