Athens man missing for over a month


By Joe Johnson

Athens-Clarke County police are searching for a man who has been missing for over a month.

According to a police report, 25-year-old Frank Christopher Stefan was last seen on Dec. 24 by a roommate at his home on South Rocksprings Street.

He was reported missing by his landlord on Jan. 12.

The landlord reportedly told police he had not seen or spoken to Stefan since Dec. 10.

When making the report to police, the landlord said that Stefan had moved into the westside home six weeks prior, and that he had just renewed his lease for six months.

The landlord provided police with Stefan’s wallet, which he said had been in the missing man's room, along with his house keys.

A roommate told police that Stefan told him on Christmas Eve that he was going for a walk, but he never returned.

An officer wrote in the police report that she looked through Stefan’s room but did not observe anything that would make her suspect foul play. The report noted that all of the man’s belongings appeared to be in the room.

A missing person notice was posted to the ACCPD Facebook page Monday morning.

"While there are no obvious signs of foul play, it is unusual for Mr. Stefan to be gone for this amount of time," police said.

Stefan was described by police as a white male with balding brown hair, is five feet, eight inches tall, weighs 145 pounds, and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a gray beanie cap.

He goes by the name “Chris.”

Anyone with information on Stefan’s whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Lamar Glenn at (762) 400-7368 or lamar.glenn@accgov.com.
