NJ - William Schmidbauer, 64, Manchester, 24 Sept 2007
Police are continuing the search for a 64-year-old Manchester man who is missing and may be in need of medication.
Police are asking the public's assistance in finding William Schmidbauer of the Cedar Glen West section, which is a senior community, Sgt. Anthony Cucchiara said. Schmidbauer is a Vietnam veteran, police said.
Schmidbauer's wife last saw him about 11:30 p.m. Saturday when she fell asleep, Cucchiara said. She believes that he was home early Sunday before she awoke because the morning paper had been brought inside their home, he said.
Schmidbauer was still missing at 4:30 p.m. Monday, and the Ocean County Black Sheep Squadron, a volunteer air patrol based at Miller Air Park in Berkeley, had joined the search Monday morning, police said.
He left home without essential medications, Cucchiara said.
Schmidbauer is described as a white male, about 6 feet 1 inch, 170 pounds with short brownish-gray hair and hazel eyes. He is believed to be wearing blue shorts, a brown T-shirt and black sandals. He has a 4-inch scar on his right thigh.
Police are asking that anyone with information about his whereabouts contact them at (732) 657-6111.
It's been 10 days since anyone has seen William Schmidbauer, 64, who mysteriously vanished from his home after going to bed in his residence on Sept. 22, police said.
His wife was the last person to see Schmidbauer at about 11:30 p.m. that night, according to police.
Township police are reporting no new developments in the missing person case that originated in the Cedar Glen West section of the township.

The area he was believed to have been seen in was on Route 70 between the intersection of Green Acres Road and Christ Lutheran Church.
The place he was last seen was about three miles from his house.
Family members and volunteers have posted fliers and handed out pictures, knocked on doors, and canvassed the woods.

William Schmidbauer served his country in the jungles of Vietnam, where he was wounded by shrapnel in a tank explosion.
The memories of combat continued for a long time afterward. More than a quarter of a century after he retired from a 20-year military career, Schmidbauer battled depression and seemed obsessed with the welfare of U.S. soldiers fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Then, one day in 2007, he would tell a neighbor he wanted to "end it all.'' Two days later, he vanished. There was no note and no body. There were no signs of suicide, homicide or misadventure. Whatever happened, Schmidbauer didn't leave a trace.

William Schmidbauer has been missing for eight years now.
"Search continues for N.J. veteran missing for 8 years"
Nearly eight years after a U.S. Army veteran went missing from his Manchester home, police say their investigation into the disappearance is ongoing.
On Sept. 23, 2007, 64-year-old William Schmidbauer – a retired 20-year veteran of the U.S. Army – vanished from his Cedar Glen West home without his medications, COPD inhaler, vehicle and keys, clothes, and money. He left no note before leaving home and investigators have found nothing suspicious about his disappearance, police said.
