Authorities plan another search near Grand Mound this week in hopes of finding a 20-year-old man who went missing late last month.

Matthew Anfeldt was last seen Feb. 28. A neighbor called deputies after Anfeldt came to her door that evening ranting that his family was hurt or dead and “they were after him,” according to the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office.

A worker at Speedway Grocery on Old Highway 99 later reported Anfeldt came into the store panicked and with dried blood around his mouth, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The Sheriff’s Office says Anfeldt may have used methamphetamine, ecstasy or lorazepam.

On Tuesday, authorities searched the area using a drone. A search on foot using police dogs is planned for Thursday.

Last week, the Sheriff’s Office asked property owners along Old Highway 99 near Interstate 5 to search their properties, including outbuildings, crawl spaces, tall grass and wooded areas.

“Remember, the missing subject appeared to be in a high state of delirium when last seen. Because of that, a correlating medical emergency could have easily followed,” according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Anfeldt is described as 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds. He was wearing a black and gray Chicago Bulls sweatshirt, gray sweatpants and no shoes when he went missing.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Mickey Hamilton at 360-688-6696.
