Have you seen this man? Missing 71-year-old man believed to be near Auburn


EAST ALABAMA (WRBL) — A 71-year-old man is missing from the east Alabama area.

John Knoll was driving a 2016 Black Nissan Altima with a missing front passenger side hubcap, and damaged front passenger mirror. Tag number: 11HK381.
