Outdoor Search Continues for David Bird

Long Hill Police announced on their Facebook page they are resuming their outdoor search for David Bird.

The 55-year-old man left his Millington home during the afternoon of Jan. 11 to go for a walk and did not return. His disappearance launched an intensive search in the woods as well as bodies of water including the Passaic River and along railroad tracks near his home. Winter weather, however, stopped that aspect of the search.

“During the winter months and extreme weather the investigatory portion of the investigation had continued,” reads the post. “All leads were followed up on and unfortunately there has been no confirmed information that would assist with locating David Bird.”

The New Jersey Search and Rescue Group will be helping with searches of the Hicks Tract “and other areas Mr. Bird had been know to frequent.”

Police say they have no new leads in the case or any other information that would lead them to speculate why Bird may have gone missing. There was speculation about his credit card being used in Mexico and his disappearance being tied to his coverage of OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) for the Wall Street Journal that did not pan out.

Bird’s wife Nancy expressed her thanks for their efforts in the comment section of the post.

“Praying for your safety as you search, the wisdom to look in places that haven’t been searched before, the courage to look somewhere you don’t want to and the strength to be out there everyday until David is found,” his wife said.

Anyone with information about Bird’s disappearance should contact Long Hill Township Police Department at 908-647-1800.
