He is described as 6'1'', 220 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. He was last seen wearing a red shirt with black shorts.

If you have any information on Quade's whereabouts, please call the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office at 952-258-5321 or call 911.

A family distraught

Quade disappeared without a trace, leaving his friends and family completely puzzled.

Cell phone records tracked him in Medina Friday afternoon, but he stopped responding to calls and messages long before that.

His mother Mary Quade said, “I texted him several times on Friday early in the morning and throughout the day and he never got back to me."

The last Mary and Doug Quade saw of their son, he was walking out the door, supposedly on his way to work.

The 23-year-old hasn’t been seen since.

“We don’t know where he’s going because we can’t track the car, there’s no activity on the debit card,” said Doug Quade.

Robbie Quade was last photographed Friday morning at the Shell gas station in Edina.  

The 6'1" former football player, can be seen filling up his Lincoln Aviator wearing a red shirt and black shorts. That afternoon his cell phone was tracked twenty miles northwest in Medina. Since then, it’s been silent.

Dozens of family and friends are now gathering at his parent’s home in Osseo feeling worried and helpless.

Right now, their only hope is that the former Totino Grace student body president and recent St. John’s graduate will see this and call home.

“Go on Facebook, look at your messages, look at every single person who’s tried to reach out and touch you. Maybe you didn’t notice it, but there’s a lot of people that care very deeply about him and miss him as a person," said Quade’s friend Mitchell Engel.

He said it’s no questions asked and no judgement.

His mom and dad made a direct plea to their only son.

“There’s nothing that you could do that could us or any of us not want you here. Please. Come back,” said Doug Quade.
