    A Utah man last seen after he stopped to ask a homeowner if he could stay there on Saturday, Dec. 5, is being sought as a missing person. Haruchika "Chika" Miyagi, 34, of American Fork, Utah, was reported by that homeowner as a trespasser when he approached her place in the 17000 block of Med Bar Road near Dewey. She turned him down, and he sped away in a red Mazda sedan and crashed through a gate before leaving the property. Deputies found the Mazda two hours later in a wash near the Med Bar Road property. It was abandoned and heavily damaged.

    Friends in American Fork called authorities there when he didn't show up for work on Dec. 3. His family doesn't know why he came to Arizona. If he has a cell phone, it is turned off.

    Miyagi is 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 185 pounds, has brown eyes and brown hair. He was last seen wearing a blue, long-sleeved shirt, possibly blue pants, and Van's shoes.

    A search and follow-up with local hospitals has been unsuccessful. Miyagi may have a cell phone with him, but recent checks indicate it is off.

    It is possible Miyagi may have been picked up by a driver in the area after the Mazda became disabled.

    Bumping. This case is strange and really needs some publicity.
