WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Update Tuesday, June 15, 2021: The family of a 53-year-old Wichita man is offering a $1,000 reward in hopes that he’ll be found. Darren Walker, of Wichita, was reported missing on May 20.

“At this point, I just say, keep your eyes open anywhere. If you think it might be him, please reach out. Please call. I’m never going to be mad to to in a certain part of town and find that it wasn’t him,” said Walker’s sister, Julie Walker. “I’m more concerned about his well-being.”

Julie Walker said it’s not like her brother didn’t run away.

“”This isn’t something that Darren has ever done. He’s not missing because he wants to be,” she said. “He hasn’t run away, we’re just worried. We’re out there looking for him, thinking that maybe something’s wrong, maybe he’s hurt, maybe he’s been hurt, but he’s not the typical person that runs off. He has a home.”

Thursday, June 10, 2021: The Wichita Police Department is asking for the public’s help to locate 53-year-old Darren Walker of Wichita.

Police say he was last seen on May 20 at his home in the 400 block of West Central. He is described as 5′10 tall, 175 pounds, with green eyes and white hair.

Walker was recently released from the hospital for cancer treatment which has led to the use of a colostomy bag. He needs continual assistance and medical supplies to treat his recent surgery and is missing under circumstances not conforming to his normal routine or habits.

If you know Walker’s whereabouts or see him, you are asked to call 911 immediately or call Detective Donnie Moore at 316-268-4114.
