[ARCHIVED] Missing Adult-Welfare Check: Daniel A. Pronkin


Missing Adult-Welfare Check: Daniel A. Pronkin

Spokane Valley Deputies are attempting to locate an adult male, 22-year-old Daniel A. Pronkin, to check his welfare and are asking for your help. 

If you have seen Daniel A. Pronkin or know his whereabouts, you are asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233, reference #10136524.    

On September 9, 2023, a family member reported Daniel A. Pronkin as missing.  He was last seen leaving his home on N. Willow Road in Spokane Valley on September 6, 2023, at approximately 2:15 pm.  It was believed he was driving his red 2002 Honda Civic because it was also not at his address.  At that time, no emergent factors were noted, and as an adult, people are free to leave/travel without letting others know and have a right to privacy.

However, Pronkin was entered into the computer system as a possible missing/welfare check, meaning law enforcement would be notified if he were contacted and had his name checked.

On September 12, 2023, at approximately 12:05 am, Spokane Valley Deputies responded to the Dishman Hills area, 8509 E. Appleway, regarding a suspicious vehicle.   Security working the area reported a red Honda Civic was in the parking lot and had been there since September 7, 2023.   The car was later determined to be Pronkin’s.  

As Deputies investigated, they found the vehicle unoccupied and locked.  They observed a cell phone and wallet sitting on the vehicle's passenger seat.  Upon closer inspection, there were no apparent signs of criminal activity or notes indicating where Pronkin may have gone.  Deputies contacted Pronkin’s family, and no additional information was learned.  

Deputies and UAS (unmanned aerial systems) were used to search the heavily wooded area without success.  PA announcements were broadcast in an attempt to locate him but were also unsuccessful.   Deputies also checked the area on foot this morning/afternoon, but Pronkin was not found.    

It is unknown if Daniel Pronkin is in the Dishman Hills area or if he left with someone and is possibly somewhere else.

With this noted information and Pronkin’s family being extremely worried due to this highly unusual behavior, Deputies are asking for your help finding Pronkin.      

Daniel A. Pronkin is described as a 22-year-old white male, approximately 5’07”, 165 lbs, with brown hair and brown eyes, and wears glasses.  He was last seen wearing a black/gray shirt and dark pants. 

If you have seen Daniel A. Pronkin or know his whereabouts, you are asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233, reference #10136524.
