Elba, AL (WSFA) - An Elba businessman who went missing July 28 has been spotted in neighboring Mississippi. Pete Cash, 47, disappeared last Monday causing concern from family members and local authorities.

Now, Elba Police Chief Freddie Hanchey says his department has confirmed the sighting of a man matching Cash's description in Vicksburg, Mississippi was in fact Cash.

The missing Elba man apparently purchased a used 1998 pick-up truck in Vicksburg on the same day he was last seen in his home town, says Hanchey.

Two law enforcement officers, including one from the Elba Police Department assigned to the District Drug Task Force and a member of the District Attorney's office, were dispatched to the Mississippi town Monday. On Tuesday, the officers confirmed Mr. Cash paid cash for a 1998 Chevrolet S10 pick-up truck.

Authorities later located Mr. Cash's 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe. It was abandoned in a Vicksburg area parking lot. According to Chief Hanchey officers are filing paperwork with the state of Mississippi in order to return the truck to Elba.

At this time, officials do not know the exact location of Mr. Cash. He is described as 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs 195 pound and has brown hair and blue eyes.

The newly purchased pick-up truck is described as a 1998 Chevrolet S10, extended cab pick-up with a dark copper metallic over light pewter metallic paint job. The truck also featured a dark copper camp shell when Cash purchased it.

If you have any information that could help police locate Pete Cash call the Elba Police Department at (334)897-2555.
