Anoka County authorities continued to search Monday for a 22-year-old Anoka man who was reported missing more than two weeks ago.

Kevin James Casserly was reported missing on Nov. 17 — six days after he phoned his mother, telling her that he had the flu and had to call in sick to work. He was last seen in the Anoka area the next day, according to the Anoka County's Sheriff Office.

The sheriff's office and police continued with their investigation through the weekend and on Monday, but authorities were not offering any updates. Sheriff's Office Detective Mike Schantzen said a few days ago that it's not certain if Casserly is dead or alive.

Casserly's sister, Alexandra Casserly, said he previously used methamphetamine but was clear of that recently. She said he was very involved with his two children and wouldn't just disappear.

Casserly is a white male, 6-foot-1 and about 140-160 pounds; he has brown hair and brown eyes, and a chipped front tooth. He usually wears a baseball hat and silver chain.

Anyone with information concerning his disappearance is asked to call the Anoka County Sheriff's Office at 763-427-1212.
