A search for a missing person is underway in Burnsville.

Keith Cilla-Saxowsky, 34 of Farmington, hasn’t been seen since Oct. 1 when surveillance cameras captured him running on a trail in a wooded area, according to the Burnsville Police Department.

The footage shows Cilla-Saxowsky in the area of the 15700 block of James Avenue around 8:18 a.m., authorities say.

“The Burnsville Police Department is asking residents in this area to check their property for any information that might help investigators,” police said in a press release Monday.

Police say Cilla-Saxowsky is white with brown hair and blue eyes. He stands 5’5” and weighs approximately 140 pounds. He was last seen wearing a long-sleeve gray shirt, blue jeans and white shoes.

Cilla-Saxowsky’s white Chevy Tahoe was towed from James Ave. on Oct. 4 after it was reported as an abandoned vehicle, according to Burnsville Police Capt. Chris Wicklund.

Police learned Cilla-Soxwosky was missing on Oct. 10.

Family and local law enforcement searched the area where he was last seen — walking trails located on private property and along an abandoned railroad track.

The Eagan Police Department helped search by drone the evening of Oct. 10, and the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office searched by drone and ATV the next day.

Dive teams haven’t been used in the search, Wicklund said Monday, but two ponds south of the area were searched by drone and the perimeter searched by foot and dogs.

Foul play is not suspected at this time, he confirmed.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 to contact Detective Jeffrey Klingfus at the Burnsville Police Department at 952-895-4635.
