Wilmington police are seeking the public’s help in obtaining any information on the disappearance of a city man who has been missing now for more than a year.
Jamir Richardson, 31, was last seen May 14, 2012, in the 1100 block of E. Seventh St.
Family members, who are looking for closure in the missing-persons case, said Richardson was depressed at the time of his disappearance and had sent text messages to members of his family indicating that he was suicidal, Cpl. Jamaine Crawford said.
About the same time that he was reported missing, witnesses reported that someone was seen jumping into the Christina River. Emergency workers combed the river looking for the person but failed to find anyone.
Investigators have pursued several leads in the past year without success, said Crawford, who added the investigation is ongoing.
When he was last seen, Richardson was wearing an orange shirt and blue denim pants. He is described as being 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 195 pounds.
Anyone with any information on Richardson’s whereabouts is urged to call Detective Anthony Roundtree at 576-3650, the Wilmington Police Confidential Tip Line at 576-3990 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800)TIP-3333. Tips also may be submitted online at: www.tipsubmit.com.
