Maine State Police announced Monday that its detectives have joined the investigation into the disappearance of a Franklin man.

Russell Burnett, 48, was last seen in February, according to Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland.

Burnett lived alone on Eastbrook Road, McCausland said. He was last seen walking on Eastbrook Road about half a mile from his home on the morning of Feb. 21.

The Franklin man was believed to have been wearing a gray baseball cap, a maroon sweatshirt, a green or grey Carhartt jacket, blue jeans and brown steel-toed work boots.

Members of the state police major crimes unit and the evidence response team searched Burnett’s home Monday for clues to his whereabouts.

The Hancock Sheriff’s Office and the Maine Warden Service have been involved in the case since Burnett was reported missing by a relative.

Anyone who might have seen Burnett or has information about where he might be is asked to call the major crimes unit in Bangor at 973-3700 and ask for Sgt. Darryl Peary.
