SLIDELL, LA — The Slidell Police Department hopes you can help officers locate a missing man.  He’s identified as Mitchell Phillips.  According to police, he’s 26-years-old and is six feet tall, 190 pounds.

Police say that Phillips was last seen leaving his home near Pontchartrain Drive at about 1:00 in the afternoon on New Year’s Day.  He hasn’t been heard from since that time.

Police do not suspect foul play but say that Phillips could be a danger to himself and is not taking his prescribed medications.  They say he could be anywhere in the New Orleans metro area.
