The Juneau Police Department released a video on Friday that shows a person in downtown Juneau believed to be the missing 22-year-old man who hasn’t been seen or heard from in more than three weeks.
Police said Christopher Edward Orcutt could be the person seen on camera at 2:30 a.m. Friday outside the Parkshore Condominiums, 800 F St. In the video — posted on JPD’s Facebook page — a person is seen riding up on a bicycle and stopping near two other parked bicycles. The person appears to have short hair, light facial hair and is wearing pants and a dark, long sleeve top.
According to the police department’s press release, Orcutt’s family members have seen the video as well. JPD spokesman Lt. David Campbell said in a phone interview Friday that Orcutt’s sister Liddie-Marie Armstron believes Orcutt is the person in the video.
Orcutt, who grew up in Juneau but has a home in Washington state, was last seen the night of Aug. 25. after leaving a party at an apartment over a downtown store, according to a previous JPD press release. On Tuesday, police searched the Thane Campground area, which is the only place police know of where Orcutt was staying while in town, JPD Lt. Kris Sell told the Empire. Four dog teams from Southeast Alaska Dogs Organized for Ground Search (SEADOGS) also assisted during the search.
Police did not find Orcutt or a campsite that appeared to be his at the campground.
Lt. Campbell said that anyone with information about the person seen in the video, even if they know it isn’t Orcutt, should contact police immediately at 586-0600. Ruling out the person as Orcutt is also important to move forward with the investigation, Campbell said.
