The Atlanta Police Department has issued a Mattie’s Call for a man who went missing this weekend at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and is seeking the public’s help in finding him.

The call was issued for Christopher Dasilva, 36, who flew to the Atlanta airport from Milwaukee Jan. 19 and was supposed to take a connecting flight to New Jersey later that day, according to an email from Sgt. John Chafee, a police spokesman.

But Dasilva, who according to a police missing person report was last seen at the airport at 8:30 a.m., missed his connecting flight and family members contacted police Jan. 20 to say he was missing.

Dasilva is described as a white male, 6 feet tall and 215 pounds. According to Chafee, he “suffered a brain injury as a child and reportedly suffers from mental issues.”

Anyone with information on Dasilva’s whereabouts is asked to call 911 or the department's adult missing persons unit at 404-546-4235.
