EAST PROVIDENCE — State and local public safety personnel continued the search for missing East Providence man Daniel Larue, spending several hours Friday, Jan. 17, in the Seekonk River off Bold Point in the center section of the city.

Representatives from the East Providence Police and Fire Departments, the Rhode Island State Police and Department of Environmental Management participated in the search for Mr. Larue, whose whereabouts have been unknown since Thursday, Jan. 2.

It’s the second time in the last two weeks that a  combined effort of local law enforcement and public safety personnel extended the investigation into the disappearance of the 20-year-old Rumford resident by scouring the Seekonk River.

They also attempted to do so on Wednesday, Jan. 8, but the severe weather of the day brought a quick end to the effort.

Neither East Providence Police or fire representatives offered a comment on the outcome of Friday’s effort.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Mr. Larue is asked to contact the East Providence Police Department immediately at 401-435-7600.
