KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine — Police are searching for two men reported missing late last week.
Zachary Wells, 21, of Vermont, and Prescott Wright, 23, of Massachusetts, were last seen socializing with friends at 5 Mills Road at about midnight Thursday, Dec. 20, according to a statement released Saturday by the Kennebunkport Police Department.
A dispatcher at the Kennebunkport Police Department said the status of the case was unchanged Sunday evening.
Police believe the two men left the residence together on foot and may have been intoxicated, according to the statement.
The Landing Boat School in Arundel, where the two men attend classes, reported the two missing to police as they did not attend classes Thursday or Friday.
The Coast Guard and Marine Patrol are assisting Kennebunkport police in searching for the two men.
“We currently have not had facts to support the men going into the water at this time,” Kennebunkport Police Chief Craig Sanford said in the statement. “Because of the residence being in close proximity to the water, we felt it prudent to ask for the search of that area.”
Sanford said Wells and Wright were expected to head to their home states for the holidays.
“Family members are very concerned for their safety,” he said.
Zachary Wells is a 5-foot-8-inch white male with black hair, hazel eyes and weighs about 150 pounds. He has a surgical scar on his neck. He had been living in Kennebunk.
Prescott Wright is a 6-foot-4-inch white male with brown hair, blue eyes and weighs about 200 pounds. He had been living at 5 Mills Road.
