A vulnerable adult remains missing despite a search of a rural area of northern St. Louis County on Wednesday.

The sheriff's office says 39-year-old Dustin Sundin walked away from an address along Leander Road, southwest of Cook, on Friday, Sept. 17. Sundin's aunt said he had walked away from her residence with her dog and cell phone, and that the dog later returned but Sundin did not.

The St. Louis County Rescue squad, K-9 team, and drone team partipated in a search by land and air on Wednesday.

Authorities say Sundin suffers from substance abuse issues and walks with a cane due to ataxia, a central nervous system disorder.

Sundin is 6 feet tall and weighs 140 pounds. He has several tattoos, including one on the left side of his face from above the eye extending down to his jaw and neck. He was last seen wearing black sweat pants with a grey stripe, white shoes, grey sweatshirt, grey backpack, and possibly a bluish/grey jacket with a hood. 

Police ask anyone who has seen or heard from Sundin to call 911 or St. Louis County dispatchers at 218-742-9825.
