NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police are looking for a Mississippi man who was last seen on Mardi Gras, on Bourbon Street.

Police spokesman Aaron Looney says 57-year-old Johnny Gatlin is from Purvis, Mississippi.

A news release Friday says he’s described as 5-foot-8, with a medium build. A photograph shows that he’s black, with a closely-trimmed mustache and goatee. Police say he was wearing a green camouflage jacket, blue jeans and white baseball cap when last seen about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday on the 700 block of Bourbon Street.

Looney says police hadn’t received any leads as of early Friday afternoon.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact Eighth District detectives at 504-658-6080.
