CARTHAGE — Over the past week, flyers have gone up throughout the villages of Carthage and West Carthage seeking information about a missing man.
Zachary Montgomery, 31, described as a nearly 6 foot tall Caucasian male with blue eyes and balding with light brown hair, wearing wire framed glasses and a beard, shorts, boots and a T-shirt, was last seen April 21 at about 10 a.m. on South Mechanic Street, heading toward State Street.
According to his cousin, Joseph Johnson, Mr. Montgomery, who lives with his mother on South Mechanic, normally sticks close to home, playing Xbox or card with friends and caring for his mother. Mr. Johnson also noted Mr. Montgomery is legally blind and cannot see much without his glasses.
Mr. Johnson said they have contacted friends and police have contacted area hospitals to no avail.
According to Mr. Johnson of Watertown reports of sighting in the city have not been validated and that his father has searched the Lake Bonaparte area.
Carthage police said they have also searched vacant homes in the area.
A group of friends and community members conducted a search Sunday throughout the village and surrounding areas but according to Mr. Johnson, found nothing.
Anyone who has any information about Mr. Montgomery should contact Mr. Johnson at 315-842-2281 or call the local police.
