MISSOULA- Authorities are looking for the public's help in finding an Oklahoma man who's gone missing while on his way to Glacier National Park.
Missoula County Sheriff's Department Public Information Officer Jason Johnson says Mark Bennett, 56, was last heard from on Aug. 16.
Authorities were able to trace Bennett's cellphone to the Saint Marys Lake area in the Mission Valley, and on Tuesday Lake County searchers set out to find him, but came up empty.
Police said he's driving a 2006 White Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with Oklahoma license plate 591EUA.
He's towing a 15-foot-long egg-shaped travel trailer and was accompanied by two dogs.
Bennett, who is on medication, was supposed to contact his brother to find out where to get his prescription re-filled, but Johnson says Bennett never made the call.
Anyone with information about Bennett's whereabouts is asked to contact their local law enforcement agency.
We'll have more information on this story as it becomes available.
Bennett, his truck and his dogs are pictured.
