Jay Ralko, 22, disappeared on Dec. 10 after he left behind a note for his roommate indicating there was an emergency, reported the Detroit Free Press.

Since his disappearance, there has been “no record on his phone, no record on his bank statements, no record on his Blue Cross Card,” said Ralko’s mother, Sherri Amorello.

The note Jay left behind asked his roommate to take his dog out. “Won’t be here tonight, an emergency,” the note says, according Amorello, adding that Ralko rarely leaves his dog Xena behind.

Amorello said her son is bipolar and suffers from depression, but was on medication at the time of his disappearance.

Ralko is 5 ft. tall, 120 lbs., and drives a charcoal gray Ford Escape, license plate number CJK 7951. Anyone with information is asked to call Warren Police at 586-574-4700 or Equality Michigan at 313-466-4345.
