by Glenn Wohltmann

Pleasanton police have released a new composite picture of a man who disappeared nearly 10 years ago.

Shane Anest was 22 years old when he was reported missing Oct. 1, 2003. He was last seen in the Archstone Apartment Complex located at 5650 Owens Drive on Sept. 28, 2003, and has not been seen or heard from since.

Anest would be 32 years old now, and police say the case has been active since his disappearance. A sketch of what Anest may look like today was made by forensic artist Marie Rankin.

He is described as a while male adult, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 170 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Anest had a tattoo of a deck of cards on his chest, the letter "S" tattooed on his right shoulder, and possibly a half inch letter S tattooed between his left thumb and first finger. He may also have the words "Shane" or "Anest" in Old English writing tattooed on his upper back or upper right arm.

Anyone with information about Anest's whereabouts is asked to contact the Pleasanton police Investigations Unit at 931-5134, and reference Pleasanton Police Department case No. 2003-5793.
