Lake Forest Man, 62, Reported Missing

Robert Jerry Attias has not been heard from since Oct. 16. His family is concerned for his well-being.

A Lake Forest man in need of medical attention has not been heard from since Oct. 16, authorities said Monday.

Robert Jerry Attias, 62, was reported missing by his family Oct. 20 after three days without hearing from him. His family last heard from him Oct. 16 when his sister spoke with him via telephone at about 10:30 p.m.

She told police Attias was feeling "despondent" as a result of recent issues with a longterm girlfriend. He needs medical attention, authorities said.

According to his website, Attias is a comedian and musician who goes by the moniker "The Rock 'n' Roll Kid." He is also a sculptor, according to the site.

The disappearance is "extremely out of character" for the 62-year-old, his family told police. He has never done anything similar before, they said.

Police are having difficulty tracking Attias because there has been no activity on his cellphone or bank account, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

Attias drives a gray 2012 four-door Honda Accord, license plate 6UGF043.

He is white, 5-foot-10, 190 pounds, has short gray hair and is balding on top. He has brown eyes and wears glasses.

Anyone who has seen Attias or his vehicle is asked to call the Orange County Sheriff's Department at 714-647-4578 or 714-628-7170.

We are hearing he had a heart attack. Could you tell us what happened to him?

So then how did he die and where was he found. If he did abuse your mother she should have left him a long time ago.

All I know is Robert was a talented man and a great guy. But I only knew him through Raymond Michael's shows. Laurie K

Kameron, through Raymond michaels Facebook
Laurie K November 08, 2012 at 09:51 PM
Pumpkin what were you telling Kameron about Raymond Michael's Facebook. Also Kameron your post was removed and I agree it was unappropriate.
kameron November 08, 2012 at 10:07 PM
I removed the post. You have no clue what you are talking about, Robert referred to the people at Raymond's shows as crazies, and obviously he was correct. Mind your business. He was in MY life for 22 years
kameron November 08, 2012 at 10:12 PM
O, how we all understand that someone who watches a Raymond Michael show knows how great the band members are? PLEASE! It is none of your business how or why Robert passed..
Laurie K November 09, 2012 at 03:09 AM
I know what Robert said. I only go to the shows because I am friends with Raymond for 25 years. Like I said before if he did abuse your mom she should have left him along time ago. Think how Raymond feels being he has been friends and worked with Robert since 1977. I am not only praying for Robert's family and Raymond but also your mom being she will have to live with knowledge that lead up to his death for the rest of her life. I will tell you this. Everyone who follows Raymond wants to know and it will come out eventually. Enough said.

Roberts family would like Robert to RIP. Leave him alone

Laurie K - Where does it say that he has passed. Confirm where he will be buried. Is there an autopsy? Where is he buried? I want to put flowers on the grave.
Joan Isidoro November 09, 2012 at 03:55 AM
If you know him so well..............
Laurie K November 09, 2012 at 05:12 AM
Like I said everything will eventually come out and when it does I will put flowers on his grave. AGAIN ENOUGH SAID
Joan Idsidoro November 09, 2012 at 07:35 PM
Laurie K~ So you're saying he's not buried as of yet? Is he in hiding? Suicides are treated like crime scenes - How do you know so much? Or are you just a little nutty "fan?"

Everyone let Robert rest in peace. He was a very private man. I loved him very much, for 22 years. He is my soul mate in life and death. Debra
kameron November 10, 2012 at 10:13 PM
Laurie K. My mother never called the police on Robert. She would never have done that.Like I said you need to mind your own business.

Who are all you freaks? I was with Robert from 1989 till Oct. 2012 he never mentioned a Laurie or Cyndie? Deborah
debra foley March 11, 2014 at 11:42 PM
I can't believe strangers can act like they knew someone just by watching them preform, it's really insulting!
