Cleveland Police are looking for Cory Barron who has not been seen since he attended a concert at Progressive Field Friday night.

''We checked the videos in the ball park and did not see him exiting but there were 40-thousand people in there,'' said Cleveland Police Commander Patrick Stephens

Cory Barron was last seen at Gate A at the Jason Aldean concert around 9:30 Friday night. His friend Oksana Tarasenko says Cory left one group of friends to see another group and has not been seen or heard from since.

Cleveland Police are now searching the river and Lake Erie with boats. The Cleveland FBI was called in to assist. They are searching near the bridges and in the brush near the stadium.

''A lot of people were there, they just figured they would meet him outside, he didn't answer his phone, they got worried -- realized he's not here anymore,'' Tarasenko said.

Friends of the missing man also searched for their missing friend all weekend on their own posting flyers with his picture on them.

"We started at the taste of Tremont and handed them out everywhere," said one friend.

Longtime childhood friend Kent Weaver said this is not like Cory. He just graduated from Bowling Green, has a job, and was loving life.

"I just want to know is he okay. I just want to know there is nothing wrong," said Weaver.

Cory's cell phone went dead during the concert so police only have a trace to Progressive Field.

Cory Barron is from Fremont, about an hour and a half West of Cleveland. He's 6'2, weighs 225 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He was last wearing jeans, a T-shirt and an American flag bandana on his head. His disappearance is out of his character.
