HORN Lake, Miss. (WMC-TV) - 38-year-old Robert Hatley of Hernando has been missing since Tuesday night.

The father of two suffers from seizures and black-out spells without his medication.

He was last seen near Nail Road in Horn lake, after he repaired a broken air conditioner for one of his tenants.

Friends believe Hatley may have run out of gas. His truck was found near the tenant's home. 

His cell phone, medication, and eye-glasses were found inside.

His credit and debit cards haven't been used and investigators say they have no reason to suspect foul play.

"You know, somebody could have picked him up and if he's not in his right mind and he wouldn't be able to tell him he's in some kind of trouble," said Lt. Scott Evans with Horn Lake Police.

DeSoto County's search and rescue team quickly took to the air as K-9 officers scoured nearby woods while Hatley's wife camped out overnight hoping for clues.

Friends and family members distributed hundreds of flyers featuring Hatley's photo.  

"He has many people who care a lot about him and just want him home," said friend Amber Ross.

Robert Hatley is 5'7" tall. He has red hair line and blue eyes. If you know of his whereabouts, call your local police precinct.
