Spokane County sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help to locate a 51-year-old Greenacres man who disappeared April 24 after an argument with his wife.

Christopher R. Milam had been drinking April 23 and after they argued, his wife hid all the car keys so he could not drive, according to a news release by sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Dave Reagan. When she awoke Saturday morning, Milam was gone.

Milan’s wife told detectives it appeared he took medication and $400 or $500 but left his wallet, identification and credit cards at their home in the 19800 block of East First Court.

She said the couple recently moved here from Texas and that Milam has no local family. She said he was carrying a cellular phone, but that it is either shut off or the battery is dead and it is not working.

Detectives have checked locally and with law enforcement in Texas but found no sign of Milam.

Milam is described as 5-foot-8, about 160 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information on Milan’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
