FAIRBANKS - Fairbanks police are asking for the public’s help finding a Fairbanks man whose legal guardian has not seen him in several weeks.

William Wesley, 58, originally of Metlakatla in Southeast Alaska, was last seen on the first week of July at the Fairbanks Rescue Mission, said detective Chris Nolan with the Fairbanks Police Department. Wesley has a guardian because he is legally classified as a “vulnerable adult” because of mental issues, Nolan said. Police are asking for the public’s help in finding Wesley at the request of his guardian, not because Wesley is in trouble with the law.

There’s been no indication Wesley’s disappearance is related to foul play, he said.

Nolan described Wesley as a Native man who is about 5-foot-4 and weighs 145 pounds.

Anyone with information about Wesley’s whereabouts is asked to call Nolan at 450-6551 or the main Fairbanks Police Department number at 450-6500.

Contact staff writer Sam Friedman at 459-7545. Follow him on Twitter, @FDNMcrime
