MT. VERNON, IL (KFVS) - The search continues for an Arkansas father, and husband who was last seen in the Mt. Vernon area.

Elizabeth Super says her husband Randall was positively identified by the postmaster in Sims, Illinois around 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Super says the postmaster saw Randall driving by really slowly in his maroon Ford pickup staring at the post office. Super thinks that her husband connected the post office with her because she is the postmaster in Cove, Arkansas.

She says that the oppressive heat is really hard on people with diabetes. Super hopes someone will spot her husband and get him to police or the hospital.

This all started on July 12. That's when police say 57-year-old Randall Super left his home in Cove, Arkansas en route to help his mother for a couple of weeks. She lives in the Cleveland, Ohio area.

Super's wife says she heard from her husband later in the evening on that Thursday, when he stopped for the night at the Thrifty Inn in Mt. Vernon.

"He did phone us on that night when he got to the hotel," said Elizabeth Super. "He left us a phone message that said, 'Hi this is Dad, I've made it to my destination everything is good I'm in Mt. Vernon. The trip was uneventful.'"

That next morning on Friday July 13 Super checked out of the Thrifty Inn and headed over to the Denny's restaurant for breakfast.

"He was seen on the restaurant's surveillance cameras going in having something to eat, going to the bathroom and then going back out to his truck shortly after 7:30 that morning," Elizabeth said.

But, that was the last time anyone saw Randall Super, and that previous evening was the last time anyone heard from him as well.

"I did try to call him on Friday afternoon around 2 o'clock when he should've been getting closer to the Cleveland area, but I got no answer."

Super stands 6' 2" tall, he weighs approximately 190 pounds. He has short cut brown hair and wears glasses. He's also a diabetic, and his wife says he did take his medicine with him.

Elizabeth says her husband is a very pattern prone individual and that this is not normal for Randall.

"This is so out of the ordinary. We just want people to pray for him and help him get back home. We don' know where to look, we just need people out there looking for us."

Randall was driving his 2000 Ford F-350 Super Cab maroon pickup truck with a maroon camper shell on the back. It has an Arkansas license plate number of 216JPE.

His wife says the last time his credit card was used is when he stopped in Matthews, Missouri to fill up with fuel.

"He's the father of four children. We've been married 28 years, and he's a wonderful man. He's a good man. We need him back home," Elizabeth said.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Randall Super, you're asked to call the police. He has been entered into the nationwide missing persons database.

The Mt. Vernon Police Department is investigating his disappearance.
