(Baltimore) -- The family and employer of a Maryland man believed to have been on an Amtrak train that derailed in Philadelphia are trying to find him. 

An Ecolab spokesman says Bob Gildersleeve has worked there for 22 years and lives near Baltimore.

Spokesman Roman Blahoski says Ecolab is concerned about Gildersleeve's wellbeing and is involved in trying to locate him. 

Gildersleeve's family is in Philadelphia, circulating his photo and information about what he was wearing.

Bob Gildersleeve Sr. says his son had a ticket for the train that crashed Tuesday.

He says relatives have been unable to get information from Amtrak on his son's whereabouts. 

The younger Gildersleeve is married and has two children, ages 16 and 13.
