Howard County police are asking for the public’s help to locate a Columbia man who was last seen near his home Oct. 15 and may be in Baltimore City.
John Warren Hamilton III, 63, was reported missing to police on Oct. 22 when his case worker could not get in touch with him. Hamilton has a cognitive disability but is functional. Detectives learned that Hamilton frequents the Fells Point area of Baltimore City and they believe he travelled there from Columbia on or in the days following Oct. 15.
Police are concerned for his welfare because he has not returned to his home on Harpers Farm Road since then and has not been in contact with any acquaintances or friends.
Hamilton is described as a white male, 5-foot-7, 190 pounds with brown/gray hair and facial hair. Anyone with information should call 911.
