SUNDERLAND — Police are soliciting the public’s help in hopes of finding a 68-year-old man who was last seen Sunday night.

Searches for Geoffrey R. “Randy” Arthur on Monday and Tuesday were unsuccessful, and the Sunderland Police Department took to Facebook to share photos of him and a plea for assistance.

“We have struck out trying to find him,” Police Chief Erik Demetropoulos said. “His family is hoping to find him.”

Demetropoulos previously said Arthur’s neighbor called police out of concern shortly after 12:30 p.m. on Monday after not having spoken to the man since the previous night. Members of the Sunderland Police and Fire departments searched the woods along Route 47 and the adjacent portion of the Connecticut River, receiving help from the Massachusetts State Police Air Wing. Demetropoulos said the search was initiated Monday and it continued on a smaller scale Tuesday.

“We hope that people will see his picture and know that he is loved and that his family wants him back,” the chief said.

Anyone with information is asked to called the Sunderland Police Department at 413-665-7036, ext. 1.
