Police Search For Missing Boston Man

By Jim Armstrong, WBZ-TV

BOSTON (CBS) – The family of a missing Boston man is hoping someone who saw him last Saturday night can provide vital clues to his whereabouts.

Boston University graduate Eric Munsell was celebrating his 24th birthday on February 8th when he went missing. He and his friends were at Market Lounge on Broad Street, until he was kicked out around 11:30 p.m.

“He perhaps tripped on his way to the men’s room and was thrown out of the club by a bouncer,” explains his mother, Mary Lynn Mills. “He was asked to leave.” About ten minutes later, his friends noticed he didn’t return from the restroom. No one has seen him since.

Mills and her family have traveled to Boston from their home in Georgia as Boston Police search for the young General Electric engineer. His mother says Munsell is not the type of man to go this long without being in touch, especially if he thought people were worried about him.

“He’s the best son a mother could have,” she says. “He’s kind, gentle, considerate, smart.”

When the staff at Market Lounge asked Munsell to leave, according to his mother, they refused to let him get his coat. She’s hoping someone might remember a tall, thin man walking without his coat that night.

Police told the family they got a ping from Munsell’s cell phone about half an hour after he left the bar. It appeared he was headed in the direction of the harbor, and not towards his North End apartment.

Eric Munsell went missing in Boston.

Munsell is 6’1” and weighs around 160 pounds. The family says there has been no activity in any of his bank accounts since his disappearance. So they are left waiting to hear any piece of information from investigators, hoping for the best.

“I mean, you hear about it in the news, you see it play out, you see other people go through it,” explains Mills. “But the raw pain of what this is like, I would not wish on anyone.”
