"I just want him to be around. I don't want to lose him."

It's been two weeks since an Osseo man went missing, but his parents are not giving up.

"You hate to think the worst, and I just can't go there yet. I just want him to be around. I don't want to lose him."

Doug Quade has been on a mission to find his son Robbie since August 3rd, the last time the 23-year old was spotted. It was at a gas station in Edina. Authorities have now told Robbie's parents that they got a "ping" from Robbie's cell phone later that day in Waverly.

That's why Doug and his wife went to Waverly Thursday, to put up flyers and hoping to find someone who may have seen Robbie or his vehicle - a dark blue 2004 Lincoln Aviator with Minnesota plate 826-TNG.

"That's why we're going that way. Maybe someone would be driving on some township road or something had seen it."

Doug says police are trying to help, but it's little comfort to a father concerned for his son.

"They help a lot, but there are a lot of road blocks. He's 23. They have to get subpoenas, and they have to get warrants."

Foul play is not suspected, and because Robbie is an adult, police are limited in what they can do.

Robbie Quade is white, 6'1", 220 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Doug says the last time he talked to his son, August 2nd, everything seemed fine. He's hoping he can get a message to Robbie.

"I'd tell him this is killing mom and dad and we want him home. We want to fix whatever is wrong."
