I have another easy Riley riddle for the community.

Let us seek the prefix, remove the k from latch.

Observe the infix in it's prime, located on the map.

Seek the suffix in the past, eaten by those who dwell.

Together not the word you seek; the synonyms will surely tell.

You are

Locate/Found

Let us seek the prefix, remove the k from latch.

Loc from Mark!

Observe the infix in it's prime, located on the map.

Ca for California

Seek the suffix in the past, eaten by those who dwell.

Ate from eat.

Together not the word you seek; the synonyms will surely tell.

Acrostic says lost so this would be lost and found :)

Partial answer:

Let us seek the prefix, remove the k from latch.

lock -> loc

Observe the infix in it's prime, located on the map.

peak(?) height? - mountain peaks are located on the map, and the meaning is similar to prime

Seek the suffix in the past, eaten by those who dwell.

eon is a geologic time unit

Together not the word you seek; the synonyms will surely tell.

loc...eon?

My wildest guess:

loc height eon -> location?

Last guess for today:

If US is in its prime, then it might be locust.

    $\begingroup$ So close, yet so far away! :D Haha, see my pun there? LOL Still a good answer and you seriously are close; the prefix is correct but the infix and suffix are wrong. $\endgroup$ – PerpetualJ Sep 18 '18 at 20:53
  • $\begingroup$ Was pretty sure that it would be the case. XD Someday I'll solve 'em. Someday... $\endgroup$ – Mark Sep 18 '18 at 21:04
  • $\begingroup$ Suddenly your answer grew farther from the truth lol Good attempts either way! $\endgroup$ – PerpetualJ Sep 18 '18 at 21:29
