WAKEFIELD - Wakefield and State Police along with volunteers are expected to resume their search today for a Wakefield man who has been missing more than a week.
Wakefield Police Sgt. Mike Fenton told The Rochester Voice late Saturday afternoon that he'd spent the bulk of the day searching for 22-year-old Jacob Toussaint.
Fenton said the area of the search has been in woods off Old Stage Road, but requested that we not disclose the exact area or publish the nearest street address.
He also noted that they were aware of disturbing posts on Toussaint's Facebook page.
Jacob Toussaint, also known as Jacob Toussaint Gahn, was last seen on March 7. He is described as 5'9'' and 145 pounds and was last seen wearing a black hoody and pants.
Wakefield police said an extensive search for Toussaint was ongoing and would likely continue for the next couple of days. He was last seen in the area of Old Stage Road.
Toussaint is from Wakefield and attended the Bud Carlson Academy, according to his Facebook page.
Wakefield Police and the State Police Major Crimes Unit are both investigating the case, Fenton said.
Toussaint was listed as a Portsmouth resident in a June Rochester Police arrest log, but Fenton said he is currently a Wakefield resident.
Anyone with information is urged to call Wakefield Police at 603.539.2284.
