Family continues search for missing man

The family of a missing Boulder City man continues to hold hope that 19-year-old Julion Jasinski will be found.

Marti Goss, Jasinski’s grandmother, said there have been a few sightings in town of the man who has been missing since June 11, but that he has not returned home. There is a national missing person alert for him, as well as information about Jasinski on the Nevada Child Seekers’ website.

Additionally, reports have been filed with the Boulder City and Las Vegas police departments, and Red Rock Search and Rescue has been working with the family.

Goss said Jasinski is under doctor’s care and hasn’t taken his medication in more than a month.

She said he left after arguing with family and friends.

According to the family’s missing person flier, Jasinski is 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighs 180 pounds and has blond hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing tan camouflage pants, tan boots and a black backpack.

If you have any information regarding Jasinski’s whereabouts, call 702-371-1632 or the Boulder City Police Department at 702-293-9224.
