Message from Chief Matt Murray…

Hi, I’m Matthew Murray, Yakima’s Chief of Police. I’ve been a police officer for nearly 30 years, and I’m proud to be leading our great police force here in Yakima. We believe that to effectively police in a community, there has to be trust—and trust is built in relationships. That’s why, since starting as Chief of Police, I’ve made it a priority to get out into the community and get to know people. If you see me or other officers in your neighborhood, we invite you to come say hello or just give us a wave. It’s our goal to build relationships and ultimately reduce crime. When police know their community and have earned the trust of its residents that builds stronger, safer communities. Communication is a powerful tool in bringing communities together and keeping them safe. This website is designed to help you find what you need. If you have questions, please let us know. We’re here to listen and connect.

– Chief Murray

It doesn't matter what the situation is. His family is worried & deserves to know if he's okay.

When I was trying to locate my homeless son, I called churches to see if any advocates are out and there and could locate him. I called and talked to someone at connections, they see a lot of people too. Triumph may have some suggestions with who goes out and helps out in the community, you could reach out to them. Your families in my prayers.

He will be found safe prayers going out

Praying he's found safe 🙏🙏

I will keep an eye out. I work at the Terrace heights WM and alot of transient people frequent the area even if they don't go into the store.

Check down by Walmart and around the park. He looks like the guy that came up to our car and said he was stranded and needed money for a bus ticket, that was on Saturday.

I was at the hospital ER last night around 10:30 there was a man that I assumed was homeless the security kept chasing him out. He approached my car asked if I could call for a ride. But I'm skidish of people like that so I just told him I didn't have a phone, he walked with a slight limp

I was in town yesterday and think I saw him pushing a cart over the bridge to Terrace Heights

I thought i seen him down on n 1 st by red lion 2 days ago walking

I may have seen him in Selah about 4:00 p.m. today walking with another man along the sidewalk going by Brian Harris used cars walking toward Yakima

Check with union gospel mission

Put some fliers out

check the Greenway, they are everywhere..

Sharing in the Seattle Area

Could it be him

Hes off the radar for a reason, prob dont wanna b found

There's been a guy hanging out off of 86th and Ahtanum today just sitting on the wall. I didn't get a good look but it might be worth checking out.

Ask Jackie or Jenna? His sisters might hear from him ?

🙏💙🙏

🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏❤

Sad the only photo of him is a mugshot

Hope he is found safe and well soon 🙏 shared to Gone Missing www.facebook.com/groups/4060210664014773/?ref=share

Yea why not post about your guys owen corruption first

I probably told him to gtfo my dumpster at one point or another. I'm sick of it. They leave shit all over the place for me to pop my tire on/step on like needles and broken glass. If they find him, I hope they take him in so there's one less homeless person on the streets to cause problems.
