The Ames Police Department says 21-year-old Thomas Dooley has been missing since January 31st.

None of his family members, roommates or friends have spoke to him since that date.

 "They hadn't heard from him in quite some time and during the course of our investigation, we determined a lot of people hadn't heard from him for awhile," said Commander Geoff Huff with the Ames Police Department.

Police say he was last seen near his apartment on Florida Street and Ontario Street in northwest Ames. Dooley is around six feet tall, has brown hair and a large Denver Bronco's tattoo on his arm.

"He has roommates and when we spoke to them, they have no idea where he's at either... it's an unusual case, it really is," said Commander Huff.

Police say his cell phone hasn't had any activity since that day. They added that from what they've heard from family and friends, Dooley may have just left on his own.

"We haven't found anything to believe that foul play is involved. The suspicious part is the two weeks," said Commander Huff.

Dooley's family told police they're extremely worried and just want to hear from him.

"That's all we want right now is to get in contact with him and make sure he's OK," said Commander Huff.

Ames Police said they're relying heavily on Facebook and help from the public to solve this case.  Anyone with any information about Dooley and his whereabouts are urged to call the Ames Police Department at (515) 239-5133 or anonymously through Story County Crime Stoppers.
