The Texarkana Texas Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating a missing man for whom there are welfare concerns as the result of his medical conditions.

Officers are looking for Anthony Carmeli, who walked away from his children’s soccer practice Monday evening in the 1500 block of Pine Street.  After asking another parent there to watch his children while he took care of something, witnesses say Carmeli left on foot in an unknown direction and has not been heard from since.  His cell phone was turned off shortly after he left the soccer practice.  According to Carmeli’s friends and family, this is not normal behavior for him.

Carmeli is described as a white male, 42 years old, 6’ 1”, and weighing 250 pounds.  He has brown eyes, black hair, and a goatee style beard.  He was last seen wearing a white tee shirt, shorts, and an Arkansas Razorback ball cap.

If anyone sees Carmeli or knows of his whereabouts, they are asked to contact the Texarkana Texas Police Department at 903-798-3116.
