NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans police are asking for the public's help finding a Bywater man who told his friend he was going for a drive and never returned.

Jonathan Gonzales, 40, was last seen March 28. His roommate reported him missing around 11:30 p.m. that night. The roommate told police that Gonzales left their home in the 1200 block of Kentucky Street, saying he was going to get gas and go for a ride in his 1996 red Mazda Miata. His roommate hasn’t heard from him since, and Gonzales hasn’t reported for work.

Gonzales left behind his cell phone, charger, laptop and medication.

Anyone who has information about Gonzales, or thinks they may have seen him or his car, is asked to call police. Fifth District Detectives are handling the case. They can be reached at (504) 658-6050.
