BOULDER, Colo. -

Boulder police are asking for help finding the person who killed Sid Wells 30 years ago.

The murder of the 22-year-old journalism student in 1983 attracted a lot of attention because Wells was dating actor Robert Redford's daughter Shauna.
Police want to find Thayne Smika, who is being sought after a murder warrant was issued in 2010.
