Search shifts for missing Mounds View man

Searchers again will look for a missing Mounds View man when they gather Saturday at 10 a.m. in New Brighton. Henry McCabe, 32, was last seen Labor Day and hasn't been in contact with his family or his employer, the Minnesota Department of Revenue. "All possibilities remain open," Mounds View Police Chief Tom Kinney said Friday of the investigation into McCabe's disappearance.

Kinney said deputies from the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office water patrol unit searched Rice Creek on Tuesday for any signs of McCabe, but found nothing. They traveled the creek from Long Lake in New Brighton to Locke Lake before it enters the Mississippi River in Fridley, Kinney said.

Saturday's search will begin at the intersection of Silver Lake Road and Mississippi Street at Creekview Park in New Brighton, the location of the last call placed from McCabe's cellphone. His wife answered that call, at 2:28 a.m. on Labor Day, to hear what sounded like moaning and screams.

Members of the Liberian community in Minnesota previously searched portions of Fridley and Spring Lake Park. McCabe is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds, according to a Facebook page created to alert people to his disappearance. Anybody with information can contact police at 763-717-4070 or the Ramsey County dispatch line at 651-484-9155.
