HADDAM — Middletown police say they are searching for 59-year-old Peter Recchia. Recchia was last seen Sunday afternoon in the area of Miller’s Pond State Park in Haddam.
Wednesday morning, State Police and Middletown Police were at the pond with canines searching in the woods. They have since cleared the scene.
Police were also asking if residents had any security camera footage. Detective Sergeant Will Porter of the Middletown Police Department said, “If you have cameras looking out at shops or Ring doorbell systems and it happens to be along the Foot Hills area, Durham, 147 in Middlefield or Route 17 in Middletown into Durham we are interested in any camera footage you may have.”
Officials said a cell phone signal pinged him near the area of Middlefield which is why they are conducting a search there.
Last seen near the area of Millers Pond State Park by eyewitness on Saturday around 4:30pm.
According to family members who spoke to police he is known to take long walks, and usually returns by nightfall but his daughter said he didn’t which started the missing person’s report.
Anyone with information to contact police immediately.
