Authorities are asking the public to help keep an eye out for a missing man who was last seen Oct. 20. 

The Scott County Sheriff's Office issued a release saying Daniel Joseph Bade, 48, left his home in Credit River Township near Prior Lake on Sunday and hasn't been seen since. 

Bade was last seen wearing a charcoal-gray sweatshirt with blue jeans and driving a 2012 Toyota RAV4, white in color, with Minnesota license plate MLU-012.
