    NJ - Matthew Genovese, 24, Hoboken, 23 January 2016

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Hoboken police are searching for a city resident who was reported missing during Saturday’s massive blizzard. I hope he's OK..

    Police described Genovese as a Caucasian/Italian man about 5 foot 3 inches and 150 pounds, with a slim and fit build, brown eyes and black, short hair.

    He was reportedly last seen wearing a gray Fordham t-shirt with maroon text, beneath a red/orange/grey flannel, and tan khaki pants with tan Timberland boots.

    Where is his home in relation to the pub? Was he under the influence? I see water nearby...
    I also think there should be lots of CCTV around that area - hopefully LE are checking that
    Where are you?

    A 24-year-old New Jersey man went missing Saturday night after visiting a pub with friends in Hoboken during the blizzard.

    Matthew Genovese was last seen leaving McSwiggan’s Pub at First Street and Bloomfield Avenue between 10:30 and 11:30 p.m.

    He told three friends at the bar that he was walking home, a 10-minute trek away, police said.

    He went missing as the blizzard hit Saturday night, although police said they don’t know if his disappearance is storm-related.

    As another poster said, it's eerily reminiscent of Andrew Jarzyk. It had pretty much stopped snowing by that point on Saturday, but the weather was still bad and a lot of snow had accumulated. I haven't seen anything as to what his home address is, so it's tough to guess which direction he headed in. And we don't know if he was intoxicated as he left the bar. But as others said, the water isn't too far at all and with the bad weather and wind, etc. who knows. He is also somewhat slight of build, could a plow or another vehicle hit him and be buried in the snow somewhere?

    Edit: He lives on Garden, 10 blocks or so from the bar. I've been to the bar a much of times, it's right in the middle of lot of places and usually a crowded area. Also really close to Pier A and the water. But the pier is the opposite direction of his apt. Wonder if any businesses or cameras in the park that were installed/fixed after Andrew captured him at any point.

    His friends say he walked home from the bar regularly.

    Somewhere along the 10-block stretch between the pub, located at First Street and Bloomfield Avenue, and Genovese's uptown apartment on Garden Street, police and friends say something happened that kept him from getting home, and he hasn't been seen since.

    Danny Massa, 25, of the Bronx, the boyfriend of Genovese's sister, said in a brief interview on Tuesday morning that he and others had been searching for Genovese without any sign of him. Hurrying off the phone, he said, "We're going out to look for him now."

    I live in Jersey City right next to Hoboken which I can see from my window. I know by Saturday night the snow was less but it was a real mess and I think most places were deserted. The Hudson River is right there. I will definitely keep my eyes open around here. I have a feeling he is buried in the snow somewhere or in the River.

    There's no official word on ID, but it doesn't look good. There is also a JC man who has been missing as well. <modsnip>
