UPDATE: Sources have identified the third person arrested in the case of 63-year-old Frank Ficara Jr. of Lakewood. The Denver Department of Environmental Health says that Ficara was charged with dumping waste while improperly disposing of waste materials in a fish enclosure. The Denver DA has issued a warrant for his arrest.

A third suspect has been arrested in the case of missing 81-year-old Frank Ficara Jr. of Lakewood.

The Denver Department of Environmental Health says that Ficara was arrested on a fine for dumping waste while improperly disposing of waste materials in a fish enclosure. The Denver DA has issued a warrant for his arrest.

The Denver Department of Environmental Health says that the three suspects have been identified as 53-year-old Frank Ficara, 54-year-old Tod Ficara and 63-year-old Frank Ficara Jr. Officials say the three men and Ficara’s wife were dumping trash, including paint thinner, into the fish enclosure, according to the department.

Those three were already under arrest for illegal dumping of hazardous waste from a home in the 100 block of Sixth Street, according to a statement from the Denver Department of Environmental Health.

According to police reports, Ficara’s wife discovered trash at the home and notified authorities. Denver police investigated the incident and concluded that the items from the backyard dumping were the same items that had been illegally dumped from the backyard on the property in the 1000 block of Sixth Street.

Frank Ficara had been reported missing by his family members on June 29. Frank Ficara’s car was found at a Lakewood gas station and after initial searches of the area and the surrounding areas, no trace of Frank Ficara was found.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Frank Ficara’s safe return.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Denver Police Department non-emergency number at 720-913-7867.
