###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

The Portland Police Bureau's Missing Persons Unit is asking for the public's help locating 30-year-old Devin Gordon Singh, missing since Sunday July 27, 2014.

Singh is described as a male Indian, 6'1" tall, 170 pounds, brown hair with long dreads, hazel eyes, facial hair, a tattoo of "DTD" on the left side of his neck and an Indian symbol on his right interior forearm.

Singh was last seen wearing a blue polo-style shirt, dark blue work pants (similar to Dickies), and bright orange 5-toe shoes.

Singh's family discovered him gone on Sunday morning after seeing him much earlier, at approximately 1:30 a.m.

Singh has had some recent health and depression issues that have given his family concern for his welfare.

Singh is a skilled and avid hiker and there are several trailheads near his home on Northwest Germantown Road.

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue Team is checking several trails and areas near Singh's residence.

Anyone seeing Singh is asked to immediately call 9-1-1. Anyone with non-emergency information is asked to contact Detective Heidi Helwig at (503) 823-0797 or heidi.helwig@portlandoregon.gov.
