Larry Odell Martin, 44, was reported missing to the Des Moines Police Department in Des Moines, Iowa, on Tuesday, December 15, 2009. He was last seen leaving a bar and grill with friends, wearing jeans and a black trench coat with a hood.

Martin is described as a 5-foot-11 black male weighing about 195 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety’s ‘Missing Person Information Clearinghouse’ (MPIC) classified his incident type as “Endangered / physical.” Endangered refers to a person of any age who is missing under circumstances indicating that his/her physical safety is in danger.

Martin’s name has since been removed from MPIC (the removal of a name does not necessarily mean the person has been located), though Martin remains listed as missing on the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs).
