APD Calls on Public to Help Find Missing Airman, Clinton Reeves

Clinton Reeves

Authorities are asking for help to find a missing airman. They’re calling on the public to aid their investigation.

Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson has turned over the investigation of a missing airman to the Anchorage Police Department’s Homicide Unit. Clinton Reeves is assigned to the 673d Logistics Readiness Squadron. He was last seen leaving his duty location on April 19 and last heard from on April 22. Lieutenant David Parker is the Public Information Officer for the Anchorage Police Department. He says the APD is taking over because they found Reeve’s car abandoned.

“It was a rented vehicle, so it wasn’t registered in his name. It was found on a parking complaint on the 23rd at 309 McCarey Street. But the officer did not realize that it was in any way shape or form attached to a missing person. Ultimately on the 27th, when we did receive the information about Clinton Reeves being the missing person, they returned and seized the vehicle as evidence.”

The unlocked vehicle contained Reeves’ personal effects, paperwork, food and beverages. The ignition was intact and there was no indication that it had been stolen. Anyone with information on the the 2012 red Dodge Avenger or Reeves should contact APD.

They shed light on injustice and they comfort us in troubled times. She got into public broadcasting because it seems to fulfill the intention of the 4th Estate and to most effectively apply the freedom of the press granted to us through the Constitution. She feels that public radio has a special way of moving people emotionally through sound, taking them to remote places, introducing them to people they would not otherwise meet and compelling them to think about issues they might ordinarily overlook.
