The Quakertown Police Department is asking for the public’s help in solving a cold case involving the disappearance of a borough resident more than a decade ago.
On Wednesday, police posted on their Crimewatch site that they are seeking information concerning the disappearance of Thomas Esbensen, who was last seen leaving his residence at 317 Heller Road on Dec. 27, 2008.
Esbensen, who was 41 when he vanished in 2008 according to public records, is described as a white male, 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds, with blue eyes and blond or strawberry blond hair.
Police did not describe the circumstances under which Esbensen disappeared, or explain why the case is being reopened at this time.
His is the second case involving a missing person to recently receive attention from Upper Bucks County authorities.
In January, Pennsylvania State Police at Dublin announced they were seeking information about the whereabouts of Avery Moorhead Berry, who disappeared from her home at 1395 Oak Lane, Quakertown (Springfield Township) on Jan. 19.
Anyone with information about Thomas Esbensen’s whereabouts is asked to contact Quakertown Police detectives at 215-536-5002 or the National Missing & Unidentified Persons System at 855-626-7600 (NamUs #56320).
