The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension are asking for the public's assistance in finding a man who hasn't been heard from in a month.

Robert “Bob” Rabbers, a 57-year-old from Brookston, Minnesota, was last seen on Feb. 1 driving a gold ‘04 Kia Sorento, a news release says:

His car has either a Florida temporary dealer plate with the number CIY4185, "or possibly Minn. license plate ABD197."

He's 6’01 and 185 lbs. with green eyes and gray hair, and has a red and blue dragon head tattoo on his left shoulder. 

The Duluth News Tribune says Rabbers was last seen leaving his home, and reported missing on Thursday.

Otherwise, the circumstances leading up to his disappearance have not been made clear.

Anyone with information about Rabbers' whereabouts is urged to contact contact the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office Investigative Division at 218-336-4350 or dial 911.
