The Tangipahoa Sheriff’s Office is looking for a missing Loranger man whose vehicle was discovered near Bourbon Street in New Orleans.

Jack Bartley Jr., 48, has been missing since Tuesday, according to a news release issued by the Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators have found the black Jeep Wrangler he was last known to be driving, but Bartley has not made any contact with family or coworkers since his disappearance.

Detective Mike Moore said deputies aren’t sure if the missing man is in danger. However, people who know Bartley said it is very uncharacteristic for him to sever contact, Moore added. Barley works on a ranch in Tangipahoa Parish and the detective said his employer is also concerned for him.

Anyone with information on his disappearance may call Crime Stoppers at (800) 554-5245.
