WHITE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Police are looking for a Brookston man who has been missing since Thursday.

Austin Wolfe is believed to be a danger to himself and to others.

Wolfe, 28, is described as 5 feet 7 inches tall and about 140 pounds. He has short black hair and brown eyes.

Police say he was last seen wearing dark gray sweatpants and a gray West Virginia sweatshirt with yellow lettering.

Family last had contact with Wolfe at 6 a.m. on Nov. 30.

Wolfe's sister, Mallory Molter said the past few days have felt like one long day. 

"I just want him to come home safe, and I don't care what he's done, what he hasn't done, who he's been with I just want him to come home," said Molter. 

She said he has never gone this long without contacting family before. He doesn't have a car, leading police to believe he walked to wherever he went.

The family is trying to stay hopeful. 

"Maybe somebody saw him, or has talked to him and maybe they'll see this or Facebook or anything and they'll call somebody and it will get back to somebody," said Molter. 

If you have any information on Austin Wolfe, you are asked to contact the White County Sheriff's Department at 1-800-676-7103.
