DOVER, Del.- Police have found the car belonging to a senior airman who is missing from Dover Air Force Base. 

According to a press release issued by the United States Air Force, 21-year old Senior Airman Keifer Huhman, of the 436th Communications Squadron, did not report for duty on Monday, February 8th to the Dover Air Force Base. At that time, DAFB authorities initiated a missing person investigation. 

According to the Dover Police Department, Huhman was last seen leaving his apartment complex in Dover Sunday. He was driving his Ford Ranger truck. Delaware State Police found that truck at 10 p.m. the same day on the northbound shoulder of the Route 1 bridge.

At the time, police did not know it was Huhman's car. The connection was made later, according to police. 

Despite the discovery of the truck and its location, the Dover Police Department and DAFB Office of Special Investigations are continuing the investigation as a missing person’s case with assistance from the Delaware State Police and DNREC Police.

There were no witnesses who report seeing a man walking on the bridge at that time of night, according to Dover Police Public Information Office Mark Hoffman. 

Huhman's mother Darlene Norman told WBOC today that the family misses him and just wants to see him return home. 

"Keifer has been in the Air Force for four years," she said. "He is a happy-go-lucky kid, light-hearted, playful, and has a big heart." 

Norman said she has been meeting with all the law enforcement agencies involved to try to find Huhman. 

The family is organizing a search alongside DNREC Police and is calling for volunteers. It will happen Friday, Feb. 13 beginning at the parking lot on the north side of St. Georges Bridge at 8:30 a.m., according to information provided by the family. 

If you have any information on this case, you can call the Dover Police Department at 302-736-7130 or your local law enforcement agency.
