(ABC 6 NEWS) -- The Minnesota State Patrol used a helicopter Friday in the search for a Plainview man who has been missing for nearly a week.

43-year-old Melvin Peterson was last seen leaving a friend's house in Alma, WI Sunday. The State Patrol used the helicopter to follow the route Peterson would've taken from that house to his own home in Plainview. Nothing was found.

Peterson was last driving a 2008 Chevy Aveo. Authorities say they've gotten few leads. Contact police if you have any information.
