The Pueblo Police Department is hoping the public can help them find a 38-year-old endangered man who has been missing since Oct. 8.

According to police, Matthew Batterton rented a 2006 Black Honda Accord through an app with the Colorado license plate 017VTC that has since been reported as stolen.

Batterton sent a photo from Las Vegas, Nevada, and his last known location was in Richfield, Utah, traveling on I-70 at about 6:40 a.m. on Oct. 8. He was last known to be traveling with 51-year old Risa Johnson, who is reported as missing out of Colorado Springs.

Batterton is described as being 6'2", 190 lbs. with brown hair and eyes. He has a Tupac cross tattoo on his chest, a bee stinging a dog paw tattoo on his shoulder, and the words "Most Hated" tattooed on his right bicep.
