Guam - The Guam Police Department is searching for a 25-year-old man from Yigo and they're hoping if you have any information to please come forward. Christopher Thomas Quitugua is described as standing 5'9", weighing about 120 pounds with short black wavy hair, brown eyes and a medium complexion.

According to his father, Joey Quitugua, his son suffers from ADHD and has a severe mental disorder with a mindset of a 6th grader. He was last seen wearing a brown t-shirt with blue jeans and blue rubber shoes when he left his house along Manget Duncga Street in Yigo yesterday morning. "He usually hangs out down in Tumon somewhere he's known with the police officers down there in Tumon and also he hangs out at Micronesian Mall and GPO, so if you happen to see Chris tell him we are looking for him," Joey urged.

GPD units along with CAPE volunteer Richard Burkhart and his search-&-rescue dog launched a search team at around 4:30 this afternoon to attempt to locate Christopher. "I've got a get a scent cloth today and we're just going to take our time and go see if we can find a starting point and then we'll go from there," said Burkhart.

If you have any information regarding Christopher's whereabouts contact GPD's Criminal Investigation Division unit at 475-8618 or the Tamuning Precinct for immediate information.   

Jolene adds that it was Christopher's father's birthday yesterday.  Christopher told his dad he was going to get him a gift for his birthday but never returned.

Once again if you have any information on his whereabouts please call 475-8618.
