It’s been six days since a Missouri man disappeared from his Trenton home. Police say there’s been no trace of him since.

Tanner Ward, 19, left Wednesday on foot from 12th Street in Trenton. The area is residential and heavily populated, but nobody has reported seeing Ward. Trenton police say no concrete tips have been filed regarding the man’s whereabouts. The Trenton Police Department has issued an endangered person advisory.

“We think there’s a good potential he’s in danger,” said Chief Tommy Wright. “We’re looking for any information people have.”

Wright added Ward has ties to the Kansas City area.

Ward is 6 feet, 2 inches, 165 pounds and has brown hair, blue eyes and was last seen wearing a gray T-shirt, blue jeans and black Vans shoes. He has a tattoo of a sailboat on his right palm.

“He fits the criteria … of an endangered person,” Wright said. “He’s not been seen or heard from since he left his mother’s house on foot. He has no car, no phone, and none of his family, which he’s typically in contact with daily, has seen him.”
