Authorities are asking the public to check their properties for any signs he may have been there.

Police in Grand Forks are asking the public to assist in locating a missing 26-year-old man.

Anthony Valdez was last seen leaving the Level 10 bar in the downtown area of Grand Forks in the early morning hours of February 6th. He was wearing a green winter coat with a fur lined hood and a black baseball cap.

Lieutenant Jeremy Moe with the Grand Forks Police Department says nearby residents are encouraged to check their property for any signs of movement through those areas.

"We're asking people to pay some extra attention to their property, whether it's vehicles, outbuildings, RVs, sheds, garages, all that kinds of stuff - but just to see if there's been any activity or if anyone's accessed them. We're trying to see if we can track any movements; there is a belief that Anthony Valdez did go in a north, northwestern direction from downtown."

Authorities are conducting a search of the Greenway today.

Lieutenant Moe says anyone with any information can also call Grand Forks Police at 701-787-8000, and that tips can be submitted anonymously on the police department’s website, Facebook page or via the Tip411 app.
