Wales was last seen on Monday, April 19th, at 6:30am in the Mission Valley area. The blonde, slender Wales is 24 years old, 6 feet tall, and weighs 140 pounds. When he was last seen, he was wearing a black shirt, blue jeans, and a brown belt. He drives a black, two-door Saturn Ion with a broken right-side mirror, license plate number FR33BSD.
Wales’ friends and family have started a website to coordinate the search, Find Erick Wales. The site provides contact information to use if you have any information as to his whereabouts and a downloadable flyer you can print out to display in your neighborhood.
Before disbanding in 2006, Dehra Dun were a local sensation. Wales played keytar in the band, which would reform as The Silent Comedy. Anyone with information about Erick should call 619-301-9283.
