BEAVER (WVVA) - Family and friends have been searching for a missing 22-year-old man for ten days, and they need your help.

Robert Deane's mother said he was last seen on the morning of Sunday, June 9,  around 9:30 at his home on Tank Branch Road in Beaver.

Deane's roommate called and said he never came home, and all his belongings are there.

Deane's mother said before this happened, it had only been a day -- at most -- that they hadn't spoken.

Robert also has a distinguishing tattoo of his last name "Deane" on his left forearm.

Contact your local law enforcement if you know anything on his whereabouts.
