According to the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office, 50-year-old Robert Leo Biggs was last seen on Main Street in Chimney Rock Village, driving a burgundy 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon. He's known to friends and family as "Bob" and "Bobby."

Deputies described Biggs as 5'8" tall with short grey hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a burgundy sweatshirt and a baseball cap. He also has a tattoo of a dive helmet on his left leg.
