WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - A man who grew up in Wichita and now lives in Minnesota, has been missing from his Minneapolis area home since last weekend.

Minneapolis CBS station WCCO reports from officials in the town of Minnetrista that Keegan Oyugi, was last seen early Saturday, June 12 in the area of Prior Lake or Savage, Minn., southwest of Minneapolis.

Oyugi was last seen wearing a red and white vertical strip shirt with a navy blue horizontal stripe at the chest, dark blue jeans and black and red shoes. He was driving a 2012 red Ford Mustang with a white strip on the rocket panel. The car has a Kansas temporary plate with number: C632096.

Eyewitness News has been told that Oyugi texted his brother that he was on his way home early Saturday morning. He never showed up.

“The parents are (in the Minneapolis area) now. They are doing anything and everything. Pretty much all hands on deck to search and find Keegan,” said Melvin Herring, Oyugi’s former coach at Wichita Southeast High School.

Herring said, “hopefully, Keegan just pops up.”

“Any scenario like this, you’re always praying for the most positive outcome of all,” he said. “You try to use all that energy to be positive and hopefully, we have a positive outcome when this is all said and done.”

Anyone with information on where Oyugi could be should call the Minnetrista Police Department at 952-446-1131. Anyone who may see Oyugi or a car matching the description of his vehicle should call 911.

After graduating from Wichita Southeast High School, Oyugi was a member of the Neosho County Community College basketball team for at least the 2012-2013 season, information from the college’s athletic department shows. His playing career extended beyond his years in Kansas, including for Crown College in Minnesota.
