Lakewood police asked for the public’s help Tuesday in finding a paramedic who went missing after an argument with some friends.

Eric Pracht was last seen about midnight Friday on the 1600 block of South Cole Street, southwest of William Frederick Hayden Park, Lakewood police spokesman Steve Davis said.

On Friday, Pracht had a “heated discussion” with some of his friends.

“He and his girlfriend took a big bag of trash out to the dumpster. They argued a little bit. She went back inside and that was the last time he was seen,” Davis said.

Pracht, 25, was last seen wearing tan shorts and a blue shirt. He is 5-feet-11-inches tall and 150 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes.

Lakewood Police Department doesn’t believe Pracht was involved in a crime or suicidal, Davis said.

“The guy walked away and hasn’t been heard from, so we’re just trying to locate him so that we can see that he’s OK.”

Those with information or who see Pracht are asked to call 303-987-7111.
