PASCO, Wash. — Have you seen David Alexander Peeples? Family members and Tri-Cities police officers are concerned about this 62-year-old man, who was last seen at an area hospital with numerous physical injuries.

According to a social media post by the Pasco Police, Peeples’ family members in Illinois reported that he returned to the Tri-Cities for a visit recently. Since he has arrived in Pasco, they have not been able to make contact with him.
