DULUTH, Minn. — A Duluth man who has amnesia has gone missing again.

Scott Tridgell left a note at his family’s home Dec. 13, saying he was going to a job interview, but he has not been in contact since.

Police tell the Star Tribune Wednesday that evidence has turned up that the 26-year-old was in west central Texas and then Southern California.

Three years ago, Tridgell was missing for three weeks before a couple spotted him sleeping in a pickup truck at a rest stop in Menomonie, Wis. He’d traveled to New York, Indiana, Georgia, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C.

Police say his amnesia limits his ability to recall details such as where he lives or where he’s been.

His parents had said previously he at one time suffered a serious head injury.
