Friends of a Middleton man who has been missing since Sunday are asking for the public's help.

Christian Lepe was last seen running from his car, which is still parked at the Middleton Lakes Subdivision.

Wednesday afternoon, members of the search party took canoes into nearby waters to look for any clues.

Lepe hasn't had any contact with his family or friends, nor did he show up to pick up his daughter.

"His daughter is his world," said Michelle Lackman, a good friend of Christian's. "He would never not contact her or not show up to pick her up when he was supposed to on Sunday."

The 39-year-old is described as 5-foot-8, about 180 pounds with brown eyes and a shaved head.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to contact the Middleton Police Department by dialing (208) 585-0008.
