DENVER — Family, friends and volunteers gathered together Saturday to search for a Denver man who has been missing for about a month.

Adam Gilbertson, 29, was last seen leaving Syntax Physic Opera at 554 South Broadway just before 1 a.m. on December 15.

His family from Minnesota traveled to Denver for the search effort.

“We need to find Adam. We love Adam and Adam would be out here searching for us. And we will continue to search until he is found,” Elise Wacchendorf, a friend said.

“Many thanks to everyone who came out today. It was overwhelming to see the outpouring of support from so many. I believe the number of folks who assisted in the search was around 130,” a post on the Find Adam Ronald Gilbertson Facebook page said.

A member of that search team found the body of a man in the South Platte River near Kalamath and Virginia Saturday afternoon. Denver police responded to launch a death investigation. Police did not know the identity of the person who was found dead. The medical examiner will work to make an identification.

Adam’s family and friends started searching in December

Family and friends traveled to Denver to try to help find him as soon as he disappeared in December. They said his cellphone has been shut off and attempts to reach him have been unsuccessful.

They also say this is not something he would do.

Family members say his keys were found inside his apartment and that a side door had been left unlocked.

Anyone with information can call Denver Police.
