Lakewood police are investigating the whereabouts of three men who last were seen Sunday and seek the public's help in finding them.

Their disappearance is suspicious, and it is unusual for them to be out of contact with their families, said Lt. Chris Lawler.

Missing are Jesus Bejar Avila, 25, of Lakewood; Yazmany Quezada Ortiz, 25, of Tacoma, and Christian Alberto Rangel, 19, of University Place.

All three work at the Lake Union Wholesale Florist in Seattle and carpooled to work Sunday. They left work together about 3:15 p.m. Sunday in Ortiz’s silver-colored 2007 Chevrolet Silverado.

Police found the truck Wednesday at an apartment complex in the 6200 block of James Street in Kent.

The men were seen briefly at the complex, Lawler said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Lakewood Police Department at 253-830-5000.
