WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — Police in West Valley City are asking for the public’s help as they search for a missing man they say is considered endangered.

Police say 34-year-old Joshua Bakker was last seen around 3 p.m. in the area of 3500 West and 4000 South.

Authorities say Bakker has a diminished mental capacity and also requires medication to manage “extreme seizures”, and they are concerned for his well-being because he does not have access to his medication.
