David Kaiser, an Edina native living in Montana for the last three years, has been missing in that state for nearly two weeks.

WCCO-TV reports the Ravalli County Sheriff’s office in Hamilton, Mont., says the 53-year-old David Philip Kaiser was last seen on June 28, and was reported missing the next day.

He opened his own cafe in Victor, Mont., just two days earlier, according to his family in Minnesota, the Star Tribune reports.

Kaiser is described as white, 5 feet 4 inches tall and about 200 pounds. He has blond hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing a dark blue polo shirt, bluejeans and red and white tennis shoes.

The Sheriff’s Office said he may be traveling in his black and silver 2005 Chevy TrailBlazer.

In addition to two grown children and three brothers he has in the Twin Cities, Kaiser is also known as one of the founders of Mr. Movies, a video rental chain that was based in Eden Prairie, the Star Tribune says.

According to his family, Kaiser lived in Minnesota for all of his life before moving to Montana three years ago, says 'CCO.

Last fall, he ran as a Libertarian candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives.
