FRENCH SETTLEMENT - Police all over the state are looking for a former small town police chief who was reported missing Monday.

According to the post on the village's Facebook page, officers and Livingston Parish sheriff's deputies are looking for Brignac, who was last seen driving a 2009 white GMC truck. 


"We're very concerned," Mosby said, adding that he's been in in touch with State Police and a state police chief's association to ask for help in looking for Brignac. He said the search is exhaustive and very active.

On Wednesday, troopers put out a statewide silver alert asking for help locating Brignac, adding that he has a medical condition which requires daily medication. His truck was last seen Monday afternoon in the Vinton area.
