Authorities, family searching for missing man

His truck was found near Perseverance Trail.

Authorities and family members are searching for a missing Juneau man last seen several days ago.

Douglas Austin Martin Farnsworth, 32, was reported missing on Sept. 29, said a Juneau Police Department social media post.

“He recently cut his hair. We think he was wearing a blue long-sleeve, flannel-type shirt,” said Kiersten Farnsworth, the missing man’s sister, in a phone interview. “He called my mom Sunday (Sept. 25) and said he was going to pick something up and be home. My cousin said he saw him Monday morning at 4 a.m.”

Farnsworth is roughly 5 feet 11 inches, weighing approximately 160 pounds and has a number of tattoos, Kiersten Farnsworth said.

“He was last seen on the night of 09/26/21. A vehicle he was believed to be driving was located up on Perseverance Trail,” said Lt. Krag Campbell in an email. “(Alaska State Troopers) and (Southeast Alaska Dogs Organized for Ground Search) conducted a search in the area where the truck was found, but it is my understanding he was not located.”

Last seen in the Thunder Mountain Mobile Park, Kiersten said they ought to broaden the search area.

“He’s really social. I think we need to expand the search out a lot more,” Kiersten Farnsworth said. “He’s my baby brother.”

The family is currently fundraising to help finance their presence here to search for Farnsworth, as well as a reward for information leading to his return at https://www.gofundme.com/f/pxvrm8-help-find-doug.

Those with information on his whereabouts are asked to contact the Juneau Police Department at (907) 586-0600 or Kiersten Farnsworth at (907) 301-2662.
