Man reported missing after truck found abandoned
Doña Ana County — Doña Ana County Sheriff’s investigators say a man whose last known addresses were in La Mesa and Roswell, N.M. has gone missing and are hopeful the public might be able to help locate him.
Sanders Thomas Welch, 48, was last seen on April 1, in La Mesa and could have possibly been in the Roswell area on April 7.
In May, Doña Ana County Sheriff’s deputies spotted Welch’s truck abandoned near Castillo Road and N.M. 192 near the river levee, but Welch was unable to be located.
A family member, who said Welch has sometimes been out of contact with family members before, reported Welch missing on June 17. Investigators suspect Welch’s disappearance may not have been voluntary.
Welch is described as five foot, three inches tall with blue eyes and sandy, light brown hair. He is approximately 135 pounds. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Office, (575) 525-1911 or the Mesilla Valley Regional Dispatch Authority, (575) 526-0795.
