(WMC-TV) - Arkansas police are searching for an 80-year-old man who has been missing for two weeks.

Andrew Haukereid left San Antonio, TX on an Amtrak train heading toward Chicago.  The senior planned on attending his 80th birthday celebration which was scheduled for this past Saturday.

Haukereid's luggage made it to Chicago, but he did not. The family is saying Haukereid went missing somewhere between Little Rock and St. Louis.

Since he has been missing, his sons have been scouring areas they think he may have been.

Amtrak police were investigating the disappearance, but recently they asked Arkansas police to take over. Arkansas State Police has since issued a Silver Alert for Andrew Haukereid.

He was last spotted at the Amtrak station in Little Rock on May 19.

If you have any information regarding Haukereid's location, the family has set up a Facebook page hoping someone will know something about their father's location.
