The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in locating a 28-year-old Pueblo West man.
Thomas R. Cook has been missing for more than six months. Cook made the decision to leave six months ago, but has had no contact with his family and has not been seen since.
Family members told sheriff’s deputies Cook had an argument at his father’s house on Aug. 17, 2013.
When he left, he said he planned to go to Kansas where he had lived before moving to Pueblo West.
He left the home without his personal belongings or his wallet. Both his 26th birthday and Christmas have passed without him reaching out to anyone.
PCSO detectives have been working with Kansas authorities for the past several months but there has been no sign of Cook in either state and he hasn’t been contacted by law enforcement anywhere else in the country.
Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office Investigations Sergeant Shelley Bryant believes someone in Pueblo can help solve the case.
“We want assistance, someone to point us in the right direction while we will continue to do everything we can to find him” says Bryant.
“His parents and friends are in need of answers and we want to provide those answers.”
Cook is a biracial man with brown hair and brown eyes, 5-feet-8 and 180 pounds.
He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.
If anyone has information on Thomas Cook, or saw him on or after Aug. 17, they are asked to contact the lead detective in the case, Detective Williams at 719-583-4856 or Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office Communications at 719-583-6250.
