    San Diego Police are asking for help to locate a North Park man who has been missing for more than five weeks.

    David Mow was last seen Wednesday night July 21 in the 2900 block of 30th Street in North Park. The last contact with family and friends was a text message sent on Thursday, July 22 around 6 a.m.

    Since then, a Facebook page has surfaced with postings every day of friends and family hoping to hear news about Mow.

    "Posting has gotten so painfully hard but please know to everyone we appreciate your support and words of encouragement," one post reads. "Our silence does not mean we have stopped the search, we are still determined.

    According to a website set up by family and friends, the text sent to his fiancee was the last time anyone heard from Mow . 

    "David is known by all of us as a cell phone loving kind of guy. He is texting and talking with his fiance and daughter around the clock," according to the website. "David did not reply to his fiance's text message and did not answer his phone."

    Family members say the 56-year-old may need medical attention and suffers from memory loss.  

    His cell phone is dead and his car is gone, according to friends. San Diego police have issued a missing persons alert which describes Mow as Asian but looks Hispanic or resembles a Pacific Islander. He is 5'11", weighs 250 lbs, has black hair and brown eyes.

    He works as an independent contractor on home renovations and is known to visit casinos. 

    Mow drives a 2005 Silver Envoy. The license plate is  CA 5LVJ595.
