Two of the men were last seen wearing white T-shirts and jeans, police said. Another wore a black T-shirt, black shorts, black socks and black slippers. The fourth wore a black T-shirt and jeans, according to police. All of the men wore face masks.

One of the men has a tattoo on his left forearm of a name beginning with the letter “F,” police said.
