New clues, surveillance video in search for missing Mounds View man

Friends and family of Henry McCabe, the Mounds View man who's been missing since Labor Day, have been gathering on Saturdays to search for the 32-year-old husband, father and Minnesota Department of Revenue auditor.

But FOX 9 reports they now believe that they’ve been looking for him in the wrong place.

The station said that that searchers have been operating on the idea that McCabe was last seen when he was dropped off at a SuperAmerica gas station in Fridley in the early morning hours on Sept. 7.

But McCabe's family announced Saturday that new surveillance video shows he was actually dropped off at a Fridley Holiday gas station instead.

KARE reports that Mounds View police say they are investigating the new location.

KSTP reported that as the search shifted to the new location, investigators are also reviewing a two minute voicemail that McCabe left for his wife on the night that he vanished.

"We believe that somebody saw something or heard something that night," David Singleton with the Minnesota Community Policing Services told the station.

A joint investigation includes officers from several different police departments, including those in Mounds View, Fridley, and New Brighton. The FBI is also involved in the investigation. The Pioneer Press has reported that police are calling it a missing-person case and haven't said foul play is suspected.

McCabe was born in Liberia and previously lived in California and has family in both places.

A Gofundme account has been set up to help defray search costs for the family.
