FARMINGTON, N.M. – Michelle Hasting-Johnson has been searching for her husband since Dec 7. who disappeared without a trace from the Northern edge Casino in San Juan County that borders the Navajo Nation.

“My husband was dropped off at the casino around 5pm on Dec 7 by a female coworker he was seen sitting inside the casino lobby, a camera shows he was heavily intoxicated. Then about 530pm he is seen walking out of the casino and off the property.”she said in an interview with the Navajo Post. 

“The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office has searched the area west and north of the casino. And they show his last out bound text message was when he walked off the casino property.”

Johnson said she is worried, but remains optimistic he is still alive. She posted his photo throughout facebook hoping someone would have a solid lead to bring Lester home. According to family and friends of Lester, he does not have any mental disorders and has always been open about where he was.

“He did not show up to work since last being spotted on the Casino Surveillance camera. He hasn’t used his debit card or phone since that day. Along with police doing their searches, we the family have done our own search, but no luck.” she said. 

Lester worked as an Assistant Manager in Farmington, N.M. at Long John Silver “he has been employed for over a ten year period, he reached Tiny Tots & 8-9 yr old Boys Basketball at the Shiprock Boys & Girls Club for the past three years. It is not like him just up and disappear, as well as not contact any family members.” she said.

If you have seen Lester or have any information, you can contact the San Juan County Sheriff Office at 1-505-334-6107.
