The Portland Police Bureau is asking for help finding a missing person who has not been located despite more than a week of efforts to find him.

On March 24, 2023, a Portland Police East Precinct officer responded to a missing person call in the Powellhurst-Gilbert Neighborhood. The caller reported that Steffin Burton, 29, went on a walk on March 23 at about 5:00p.m., and did not return. While it was not unusual for him to walk, he was gone longer than usual. Officers distributed an information flier internally but efforts to locate Steffin have not been successful. Steffin’s family have heard that Steffin might have spent time in Downtown Portland, but that has not been confirmed. Steffin does take medications that he did not bring with him.

Steffin is a white male, 29 years old, 5’8” tall, 185 lbs, with blue eyes, long thin light brown/dirty blonde hair, and a beard. He was last seen wearing a tan colored hooded sweatshirt with a logo on the front (the sweatshirt is seen in the photograph) and blue jeans with some tears in them. His shoes may be black or grey with blue accents. Steffin has no money or phone with him and is not familiar with public transit.

If anyone sees Steffin they’re asked to call 911. If anyone has information about him or where he might be, please e-mail missing@police.portlandoregon.gov and reference case number 23-76720.
