— David Coon was last seen stepping out of this Lavant Lane home nearly four months ago.

The disappearance of the 42-year-old didn't initially strike his family members as odd. Coon was known to leave in the past and his wife assumed he had left her.

But as weeks grew into months without word from Coon, concerns about his safety mounted. A sister from New Mexico recently contacted authorities, touching off a missing person's investigation.

Now Glenville Police investigators are trying to track down his whereabouts during the time that has elapsed since he vanished. Lt. Stephen Janik said his department is working with state police to subpoena Coon's bank records to determine if any transactions were on his accounts.

"Right now, we're looking at it as a missing person who is endangered," he said Tuesday.

Coon was last seen by his step-daughter when he left the home on foot around 9 a.m. on May 21. Janik said Coon may have been despondent and had recently lost his job when he went missing.

"We're taking it very seriously because of the time frame," he said.

Coon was last seen wearing jeans and a t-shirt. He is Caucasian with black hair and hazel eyes, standing about 5'10” and weighing roughly 180 pounds.

Coon has relatives and connections in the Albuquerque N.M., area.
