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.

The Setauket Presbyterian Church will hold its third annual family-friendly Christmas Eve manger service, with carols and blessing of animals, at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 24.

On the first Christmas Eve, it was the animals that made room in their stable for Mary and Joseph, the church said, in explanation of the manger service. According to the old carol, it was the donkey that carried a very pregnant Mary all the way to Bethlehem. It was the cow who gave the baby her manger, full of hay, for his bed; the sheep who gave wool to keep him warm; the doves who sang him to sleep. The world wasn’t that different then from the way it is now. On the afternoon of Christmas Eve, as the day gives way to night, this will be a time to gather and give thanks for the hospitality of the friendly beasts, the first to welcome the unknown baby to the world, and for the friendly beasts who warm our homes and our hearts today. In our uncertain world, they teach us everything we need to know about steadfast hope, unflagging patience and unconditional love.

Children from the Setauket Presbyterian Children’s Choir will sing “The Friendly Beasts,” in costume. Children of all ages, as well as animals of (almost) all sizes, are invited to come with their adult humans to the Setauket Presbyterian Church, 5 Caroline Ave. on the Village Green in Setauket, Thursday, Dec. 24, at 4:30 p.m.
