FLETCHER — Authorities are seeking the public’s help in locating a missing Vermont man believed to be suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s disease.
John W. Larrabee, 69, more commonly known as Jack, was last seen at his Fletcher residence between noon and 1 p.m. on Oct. 29.
The alarm was raised the following morning when Larrabee was reported missing.
Larrabee is described as being between 6’1″ and 6’2″ in height, weighing around 180 pounds or less.
He is mostly bald with white hair, and sports a white beard.
At the time of his disappearance, he may have been wearing blue jeans with paint stains and a black sweatshirt.
Adding to the urgency of the situation, Larrabee is believed to be driving a white 2018 Nissan Kicks with the Vermont registration HHT402.
Given his medical condition, there are growing concerns that he may have become disoriented and lost.
State Police have extended their search and are particularly focusing on the areas in and around Franklin, Lamoille, and Chittenden Counties.
Authorities have provided a photo of Larrabee in hopes that members of the public might recognize him and provide crucial information leading to his safe return.
Anyone with information on Larrabee’s whereabouts is encouraged to immediately contact the State Police St. Albans Barracks at 802-524-5993.
