TRENTON — Trenton Police Chief Tommy Wright is asking the community for assistance in locating Tanner Ward, 19, of Trenton. Ward was last seen by family members on Wednesday, June 7, during the evening hours. He has not been heard from or seen since. He was last seen on foot leaving a family member’s house in Trenton. Ward is described as a white male, 19 years of age, 5 feet, 10 inches, 150-170 pounds, brown hair and brown eyes, with a slim, athletic build. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, dark blue skinny jeans, black Vans shoes, and a blue Kansas City hat. The Trenton Police Department has continued posting photographs and information about Ward’s disappearance in hopes that he returns home safely. “Today a family weeps for their child, son, and brother that has been missing for 13 days,” the Trenton Police Department posted Tuesday on its Facebook page. “A baby girl longs for her father’s comfort and protection. A father and soldier has came home early from his deployment while serving our great nation so that he can help find his son. Do you know where Tanner is? Please help us bring Tanner Ward home where he belongs. His family misses him dearly!” Family members and friends gathered at the C.F. Russell Stadium in Trenton Saturday evening to pray for Ward’s safe return and to plead with anyone who has information to come forward. The Trenton Police Department has followed up on close to 100 leads, conducted numerous interviews and reviewed hours of video tapes from various places, the Trenton Republican-Times reported Monday. Wright asks that anyone with information concerning the whereabouts or disappearance of Ward, to contact the Trenton Police Department at 660-359-5557, or by emailing him at email@example.com
