RPD posted alerts about missing 29-year-old Vitality L. Lakotiy

The Renton Police Department has posted alerts regarding a missing person named Vitaliy L. Lakotiy.

RPD made posts on their social media accounts describing Lakotiy as a 29-year-old white male, 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing approximately 180 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.

According to police, Lakotiy has not been in touch with his family for approximately one month which is highly unusual for him. They say his family has exhausted all leads regarding his whereabouts and are very concerned about his mental and physical health, especially in light of the freezing temperatures the area is experiencing.

Police say Lakotiy has no cellphone, no vehicle and typically travels by foot or bus police. He has been known to frequent homeless encampments in the area, most notably the wooded area near the 3000 Block of Royal Hills Drive.

For any tips regarding his whereabouts, please reach out to Det. Renggli at jrenggli@rentonwa.gov or 425-430-7500.
