Benjamin R. Munoz

The King County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in locating a man who has been missing since April.

Detectives believe the disappearance of Benjamin R. Munoz, 32, may be the result of foul play, according to sheriff's spokesman Sgt. John Urquhart.

Munoz lived with his father in the 11000 block of First Avenue Southwest, in the Top Hat neighborhood of unincorporated King County.

On April 29, Munoz's father heard him come home about 2 a.m. and go to bed. He saw Munoz briefly the next morning before leaving for the day. No one has seen or heard from Munoz since, Urquhart said.

Munoz is 5-feet-5, 200 pounds, with black hair and numerous tattoos on his arms and across his shoulders. He did not have a car.

Anyone with information on Munoz's whereabouts is asked to call the King County Sheriff's Office at 206-296-3311 or 911. Tipsters can also call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Rewards of up to $1,000 are being offered through CrimeStoppers.
