Portland Police Searching for Missing Man

Portland Police are searching for a missing fisherman last seen at 4:30 this morning on Custom House Wharf. 66-year-old George Manning was last seen walking down Custom House Wharf toward the fishing vessel Northstar, which was docked at the end of the wharf. Police are concerned because Manning, who lives on the boat, left his cell phone and wallet on board and has not been in contact with fellow crew members.

Police divers from both Portland and South Portland have begun searching the harbor in the area of the fishing vessel because of the possibility that Manning might be in the water.

Manning is described as a white male, about 6'0" tall and weighing 175 pounds. He is balding with a shaved head and mustache. He was last wearing jeans, a tee shirt, and a blue and green Red Sox baseball cap with a shamrock logo. Anyone who has information regarding Mr. Manning’s whereabouts or recent activities is asked to call Portland Police at 207-874-8575
