Our original story: 

The Metro Police Authority of Genesee County in Swartz Creek, Michigan is searching for missing 41-year-old truck driver Patrick Paul Weinheimer, who they consider to be “endangered.”

WNEM reports Weinheimer was last seen Feb. 13 around 12:30 a.m. at the Speedway filling station in Mundy Township at US 23 and Grand Blanc Road. Weinheimer did not make his final delivery that night, his family told WNEM.

His truck was found at a Shell gas station across the street from the Speedway with the keys in the ignition and Weinheimer’s home keys, wallet and cell phone in the truck. Police say Weinheimer is considered “endangered” because of the state his truck was found in, according to WNEM.

Weinheimer is 41, 6-feet-tall, weighs 250 pounds, has red hair, and has green eyes.

Anyone with information about Weinheimer’s disappearance should call the Metro Police Authority of Genesee County at 810-820-2190 during business hours. After hours, contact Genessee County Central Dispatch at 810-732-9911.
