Jay Sloop of Washington State, 77, went missing on May 14 following a customary morning walk he took in Kyiv's Podil district and was last seen at 7: a.m. near the entrance of Zamkova Hora Park, video feeds show.
He had been in Kyiv since May 8 on a medical mission for the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, for whom he works as a health care director at the church's regional headquarters in Spokane, Wash.
Posters of missing American physician Dr. Jay Sloop have been hung up throughout Kyiv.
When the Kyiv Post met with police search and rescue officers on May 20 in Zamkova Park, they said they hadn't ruled out criminal activity in Jay Sloop's bizarre disappearance.

A Coordinated Search Continues [cached]
Dr. Jay Sloop, UCC Health Ministries Director, has been missing since Tuesday morning, May 14, 2013.
SPOKANE, Wash., May 17, 2013 - Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the Sloop family as searchers continue to look for Dr. Jay Sloop.
The search continues to center on Zamkova Gora, a park in downtown Kiev where city surveillance cameras recorded Sloop entering the park Tuesday morning. He was not seen leaving by that entrance. Images from a private camera near the only other park entrance were finally obtained Thursday. After reviewing many hours of data, it was concluded Sloop did not exit that way either.
"While this information has helped to narrow the search, it does not make things easy," says Dr. Fred Hardinge, a colleague who was with Sloop in Kiev last week.
We are doing everything we can to provide all possible help and assistance in the search for Dr. Sloop."
In the wake of Sloop's disappearance, the U.S. Embassy in Kiev has asked that Adventists from around the world try to limit all unnecessary calls to the embassy. According to an embassy staffer, they've never had so many calls, and are amazed that a church could generate so many.
Sloop disappeared Tuesday while walking in Kiev, Ukraine where he had been serving on a mission trip with a team of health professionals for the past three weeks helping the local Adventist church set up a lifestyle center in Kiev. Sloop went for an early-morning walk by himself and did not arrive at the appointed time for breakfast.
