EVERETT — An Everett man who is mentally ill now has been missing for a week.

The family of Todd Patrick Caudle, 49, is worried that he could be a danger to himself. They’re asking for the public’s help in finding him.

The family has been putting up fliers and looking for Caudle everywhere, said his brother, Ty Caudle.

“We’re all very concerned,” Ty Caudle said. “We just want to try to get him found.”

Everett police are investigating, said officer Aaron Snell, department spokesman. The case has been assigned to a detective, and police are following any leads that come in.

“We are doing everything,” Snell said. “He definitely is missing and needs to be found for his own safety and well-being.”

Todd Caudle lives with his mother and is not used to being away from home or the hospital. He was last seen June 27 in the 4800 block of Glenwood Avenue. He may have been upset about recent news about his medical condition.

“He’s never been missing,” Ty Caudle said. “He’s never disappeared. This is very not like him.”

The Caudle family has lived in Everett for a long time, and hope someone recognizes the man in the picture.

Todd Caudle is described as white, 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He has blue eyes and light-brown wavy hair. He was last seen wearing a tan sweatshirt with “Miami” written on the front, black jeans and black shoes.

If someone sees him, they should call police at 425-257-8450, Snell said. They should not approach him, as he is often wary of people.
