Police want the public’s help in locating a missing Riverside, Calif. man whose vehicle was found abandoned on Highway 60 near the Salt River Canyon.

David Mark Fink, 50, was last heard from on Jan. 13 when he called his brother in Las Vegas and told him he was leaving Phoenix for Globe to take care of an errand. He said he would then drive straight through to Las Vegas.

Police discovered Fink’s black Volvo at the bottom of a canyon in Salt River Canyon near milepost 230, but no sign of Fink.

Foul play is suspected because officers found blood on the vehicle’s front compartment. Officials determined Fink was not in the vehicle when it went over the embankment. The area where Fink’s vehicle went over the embankment was near a paved pullout on the eastbound lane before topping out of the Salt River Canyon.

From the damage observed in the driver’s side windshield, Fink could have some sort of head and or facial injuries.

Anyone traveling through Salt River Canyon between Jan. 13-20 who saw Fink pulled off the side of the road or talking with anyone or any other suspicious activity please contact Det. Emmett Dickison with the Gila County Sheriff’s Office at (928) 402-4311 or

Fink is 6 feet, 4 inches tall, weighs 190 pounds and has green eyes and brown hair.
