The Jamestown Police Department is still seeking information regarding a city man who went missing last week.

The whereabouts of 35-year-old Sean M. Carpenter are still unknown after he was last seen walking Wednesday around 1:45 a.m. near Pine and First streets. He was reportedly headed home near Superior Street but has not been seen or heard of since.

Friends of Carpenter organized a search Friday morning but turned up nothing. Police say the Chadakoin River was lowered as part of ongoing search efforts though the city man as of Saturday night was still missing.

The incident is being treated as “suspicious.”

Capt. Robert Samuelson of the Jamestown Police Department asked that tips be reported to the police department and not on social media.

“People who put information over social media to the world only hinder our investigation,” Samuelson said. “Certain information must be for our investigation and not for everyone to see.

“At this point we still don’t know where Sean may be and all tips should come to the police,” he continued.

Carpenter is described as being 6-feet, 2-inches tall and weighing 180 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes, and was last seen wearing a brown baseball hat, green jacket and gray and red sneakers.

Police said Thursday they were interviewing friends and family of Carpenter, who has never gone missing before.

“We are in the process of interviewing family members and friends who may have been in contact with him. We do not know if foul play is involved or if he may have left the area on his own accord,” Swanson said Thursday. “However, the circumstances are suspicious and current whereabouts are not known.”

Anyone with information is asked to call JPD at 483-7537, or leave an anonymous tip at 483-TIPS (8477). Information can also be sent through the department’s 411 cellphone app.
