Police are looking for a developmentally disabled man who they say disappeared after leaving his Alameda home to attend an Oakland flea market.

Police said Dante Marshall, 29, left at about 8:45 a.m. September 27 to attend the flea market but never returned home. His family reported him missing early the next morning.

They said Marshall has a history of going missing and has been found in places including San Francisco; Cloverdale; Dublin; Petaluma; Modesto; Stockton; Grass Valley; Fairfield; Monterey; and Reno, Nevada. They said he had recently inquired about traveling to San Jose and Los Angeles and that he is familiar with public transit and likes to travel by bus and rail.

Police said Marshall takes medication daily but that he does not have it with him. They said he likely does not have any identification with him and that he lacks a cell phone, and that he may tell people his name is Michael Hill.

They said law enforcement agencies in California and Nevada have been informed he is missing and have been provided with his description and a photograph.

Marshall is 5’10”, 340 lbs., with brown hair and brown eyes. He is African American. He was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt; blue, hooded jacket; blue jeans; and white and orange shoes.

Police are asking anyone who locates Marshall to dial 911 and inform their local police. If you have a tip regarding his whereabouts, Alameda police ask you to call them at 337-8340.
