A Message For My Brother

By Mark E. Rolfe

About five years ago, my brother, Lee Allan Rolfe, was living with me when he disappeared on a Sunday morning. I never saw him again.

Missing: Lee Allan Rolfe

Missing: Lee Allan Rolfe

My brother does have a record, and law enforcement tracked him to Davenport where they found his car. There was another sighting in Arkansas, and then he was never seen again.

I have never stopped searching for him and need to know if he is still alive or gone. I want him to come home and face up to what he needs to do. I miss him, and want him to know it is okay to come home. I am going to be 64 years old this month, and though I have health issues, I wish to find him.

I’m sending out this message in hopes that he will see it and contact me, where we can get him back home where he belongs. Or, if you’re reading this message and know him or where he is, I’m asking that you please contact me at or 563-252-2866, or the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office at 563-245-1234 so we might be able to get in touch with him.

Thank you in advance.

Mark E. Rolfe
