San Jose police are investigating the disappearance of a 46-year-old man reported missing last week when he failed to show up for work.
Virdell Green Jr. was last heard from on April 30 at 5:13 p.m. when he left his current girlfriend a voicemail message, police said.
His car, a black 2002 Jeep Liberty sports utility vehicle, along with his keys and personal items, was found around 8 p.m. at his ex-girlfriend's house in San Jose, police said. Witnesses reported they didn't see Green parking the Jeep, police said.
He kept in touch with his ex-girlfriend because they have a child, police said.
His employer reported him missing on Wednesday after Green missed work in Santa Cruz on May 3. Friends, co-workers and family members say it is uncharacteristic of Green to disappear without giving notification.
Green is a member of a local musical group, but on April 30 he did not show up for scheduled musical performance engagements and band rehearsal, police said.
He is described as a black man, 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall, 170 to 180 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. Green wears prescription glasses and is also know to wear earrings.
Anyone with information regarding Green's whereabouts is asked to call the Police Department's missing persons unit at (408) 277-4786 during business hours and (408) 277-8900 or 911 after hours. People who wish to remain anonymous can call the Crime Stoppers tip line at (408) 947-STOP (7687).
