FAIRBANKS — Fairbanks police are asking for help locating a Fairbanks man whose mother has been looking for him for more than two months.

According to his mother, Robert L. Hughes, 43, of Fairbanks, left his home on Chena Hot Springs Road on Sept. 24 and has not been seen since, detective Scott Adams said.

Adams said Hughes’ mother contacted police about her son Nov. 10. Calls to the jail, hospital and Hughes’ friends have turned up nothing, Adams said.

Police don’t have much information with which to work.

Hughes’ mother believes Hughes was headed to the University of Alaska Fairbanks on Sept. 24 for some kind of class but did not know what kind of class it was or how he got there, Adams said. Hughes did not own or drive a vehicle, he said.

Police don’t know where Hughes worked, if anywhere.

A court records search shows a court summons was issued but returned unserved for Hughes in August for an alleged probation violation from a 2011 driving under the influence conviction. There is no listed warrant for Hughes’ arrest, Adams said.

Hughes is 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighs 165 pounds. He has blue eyes and dark brown hair. Police want anyone with information about his whereabouts to call 450-6500.
