Authorities are searching for a 22-year-old Fargo woman with disabilities who hasn't been seen since Saturday.

Fargo police released a missing person alert Monday evening for Gail Lynn Erickson, 1211 43½ St. S.W.

Lt. Tod Dahle said she may be traveling with an acquaintance, David J. Sukup, whose last known address is Jamestown, N.D. It is unknown whether Erickson is being held against her will, Dahle said.

Erickson is described as a "vulnerable adult" who functions emotionally at the level of a 6-year-old, Dahle said.

She was last seen about 5 p.m. Saturday walking from a friend's apartment building not far from her 43½ Street residence, Dahle said. Family members reported her missing shortly before 11 a.m. Sunday.

She was last seen wearing a pair of blue wind pants with a yellow stripe down the side, a heavy Green Bay Packers jacket and slip-on sneakers, Dahle said. She is 5 feet, 10 inches, 137 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes.

On Jan. 6, Erickson went to Jamestown with Sukup. Her mom, Sandy Erickson, called Jamestown police about 8 p.m. that day to request a welfare check, said Jamestown Sgt. Troy Pfaff.

Officers found Erickson at a trailer park with Sukup. At her mother's request, the officers convinced Erickson to stay with her sister, Pfaff said.

Sukup is 5 feet, 11 inches tall, weighs 200 pounds and has black hair and hazel eyes. He may be driving a light blue 1985 Oldsmobile with North Dakota plates, HBC 527.

Pfaff said Sukup lives near Cleveland, N.D. Sukup has no arrest record in Fargo or Jamestown, authorities said.

Sandy Erickson could not be reached for comment Monday night.
