RIVERDALE, Weber County (KSL) — A man and his 2-year-old daughter who went missing after a minor vehicle crash Tuesday may have been spotted in Las Vegas, police said.
Josh Stinger and his daughter, Gabby, were reportedly seen on the Las Vegas Strip, according to Riverdale Police Lt. Casey Warren. He said Riverdale police were working with Las Vegas authorities to locate the pair, according to KSL.com.
Stinger and Gabby were involved in the crash around 9:30 a.m., Warren said Tuesday. Stinger spoke with officers and then called his family to tell them he was headed home but never returned home.
Family members then contacted police for help. Maribel Stinger, Josh’s wife, told KSL that her husband has a slight disability that can cause him to become frightened and want to flee.
Gabby has cancer and needs to be home in her bed, not out in the cold, Maribel Stinger said.
“With the conditions that we have, we feel like they could be in danger,” Warren added Tuesday night. “That’s why we’re reaching out to the public.”
Josh and Gabby Stinger were last seen in a 2004 blue Dodge Durango with Utah license plate number 904MYR. The right side of the vehicle has some damage from the morning crash and the right headlight is broken, police said.
Anyone who has seen Josh and Gabby Stinger, or their 2004 Durango, is asked to contact Weber County’s emergency dispatch center at 801-629-8221.
