Authorities are still on the lookout for a Wood River man who was reported missing this week by a family member. 63 year old Robert Lee Dickerson was reportedly spotted in Granite City walking along Route 3 on Monday morning and told a police officer he was headed to Cape Girardeau, Missouri. His family became concerned about his disappearance due to medical conditions.


Family members told Wood River police that Dickerson suffers from a mental handicap and also takes medications for diabetes and high cholesterol that may threaten his life if not taken. They also believe he could be taken advantage of, and has been in the past. Dickerson is a white male about five feet tall and weighing around 200 pounds, and was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes. Police departments in Missouri have been contacted to keep an eye out for the man.
