COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. -- Police are asking for help finding a Cottage Grove man who disappeared nearly six years ago.

Police said Robert Richardson went missing on Feb. 14, 2012. He was 60-years-old at the time.

Richardson left indicators that he might harm himself, according to police.

Investigators said Richardson contacted his family and told them where they could find his Ford Ranger pickup. Detectives were able to find the pickup on Gowdyville Road but there was no sign of Richardson.

They said at the time of his disappearance, Richardson had mobility issues and they don't believe he would be able to walk long distances. Police said he suggested that he was waiting for a friend to give him a ride out of the area.
