BOYLSTON ó Boylston Police have released a description of a man they say went missing Sunday, Jan. 18. Police Chief Anthony Sahagian said Sean M. Collins, 42, of East Temple Street, was last seen after ordering a meal at the Other Place Pub during the Patriots' game on Jan. 18. At some point after ordering his meal, but before the meal arrived, the male left the pub.
He was last seen by witnesses behind the pub, heading toward East Temple Street, through a small patch of grass. The man's wallet and hat were found on Tuesday morning, Jan. 20, in that same area. Both were wet, indicating they may have been dropped Sunday, during the heavy rains.
The man had been staying on East Temple Street for about two weeks, Sahagian said. Police and a relative tried to reach the male, but it appears his cell phone has been turned off. His television was found on, and there was no signs of a struggle or any other problem in the apartment, Sahagian said. On Tuesday night, a regional be-on-the-lookout was issued to other police departments. The area was searched on foot, with canine units and, on Wednesday, by the Mass. State Police Air Wing unit. Sahagian said his officers returned to the scene on Wednesday and Thursday for another foot search.
"Despite extensive ground searches, use of a Worcester County Sheriff's Department bloodhound and a helicopter over-flight/search by the Mass. State Police Air Wing, Mr. Collins remains unaccounted for," a press release from the police department states.
