Rochester Hills police are asking for the public's assistance in locating Matthew Lyzen, 23, who was last seen Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014.

Matthew's mother says he went to the Rochester Fire and Ice Festival Friday night and has not been home since. Saturday he is known to have eaten at two restaurants, leaving a large tip at one of them, which his mother believes is out of character for him.

"That he spent 100 dollars in two restaurants in the same day - it feels like he was going somewhere. It feels like he was saying goodbye," Becky Lyzen says.

His mother also says he was diagnosed with severe depressive episodes in the past. She was able to keep a closer watch on him in those occasions, as he was still a minor.

"There needs to be legislation to change what they call 'a danger to oneself,'" she says.
