LAWRENCEBURG, In. (WXIX) - Sheriff’s deputies are searching for a 59-year-old Dearborn County man.

According to his relatives, Paul Bradley disappeared from the Lawrenceburg area on April 3. A statewide Silver Alert has been declared in his case.

“He was last seen April 3rd, probably around 8:30 p.m. supposedly leaving a friend’s house, and he was supposedly going straight home ‘cause his truck was overheating,” Ashley Bradley, his daughter, said.

Bradley is described as 5′11″ and 210 lbs. with gray hair and blue eyes. Ashley said he was wearing a black T-shirt and black gym shorts at the time he vanished.

“For him to be gone this long, I feel like something’s wrong,” she said. “Something is really wrong, and I don’t want to think that, but he would’ve reached out to somebody by now.”

Deputies say he was last seen driving a maroon 2000 Dodge Dakota with Indiana plate TK431OAP.

“As far as I know, he did have a phone, but I don’t know if it was on... I’ve been making phone calls to jails, to rehab centers.. you know, hospitals, or something,” Ashley said. “It’s a lot, and we never in a million years thought something like this would happen to our family.”

Bradley is believed to be in extreme danger, per the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Office, because he requires medication and could be in a life-threatening situation without it.

“I hope and pray that he is okay,” Ashley said. “We just want him home. We just want him home safe. We just want to know he’s okay.”

Ashley said her father would not have left on his own and stayed away this long without making contact with loved ones.

“He’s a really kindhearted person, you know. He’s always been about his grandkids,” she said.

A post on the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Office page states Bradley disappeared on April 11. However, Ashley said she believes that is actually the date he was officially reported missing. To her knowledge, her father has been gone since April 3.

If you have any information on Paul Bradley, contact the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department at 812-532-3200 or 911.
