The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office is asking the community for tips in a missing person case.
Investigators are looking for Jance Wesly Varela (DOB 10/08/81), who was last seen in June 2022. Jance had
been staying in Loveland at the time. Family members reported him missing in July 2022 after not being able to
contact him. LCSO investigators spoke with Jance’s friends and followed up on tips about his potential
whereabouts. After exhausting all leads, they have not been able to locate Jance. Based on information received
during the course of the investigation, there is concern about his well-being.
Investigators are asking the community for any information about his location or circumstances surrounding his
disappearance. Jance is 6’4 tall, 140 pounds, with gray/brown hair and brown eyes. He may have facial hair and
has a tattoo of the pi symbol on his left hand. Photos are attached courtesy of the family.
