The public’s help is being sought to locate Henry Fermino, a 61-year-old New Bedford man who has been missing since May.

Police said at about 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 7, members of the Southeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council Search and Rescue Unit conducted a large-scale search for Fermino in Dartmouth.The search was conducted in the wooded area located between Cross and Reed roads after Dartmouth detectives received credible information from New Bedford police that Fermino was likely in that area on May 11.

Fermino was not located in that search.

Dartmouth Police Chief Brian Levesque and department members urge anyone who frequents the wooded paths to remain on the lookout for him.

Anyone with information on Fermino’s whereabouts is encouraged to call either the New Bedford Police Department or the Dartmouth Police Department.
