Wilson, 44, was on foot in the hills above Topaz Ranch Estates on Thursday night, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office’s RAVEN helicopter was in southern Douglas County to aid in the search.

Wilson is described as 5 feet, 8 inches and 180 pounds, with shoulder-length hair. He last was seen wearing jeans and no shirt.

Anyone with information about Wilson’s location is asked to call Secret Witness at 775-782-7463.
