Update: Police reported on the evening of Dec. 30 that Cody Lee Miller had been located and was unharmed.
A Northport man’s family has not seen him since the day before Christmas Eve and is looking for the public’s help to find him.
The Suffolk County Police Department said on Wednesday that the family last saw 24-year-old Cody Lee Miller at his house at 8 a.m. on Dec. 23 with a black, oversized backpack.
According to the family’s Facebook page “Help find Cody,” the young man left abruptly. “No argument before he left, nothing of that nature.” It’s possible he has a toiletries and a change of clothes with him, the page said, but he didn’t bring a sleeping bag or any technological items with him.
“He did not mention any part of leaving to any friends/family member,” the page said. “We have no explanations for his leaving, are unable to track him, and need your help to find him.”
The family reported him missing last week.
Miller is white, 6 feet 1 inch tall and about 145 pounds, according to the SCPD. He has dark blonde hair and hazel eyes, and was last seen in blue jeans, a black hoodie and black sneakers.
Police said the family believes he could still be on Long Island but might have gone into New York City.
Anyone with information about the young man’s whereabouts is asked to dial 911 or to call detectives from the SCPD’s 4th Squad, who are investigating the missing person case, at 631-854-8452.
