Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department and family members of a missing man are asking for the public’s assistance in locating Robert Alan Korda, 54, of Van Nuys.

Korda is described as a white male with grey hair and brown eyes.  He was wearing glasses and a goatee.  He stands 5 feet 5 inches and weighs approximately 135 pounds.  It is unknown what type of clothing Korda was wearing.
