Missing men from Kennebunkport
KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A search for two men who have been missing since last Thursday was temporarily put on hold Christmas Day.
Kennebunkport Police are asking for help locating 21-year-old Zachary Wells, and 23-year-old Prescott Wright.
Police say Wells and Wright were last seen at a home on 5 Mills Road in Kennebunkport around midnight Thursday socializing with friends. It is unknown when or how the two men left the home, and it is assumed they left together. Police say the two may have been intoxicated when last seen.
Police say they have found items of clothing on the rocks of a small island off of Cape Porpoise in Kennebunkport. They say one of the clothing items was marked in such a way that indicated that it belonged to one of the missing men.
The Maine Marine Patrol and Maine Warden Service are helping the Kennebunkport Police Department in the search.
Zachary Wells is described a white male, 5 feet 8 inches tall, black hair, hazel eyes, weighing approximately 150 lbs. He has a surgical scar on his neck.
Prescott Wright is described as a white male, 6 feet 4 inches tall, brown hair, blue eyes, weighing approximately 200 lbs.
Police say Wells and Wright are students at the Landing Boat School in Arundel, and they failed to attend classes on Thursday and Friday.
Police are investigating with the assistance of the Coast Guard and Marine Patrol checking the coastline searching for the missing men.
"We currently have no hard facts to support the men going into the water at this time," Kennebunkport Police Chief Craig Sanford said. "Because of the residence being in close proximity to the water, we felt it prudent to ask for the search of that area."
Police say there's no indication of foul play. The search for the two men was expected to resume Wednesday.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Kennebunkport Police Department at 207-967-2454.
