Staff reports

Family, friends and Auburn Police are asking for the public's help in finding a 20-year-old Auburn man who has been missing since early April.

Robert Jacob Todd was last seen on April 11. He was reported missing on April 15.

According to the Auburn Police Department, Todd had told friends living in Lakeland Hills that he was going to walk to their home from 4205 Auburn Way S, about five miles away. He never made it and hasn't been seen or heard from since.

Reports are that Todd planned to take various trails in the area, among them one in the area of Dogwood/Forest Ridge Drive and another along the White River Trail on the south bank of the river.

Todd is a white male about 6 feet tall, 180 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt, shorts over "skinny jeans" and blue Nike shoes with a bright orange Nike swoosh.

"We have searched — with the assistance of King County Search and Rescue and King County Guardian One — the wooded areas along the White River trail, with no luck. We are hoping that someone who knows Robert will call us with information," said Auburn Police Commander Mike Hirman.

Anyone with information on Robert Todd is asked to call 911 or the Auburn Police Department Tip Line at 253-288-7403.
