Kentucky State Police are investigating the disappearance of a man who has not been heard from since Sunday.

Tyler North, 27, was last seen in Leslie County Sunday night around 8:15. He was leaving a family member's house in his truck.

Family members became worried when North did not show up for work Monday. They say it is unusual for him to not call or pick up his phone.

"He keeps in contact with his friends and family constantly," said Michelle Brock, North's sister.

Recent attempts to call North's phone indicate his phone is off.

"I'm just so scared something has happened to him," said Brock.

North stands 5'9" and weighs 179 pounds. He has blue eyes and blond hair. He was wearing blue and white shorts, red shoes and a camouflage hat when last seen.

"Since we found out he was missing we searched over in Leslie County. We took all the back roads," said Brock.

North's truck is a 2003 grey Dakota with a white ram sticker on the back, a push bar, fog lights and a chrome toolbox.

Family members say they just want North home safe.

"We've scoured the Leslie and Harlan County area. We've had at least 15 people looking for him. We haven't found anything that could lead us to him," said Brock.

Brock said she just hopes her brother is found safe.

"I just want to know he is okay," said Brock.

Brock adds that her brother would do anything for his friends and family.

Anyone with information about North's whereabouts is asked to call Kentucky State Police Post 13 at 606-435-6069.
