HOLLAND -- Police are trying to find a Holland man who vanished last Friday.
The family of Steven Semer says picking up and leaving without telling anyone is very out of character for the 55-year-old.
He was last seen Friday, Sept. 14 driving a 2002 Burgundy 4-door Ford Escort. The car's license plate number is BEU2490.
Semer is a white male, weighs about 200 lbs., has brown balding hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information about Semer's disappearance should call Holland Police, Ottawa Co. Dispatch or Silent Observer.

Our community has lost a dear friend.
Steve Semer has passed away.
Steve was kind and compassionate. He was a sweet friend to me especially during Ari's coming out. After we sent what has become known as our "Coming Out Christmas Letter," we received a beautiful card from Steve thanking us for our embrace of Ari. I have kept that card and treasure it.
Steve was one who would focus on others. His burdens were not as obvious because he always seemed to be attending to what the other person was saying or experiencing. Today the words of Dietrich Bonhoeffer ring over and over in my head, "We must learn to regard people less in light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer."
Like so many of us on the Lakeshore, the loss of Steve causes me profound sadness. Steve left an imprint on my heart that will live on and which impacts the very person that I am.
Thank you to my friend, Steve Semer, for enriching my life and the lives of countless others. We will miss you.
Steve died in Fennville on September 14th. He had been reported missing for over a week. An investigation into his death is ongoing but it appears to be a suicide.
A public memorial service is being planned at this time. We expect it to take place within the next month.
