Almost a month after Jason Many Fingers was last seen, family and friends are pleading for the public’s help in locating the 46-year-old man.

His father, Randy Manyfingers, said it is uncharacteristic of his son to go away like this and not contact his family.

“Jason is very friendly, outgoing, and he was staying at our house the past two months with his daughter,” said Randy.

Many Fingers is a single father with four children and his sudden disappearance has left his family devastated.

“Shelby is in school right now and his daughter is always asking, ‘Where’s my dad?’ and we can’t really answer,” added the father of Many Fingers.
