MELBOURNE, Florida – A missing New Jersey man may be in Melbourne, and the family is asking for your help in locating Henry Verdon.

Verdon, who hasn’t been since July 3, 2014, at the Toms River bus station, could be in Melbourne, Florida, according to Police Chief Karin T. DiMichele.

Verdon has schizophrenia, and the family is distraught right now. He is five feet, nine inches tall and weighs approximately 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing jeans and a black Harley-Davidson jacket.

“Henry has had a history of disappearing for weeks at a time, but he would always end up calling one of his family members,” Kelly Weber, a family member, told Palm Bay Daily.

“No matter what state he was in mentally his bouts of disappearing were habitual and almost routine,” Kelly added.

There are still unanswered questions as to where Verdon was headed to if he did, in fact, get on a bus.

“There has been talk that he headed to Melbourne, Florida where his (ex) girlfriend had a condo. He was not found at the condo,” Weber stated.

The family believes that someone may have seen Verdon, or knows something.

“Maybe he passed away, and they were unable to identify him? Maybe he was a victim of foul play,” Weber said. The family wants closure.

Anyone with information on Verdon’s location is asked to contact Detective Joseph Santoro of the Berkeley Township Police Department at 732-341-1132 x 120. Anonymous information can be left on the TIP line by calling 732-341-1132 x 611.
