David Quang Pham

The Wyoming Department of Public Safety is seeking the public’s help in finding a missing 20-year-old.


On Tuesday, Dec. 27, the family of David Quang Pham, 20, came in to report him as a missing person to the Wyoming Department of Public Safety, according to a department press release. They reported that he went missing on Dec. 19, from their home in Wyoming.  David is five feet, eight inches and weighs 125 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.  He was last seen wearing a black coat with unknown clothing.


The Wyoming Department of Public Safety is asking for the public’s assistance as officers are working with a nine-day deficit from the time that David went missing until he was reported gone. The following may be of assistance in finding his whereabouts:


  • David is a student at MSU and has a residence in the City of Lansing.
  • He left there to return to his Wyoming home (parents) on Dec. 16.
  • The family reports David was at his Wyoming home from Dec. 16 – 19.  He was last seen at home in the early morning hours of the Dec. 19.
  • They report no known medical issues and no diagnosed mental health issues, but at the time he left was struggling with depression.
  • He has a history of leaving and being off the radar for a few days at a time, but never this long.
  • He has no phone with him and left on foot (his car and keys were left at his parent’s home and he reportedly left his phone at his Lansing residence.)
  • He is believed to have his wallet with him, but no money.
  • Lansing PD checked his Lansing residence and detectives have spoken to the Lansing roommate
  • David is known to frequent Palmer Park.  Detectives have checked the park and the woods near his Alger Street home.
