King County sheriff’s detectives are renewing their push for information in the mysterious disappearance of a 32-year-old man nearly a year ago.

Detectives suspect Benjamin “Ben” Munoz is dead and foul play was involved.

“There does not appear to be any reason why he may be missing,” the Sheriff’s Office reported.

Munoz was last seen April 29, 2011. He lived with his father in the 11000 block of First Avenue Southwest.

Early on April 29, the father heard Munoz come home and go to bed. The father saw his son the next morning, then left the house.

Munoz, who was unemployed and didn’t have a car, hasn’t been seen or heard from since. He is 5 feet 5 and 200 pounds. He had black hair and numerous tattoos on his arms and across his shoulders.

Anyone with information about Munoz’s disappearance is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311 or 911.

King County Crime Stoppers is also offering up to $1,000 for information on the case. Reach Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
