TOOELE, Utah — Search efforts for a missing Tooele man have so far been unsuccessful.

Rick Morris, 32, went missing from his home in the early hours of June 25 and hasn’t been seen since. Morris is a Type 1 diabetic, who struggled recently to manage his blood sugar.

His family is concerned that time may be running out.

“Everything that he needs to survive is at home,” Mariah Morris, a sister to Rick, told KSL-TV. “He just like vanished. There’s no trace.”

Search continues for missing Tooele man

Mariah Morris said her brother had not been acting normal before his disappearance. But she said family members thought they had things under control.

“They got him to eat a sandwich and told him they would come back and check on him,” Mariah Morris said. “It seemed like he was kind of coming out of it a little bit. And when they came back, Rick was gone.”

Rick Morris is 6-foot-2, 150 pounds and was last seen at 700 South and 770 West in Tooele.  He was last seen wearing baggy jeans and shoes. 

His sister said without the supplies he needs to survive, the worst case scenario is possible.

“He would find somewhere to sleep or to rest or to hide,” Mariah Morris said. “He wouldn’t wake up from that. So he would go into a coma, a diabetic coma and mostly likely die.”

How to help

Anyone with direct knowledge of where he may be are asked to call the Tooele City Police Department at 435-882-5600. Additional information on the search for the missing man can be found at the Find Rick Morris Facebook page.
