Roseville police search for missing man deemed at risk

The Roseville Police Department is searching for a west Roseville man who was last seen Sunday evening.

Brent Bell (pictured), 49, left his home near Woodcreek Golf Club about 6 p.m., riding his white Trek cruiser-style bicycle. His family hasn't seen or heard from him since, and he didn't go to work Monday. He reportedly has been depressed about personal issues and may have taken a handgun with him, according to a Police Department new release.

Bell's family is concerned that he may have ridden his bicycle to a remote area and harmed himself, police said.Brent Bell.jpg

Roseville police officers on Monday checked bike trails and open space areas with the assistance of a California Highway Patrol helicopter but were unable to locate Bell. The search continued today.

Bell is described as 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 215 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. He was last seen wearing a white Woodcreek All Stars T-shirt and blue jeans.

Anyone who has heard from him or has information regarding his whereabouts is asked to call the Roseville Police Department at (916) 774-5000.
