Authorities are still searching for KBNG (THE BLAST)/RIDGWAY, CO morning man RICHARD "RICK" STEELE, 48, who went missing, and was last seen parking his white FORD RANGER pickup a few miles east of MONTROSE, around 7:30p THURSDAY, according to MONTROSE COUNTY Undersheriff KEVIN WALTERS.
"We haven’t found anything," WALTERS said over the holiday weekend.
GJSENTINAL.COM reports, the station’s GM, JAY AUSTIN, said he became worried when STEELE didn’t show up for his Friday morning shift. 'When he missed work, that’s extremely uncharacteristic of him,' AUSTIN said, explaining by late FRIDAY morning STEELE’s co-workers were looking for him, searching areas where he went to walk his dogs. One of those spots was SOUTH CANAL, where co-worker JIM KERSHNER found STEELE’s truck."
