Gentry Missing Man

Northwest Missouri authorities are now asking for the public's help in looking for a man missing since Friday.

The Gentry County Sheriff's Department says 54 year old Charles Benz was last seen walking south on Highway 169 from King City. He's prone to having seizures when not on his medication and his pills were found inside his apartment. Authorities think Benz may be enroute to St. Joseph or Kansas City but hasn't been heard from since Friday. He's known to frequent small bars as well as lakes and ponds. He's described as a white male 6 feet one inch high, about 155 pounds with black and gray hair, blue eyes, and a pale complexion. He was last seen in a T-shirt and shorts. Anyone knowing his whereabouts is asked to call local law enforcement immediately.
