WAKE FOREST, N.C. -

The Federal and State Bureaus of Investigation are assisting the Wake Forest Police Department in the disappearance of a 63-year-old man.

Frank Arthur Janssen, of 1401 Sky Hill Place, was last seen when he returned home from a bike ride around 9 a.m. on April 5, police said.

Janssen's wife said he was not home when she returned from shopping that same day. Police said she became concerned when she saw what appeared to be drops of blood outside of the home.

Wake Forest police enlisted the help of the FBI and SBI Tuesday.

"It is standard law enforcement practice to enlist the expertise and resources of law enforcement partners as needed in investigative matters," said Bill Crabtree, spokesman for the town of Wake Forest.

Police said Janssen works in Washington, D.C., during the week but officers do not believe his disappearance is related to his work.

Janssen requires medication for a medical condition, police said.

Police described Janssen as a white male, standing 5-foot-9 and weighing 175 pounds. He has gray hair and brown eyes.

Wake Forest police ask anyone who may have seen Janssen April 5 to the department at (919) 554-6150.
