UPDATE: Priceville police say a search is underway for a man, 64-year-old Bertram Lakes Moore, after his family reported him missing when they hadn't heard from him in more than 24 hours.

Police say the man is a FedEx driver from out-of-state, and his FedEx truck is parked at the Pilot Travel Center. They don't know if he's in danger. He is diabetic, and police aren't sure if he had a medical incident walking from his truck.
