In the afternoon of Saturday, April 21, 2018, Gunars Zagars (also known as Gunar Zagars) walked away from his apartment in Manheim Township. Zagars lived with his 90-year-old mother in the 1500 block of Butter Rd, however, his mother passed away last week and Zagars has not been seen since. Zagars suffers from a severe physical disability and is unable to walk long distances. When he does walk, his pace is extremely slow and his steps very calculated. He reportedly takes 20 minutes to walk 75 yards, at which time he must sit down and take a break.
Zagars does not own an operational cell phone or a vehicle. He also does not have a driver’s license. His family is concerned for his welfare and ability to care for himself and have declared him an endangered missing person. A coordinated search involving the Manheim Township Police Department, Manheim Township Fire Rescue, and Red Rose K9 is currently underway.
Any person knowing the whereabouts of, or comes into contact with, Zagars needs to call the Manheim Township Police Department at 717-569-6401 as soon as possible. Information can also be provided using the police department website on CRIMEWATCH.
