The Storey County Sheriff's Office is looking for a missing Sparks man.

Sheriff Gerald Antinoro says 35-year old Marcus Moreland was recently reported missing after his vehicle was found in a remote area of Storey County. Moreland had already been missing for eight months by the time the missing persons report was filed. Sheriff Antinoro says no one has had contact with Moreland in the past eight months.

On Wednesday, search and rescue crews searched the Lagomarsino Canyon area of Storey County, where Moreland was known to be in June of 2012.

"There is no indication that Moreland was the victim of foul play at the present time," said Sheriff Antinoro. "However, there are concerns he may have fell victim to misadventure in the canyons if he attempted to walk out of the area." 

Sheriff Antinoro says Moreland's vehicle had gotten stuck in the mud where it was found and had been unable to be moved, leading investigators to believe he tried to leave the area on foot.

Moreland is described as a white man, 5'7", 160 lbs. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.

If you have any information on Moreland's whereabouts, contact Sheriff Antinoro's office at (775) 847-0959.
