30-year-old Hamtramck man missing since party leaving family heartbroken

- A 30-year-old Hamtramck man disappeared without a trace and now his family hopes the public can help bring him home safely.

"Please help us. Somebody out there - you have to know something," Larry Kudla said.

The desperation to find his son was painfully evident in the eyes of Larry.

"I feel like right now a part of my life is missing. I'm missing something, and I don't know how to describe the despair and distraught right now," he said.

Larry says his 30-year-old son, Jason Kudla, hasn't been seen or heard from in three days. It's a familiar and fearful feeling for this father.

"It breaks my heart. He's my last remaining son. Jason had a twin brother that took his life in 2012," Larry said.

Larry says Jason had been at a small party at a home on Evaline and Conant. Everyone was drinking and the party went into the early hours of Sunday morning.

Witnesses say then Kudla suddenly became upset, breaking a few things and saying he had to get out of there.

"He had gone downstairs, grabbed a pack of cigarettes and his cell phone and bolted out the door," Larry said.

Larry says his son is usually attached to his cell phone and always on social media, but Jason hasn't been heard from in any way. He hasn't even shown up to his job at a licensing company in Troy.

"It's common for people to say hope for the best, which we are, but prepare for the worst, but how can I prepare for the loss of my son?" Larry said.

Jason is described as about 6'0" and 170 lbs. It is not known what he would be wearing, but he has two Detroit tattoos - one of them being in memory of his brother.

"You're our last son. We need you," Larry said.

While he lives in Hamtramck, Kudla is known to frequent downtown Detroit and Warren. He's described as outgoing and lovable.

His family just wants to see his smiling face and to know he's safe.

"Jason, please come home, and if anybody else knows where he's at or has him, deliver him to us. No questions asked, we just want our son back," Larry said.

If anyone has any information, please contact the Hamtramck Police Department front desk/dispatch at 313-800-5281.
