TALLADEGA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

The family of a missing Georgia man last seen at the Talladega Superspeedway is asking for the public's help.

Nicholas Bower, 27 of Villa Rica, Ga., was last seen around 11 p.m. May 4. His family, friends and law enforcement appeared together Wednesday at a press conference to ask the public for help in finding Bower.

Bower's girlfriend Jennifer Boesch says they were camping in the South Park area of the Superspeedway. Boesch says she last saw Bower around 11 p.m. and that she woke up around 12:30 a.m. and couldn't find him.

His family says it's just not like Bower to disappear without a trace.

"He just disappeared without a trace and it is not characteristic of him at all. He is very close to his family and he would've contacted somebody," Bridgette Chambers, Bower's sister, said.

Bower is described as a white male, 6'4" and 185 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the word "Fastenal" on the front and a black "Fastenal" hat with a mesh back. He works for the company "Fastenal" in Atlanta, GA. Officials say Bower could have also been wearing a gray North Face jacket.

Anyone with information about his location is asked to call the Talladega County Sheriff's Office at 256-362-6117.
