The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to be on the lookout for a Hidden Valley man who has not been seen by family for four days.

Scott Madden, age 38, was last seen in the area of his residence on Rough Rock Road at approximately 9:45 p.m. on Saturday, July 13, 2019. Family members say it is unusual for him to be gone for so long without making contact and are concerned for his safety.

Madden is described as a white male, 6 feet, 4 inches tall, brown hair and blue eyes. He is believed to be driving a silver 2011 Toyota 4Runner with damage to the driver’s side rear door and no trim over the rear tire on the driver’s side. The vehicle has an Air Force Veteran license plate: VF 2081.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Mr. Madden is asked to contact Washoe County Sheriff’s Dispatch at (775) 785-WCSO.
