COLUMBUS -- The FBI says an Ohio man missing since Nov. 13 could be linked to a deadly robbery scheme in which police say two other men were lured with bogus Craigslist help-wanted ads.
Investigators say 47-year-old Timothy Kern of Massillon was last seen Nov. 13 after telling family he was meeting with a prospective employer.
One Florida man was found dead in southeastern Ohio's Noble County last week and another said he escaped after being shot on Nov. 6.

Police say they had replied to bogus Craigslist job ads.
Two people have been arrested.
The FBI says it's unusual for Kern to be out of daily contact with his family.

It says without providing details that Kern's disappearance could be linked to the case. Agents won't say whether he answered a Craigslist ad.

Police have not released the identity of the Florida man killed.
