DARTMOUTH — Dartmouth and New Bedford police are asking for the public's help in finding a New Bedford man missing since May after new information has come to light.

Henry Fermino, 61, is around 160 pounds with a medium build and hazel eyes, according to a post from the New Bedford Police Department in early June.

Police said members of the Southeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council Search and Rescue Unit conducted a large-scale search for him in Dartmouth yesterday morning after receiving information that he could be hiding in the woods.

At around 9 a.m. Wednesday, search and rescue combed the wooded area between Cross Road and Reed Road after detectives received credible information that Fermino was probably in that area on May 11.

Dartmouth Police Chief Brian Levesque and department members ask anyone who frequents the wooded paths in that area to remain on the lookout for him.

Anyone with information on Fermino's whereabouts should call either the New Bedford Police Department or the Dartmouth Police Department.
