The Huntington Police Department found the vehicle driven by a local man reported missing nearly two weeks ago but did not find any sign of the driver.

Ivan Dickens, a 34-year-old black male, was last seen Oct. 30 driving a friend's 1990 silver, 4-door Chevy Lumina with the license plate number CMF-1428. He was expected to be at work at the End Zone that day but never showed up.

A missing persons report was filed into a nationwide computer database so all law enforcement can be on the lookout.

The vehicle was found on Washington Avenue late Tuesday evening, said Ironton Police Detective Jim Akers. The side window was busted out, but there were no other signs of criminal activity or a struggle, he said.

Originally from North Carolina, Ivan has lived in Lawrence County for about three years and was staying in Franklin Furnace.

Dickens is described as a 5' 9" and weighing approximately 240 pounds. He has short cut black hair and brown eyes. He has a noticeable scar across his forehead, his wife Maria Taylor Dickens said.

He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a light gray polo-style shirt and white and gray Nike athletic shoes.
