BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- Bellingham police are asking for the public's help in finding a missing 35-year-old man.

Police say Bradley Hale left his Bellingham home on October 1 in a "panicked state." The next day, he spoke to his wife via cell phone saying he was "lost in the woods."

His car was later found in a parking lot of a Shell station at North Lake Samish; police say his cell phone signal appeared to come from the area near the Plantation Rifle Range in Bellingham.

Since October 2, several searches of nearby forested areas have turned up empty.

Bradley Hale is described as 6 feet tall with a slim build. He has short brown hair and may have been wearing glasses. He reportedly was wearing a Carhartt jacket, blue jeans, black and white Adidas when he was last seen.

If you believe you have seen Bradley Hale, please call 911.
