The Shreveport Police Department needs your help to find a man who has not been seen since early yesterday morning.

Rickey Pierson has been missing since July 5, 2011 when he left his home in west Shreveport driving his silver four-door 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix bearing Louisiana license plate “PYZ601”.

Mr. Pierson is a 54 year old black male who stands five feet eight inches tall and weighs about 190 pounds.  

While detectives do not believe foul play is involved at this early stage of their investigation, they are concerned for the welfare Mr. Pierson. Family members tell investigators he does have medical problems and it is out of character for him to disappear like this.  If anyone has information regarding the whereabouts of Rickey Pierson, they are asked to call Detective Alain Jones at 318-673-7020 or Shreveport-Caddo Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
