Search For Missing Diabetic Man Suspended Indefinitely


The search for a 20 year old insulin dependent man who's been missing since Friday has been suspended indefinitely.

A helicopter was brought in Monday to search the area near 30 Road in Fruitvale where John Atchley was last seen, but there were no signs of the missing man.

The ground team called off its search Monday afternoon. Atchley is running out of insulin and his father is pleading to Grand Junction residents to be on the lookout for his son.

Atchley is 5'7" with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing brand new white tennis shoes, blue jeans and white t–shirt.
