OSAGE BEACH - A Midwest bank robber has been on the loose for more than 10 weeks, and as a result the FBI began posting his picture on billboards in eight different towns and cities in Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma on Friday. The Fake Beard Bandit has committed seven different bank robberies, most recently on August 3 in Olathe, Kansas.

The FBI is using Lamar Advertising's billboards to post the robber's wanted picture in the tri-state area. Lamar Advertising will post the robber's picture on 40-45 billboards throughout the state of Missouri alone.

The FBI is planning to have the Fake Beard Bandit's picture on billboards for the next two weeks, or until he's caught.
