BOULDER, Colo. — A day after police issued a public plea for help finding a prominent Boulder architect who went missing Monday, detectives say no tips about his possible whereabouts have come in.

Greg Franta, 58, was last seen in the 6700 block of Federal Boulevard at about 1:30 a.m. Monday, according to video obtained by police from business surveillance cameras in that area. Franta had dinner with a family member Sunday night and did not show up at work Monday morning at Boulder’s Rocky Mountain Institute, where he is a senior vice president. His family reported him missing Tuesday.

Police officials on Friday said no one has called to report seeing Franta, or the 2006 white Honda Civic hybrid he was last seen driving.

The car had a ski rack on top and a yellow or orange sticker across the back that says, “hybrid electric.” The vehicle has a Colorado license plate number of 997GKH.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 303-441-3333. Tips can also be submitted to Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or www.crimeshurt.com.
