Kansas City Star

Authorities today put out a national missing person report on a Bates County, Mo., man who hasn’t reported to work or contacted family members in several days.

David Cook, 55, who lives near Amsterdam, Mo., is 6 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds. He is a longtime employee at the Kansas City Power & Light plant in La Cygne, Kan.

Both of his vehicles were at the house when law enforcement conducted a search. His billfold was found inside the home and the house was not in disarray.

Investigators say Cook’s cell phone had not been used in several days. His sister told The Kansas City Star that Cook usually called friends and family several times a day.

“We are scared of foul play,” Judy Transue said. “Hopefully, somebody knows something and will call in.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Bates County Sheriff’s Office at 660-679-3232.
