Police are looking for an Anchorage man missing since Dec. 9, when he last talked to his mother, a police spokeswoman says.
George Nathan Krause, 55, was last seen by his mother over the weekend of Dec. 8 and 9, police spokeswoman Anita Shell said. The mother reported Krause, who lives alone, missing on Dec. 18, Shell said.
"According to his mother, she and Krause always see each other on the weekends and talk on the telephone frequently," Shell said in a written statement.
Krause lives in an apartment in the 4600 block of Juneau Street and often visits the Holiday gas station store at the corner of Old Seward Highway and Tudor Road, Shell said. He doesn't drive a car and uses the city bus system, she said.
"Krause is on semi-monthly medication he needs for mental health disorders," Shell said. "Police don't have any have any indication that Krause met with foul play but are concerned for his well being as his recent behavior is completely out of character."
Krause is described as Alaska Native, 5-foot-10 and 240 pounds, with black hair and hazel eyes.
Police ask that anyone with information on Krause's whereabouts call 786-8900.
