WHEATLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Michigan State Police are looking for a 70-year-old Wheatland Township man believed to be endangered, according to a news release Monday.

Richard Lee Wymer was last seen about 10 a.m. Sunday near the 7000 block of 10th Avenue in Wheatland Township.

He was shoveling his driveway and left in his 2000 Suburban northbound from his home toward M-20.

The vehicle is a gun metal gray suburban with a large Harley Davidson decal on the back window, and most likely has a Trump MAGA hat on the dashboard.

MSP says the vehicle also shows age and has rust.

Wymer left his wallet, credit cards, cash, cell phone and his favorite knife at home.

His car has about one-third tank of gas with minimal spare change in it, and it’s unknown if there was any other money inside.

Wymer has spent most of his life in the Gratiot County area but does have property in the Mancelona area.

He’s described as a white man with should-length gray hair, 240 pounds, 6’2”, blue eyes and a tattoo of a lion lifting weights on his upper left arm.

Wymer was last seen wearing a flannel coat, a light brown stocking hat, blue jeans and green boots.
