Police: Missing 16-year-old boy may have been swept into storm drain during heavy rain

NASHUA, N.H. (NECN/Kaitlin Flanigan) — Police in New Hampshire are asking for the public's help with finding a missing 16-year-old Nashua boy who may have been swept into a storm drain during heavy rains over the weekend.

Jacob Goulet was reported missing Saturday morning by his father, and Nashua police say officers responded to a call late Friday evening for a report of a person who may have fallen down a storm drain on the north side of Water Street. When officers went to the scene Friday evening, they found personal items that didn't have any personal information.

When his father reported him missing the next day, he reportedly told police this behavior wasn't normal for his son, and police connected some of the items found near the storm drain to Jacob based on his parents' description.

Police are currently searching parts of the Nashua and Merrimack rivers and the entire storm drain system nort of Water Street and south to Sawmill Drive.

Jacob, currently a student at Nashua North High School, is described as about 5-feet 8-inches tall, about 200 pounds, with a black mowhawk and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a denim vest with medal studs on it, a gray t-shirt, black shorts and black Converse All-Star sneakers.

Meanwhile, video surveillance viewed by Nashua police confirmed Jacob was on foot in the area during the storm Friday evening.

Authorities are expected to speak on this missing person case Sunday afternoon.

Anyone with information about Jacob's whereabouts is asked to call Nashua police at 603-594-3500.
