Anchorage police are looking for a Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson soldier who was last seen at a Downtown motel Monday.
APD spokesperson Dani Myren says Brian Semrinec, 20, is stationed in Anchorage, but didn’t have further details on his rank or unit.
“Semrinec is active duty military,” Myren wrote. “He has not been seen or heard from since May 12 and failed to show up for work as scheduled on Tuesday, May 13. This is unusual behavior for Semrinec. Semrinec is new to Alaska and unfamiliar with the Anchorage area.”
U.S. Army Alaska spokesperson Lt. Col. Alan Brown confirms that Semrinec is a soldier, but was still gathering details on the case Thursday evening.
“We’re just getting details and getting the information,” Brown said.
Myren says that while police know Semrinec left the Ramada Inn on 3rd Avenue in Downtown Anchorage, checking out at about 9 a.m. Monday, officers don’t have word that he got into or was driving a car.
“I don’t have any information to indicate transportation or a vehicle,” Myren said.
According to Myren, Semrinec stands 6 feet, 1 inch tall and weighs 180 pounds. He has military-cut brown hair and brown eyes.
“He has a tattoo of a fish on his leg, and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt,” Myren wrote. “He may be carrying a backpack.”
Anyone with information on Semrinec’s whereabouts should call APD at 786-8900.
