Henry Blackaby, a well-known pastor and author, has been reported missing in Atlanta.
Blackaby, the founder and president emeritus of Blackaby Ministries International was last seen leaving his home Thursday afternoon in the south Atlanta area. He was driving a black Lincoln sedan.
“We really have no idea where he is,” said Glenn Howe, an associate pastor at First Baptist Church in Jonesboro, Ga. “He left the house yesterday afternoon at 4 p.m. and there’s been no other contact with him.”
Blackaby, who is believed to be in his mid-70s was scheduled to speak next week at a religious conference in Hawaii.
A message marked “urgent” on the ministry’s website urged people to pray.
“If you are in the Atlanta area, please be on the lookout for Henry or his car along the roadside,” the statement read.
Howe said church members were gathering Friday for a prayer vigil while many others assist police in searching for the internationally-known minister.
“There are lot of eyes looking and lots of folks praying,” Howe told Fox News.
Blackaby has provided leadership training to thousands of pastors and laymen across the nation and spoken in more than 90 countries.
He is perhaps best known for his book, “Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God.” The book sold 7 million copies and was translated into more than 45 languages.
