Montville man missing since 1984 — police still looking for the public’s help
MONTVILLE — Authorities are seeking leads from the public on a case that's gone unsolved for more than three decades.
According to a news release from the Morris County Prosecutor's Office, Thursday marks 33 years since the disappearance of lifelong Montville resident Edward DuBarry.
DuBarry, in his mid-30s at the time, was last seen that day in the area of his home. A week later, his vehicle — a 1974 white Chevrolet pick-up — was discovered on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware Water Gap.
The prosecutor's office, the township police department and the DuBarry family continue to look for answers.
"This is our oldest case that we have," Montville Police Captain Andrew Caggiano told New Jersey 101.5. "We generally don't have missing persons cases that go unsolved like this."
Tips have come in over the years, Caggiano said, but none that can truly jumpstart the investigation.
"We will follow up on every lead that comes in," Caggiano said. "It's been 33 years, and it's been 33 long years for his family."
An investigation into DuBarry's disappearance revealed that his credit card was used three times on Sept. 7, 1984 — once at a Howard Johnson Hotel in New York — and again on Sept. 11, 1984.
DuBarry has a scar on his chin, right elbow and numerous scars on his fingers, according to the prosecutor's office. He also has upper dentures.
