MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The family of a 34-year-old man is asking for the public's help in finding him after he disappeared Saturday night.

James Tucker of Falling Waters, W.Va., was reported missing early Sunday after he failed to show up for work Saturday night at his family's gaming business in Hedgesville, W.Va., said his former wife, Christi Tucker.

Tucker's father found his son's car, a Pontiac convertible, off Wesel Boulevard behind Outback Steakhouse and Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar near Valley Mall in Hagerstown about 9 a.m., Tucker confirmed.

"He's not been heard from since about 8:30 Saturday evening," Sheriff W. Randy Smith said Tuesday.

Since receiving the report, Smith said investigators have been attempting to trace the man's routine. He declined to elaborate on the department's investigation.

Tucker said her marriage to James ended in a "friendly" divorce last month and she didn't know of any time in their 13-year relationship when he would abruptly leave.

"He's a very family-oriented guy," Tucker said.

Tucker said the last call placed from the man's mobile phone was at 8:14 p.m.

"He lives on his cell phone," she said.

Tucker is 5 feet 7 inches tall and about 190 pounds. He has blue eyes and blond highlights in his brown hair.

Anyone with information concerning Tucker's whereabouts may call Smith at the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department at 304-267-7000.
