MCSO is seeking the public's help in locating 67-year-old James Robert Ozzie Wells. He was last seen at his home in the 26200 block of South Saddletree Drive in Sun Lakes at about 8 p.m. on May 4.

Mr. Wells is described as white, 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs 150 pounds and has grey hair and brown eyes, MCSO said.

He was last seen wearing a T-shirt and shorts.

On Tuesday, May 5, at about 7:08 a.m., Linda Wells reported her husband missing from their home, MCSO said.

"James usually frequents the San Tan Mountains trails and is on his black Schwinn Mountain Bike. James prefers riding his bike at night because of the lower temperatures," MCSO said.

"James has family members in the area and they have not heard from him. James does not have his cell phone with him but he does have his wallet. James is in good health for his age with no listed medical ailments," MCSO said.

Contact the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office at 602-876-1011 or Tips@MCSO.Maricopa.gov and/or MCSO.org with any information.
