“We believe he is in danger,” said police spokeswoman Ashley Hildebrandt, who declined to elaborate. “That’s really all I can say.”

Friends and family held a vigil in hopes he will return home safely.

He is described as 6-foot-1, 210 pounds and has dark hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a gray sweat top and gray sweat pants.

Police also said someone used his credit card shortly after 1 a.m. on King St. on Sept. 22. A short description police provided said the man appeared to be a black male with a mustache and goatee, a muscular build and tattoos on his forearms.
