AVON (CBS) – Massachusetts State Police are trying to identify two men involved in the suspicious disappearance of a 37-year-old man.

Officials say James Robertson was last seen getting into a silver Toyota Camry on January 1 around 12:50 p.m. in Avon.

Robertson’s father David told WBZ-TV that the men showed up at the family’s home on Spring Street claiming to be constables. They were carrying handguns, and they displayed law enforcement badges. David Robertson said his son was living at their home because he is currently going through a divorce.

The men told James Robertson that they were taking him to Dedham for surprise probation-related drug testing, and would bring him home afterward.

David Robertson says he realized later that the visit did not make sense. He called police around 11 p.m. that night looking for help finding his son.

Relatives learned the following day that the probation department had not sent anyone to the house.

On Friday, State Police released sketches of the two men believed to be involved.

One of the men is believed to be white, about 5’10” tall with a stocky build. He appeared to be in his late 50s with salt and pepper hair.

The other man was described as being white, about 6’0” tall with a thin build. He looked about 50 years old and had light brown hair.

The Toyota Camry they were driving was a model year between 2001 and 2007.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
