Local police seek missing Winthrop man
FARMINGTON - Local residents are being asked to be on the lookout for a Winthrop man missing over the weekend, who might have been dropped off on Main Street.
Winthrop police have been searching for Joshua Dutch, 33, since he apparently walked away from his Stanley Road residence early Saturday morning. Dutch, who was last seen late Friday evening, may have hitchhiked into the Farmington downtown area sometime over the weekend, according to Franklin County Sheriff's Department Cpl. Kenneth Charles.
According to Winthrop police, Dutch did not take personal belongings or his vehicle. Searches in that area conducted by local and state first responders over the weekend did not locate Dutch, and police believe he may have been in the Farmington area.
Anyone with information about Dutch or his whereabouts is being encouraged to call the Franklin County Sheriff's Department at 778-2680.
Dutch is described by police as being 5-foot, 9-inches tall, weighing 150 pounds with brown eyes, hair and mustache, although his head has been shaved. He was likely wearing blue jeans and black work boots.
