UPDATE 1/30/19: Alben Marcus was located safe Tuesday night, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police. "Thank you for your assistance," police said. 

Charlotte Mecklenburg police are searching for a man who was last seen more than a week ago. 

Alben Marcus, 56, was last seen getting onto a CATS bus in the 200 block of Hawthorne Lane around 10:00 p.m. on Jan. 21. Marcus does not have any known friends or family in the Charlotte area. 

Marcus is approximately 6 feet 4 inches and thin, weighing about 130 pounds. Police say his posture could make him appear shorter, and he walks with a noticeable limp. He is balding and has gray hair with a scruffy white beard. 

He was last seen wearing a red toboggan, a black M&Ms race jacket, baggy blue pants and black shoes with white soles. 

Anyone with information on Marcus' whereabouts is asked to call 911 immediately.
