BANGOR (WGME) — The family of a Maine man who has been missing since 2022 is now offering a $10,000 reward for his safe return.
Graham Lacher was last seen on June 6, 2022, when he left the Dorothea Dix Psychiatric Center in Bangor, where he was a patient.
Lacher has been diagnosed with autism and schizophrenia. Due to his diagnoses, his family says not to approach him and instead call police.
Lacher is 5-foot-11 and weighed around 190 pounds at the time he disappeared. He has long brown hair, a long beard, and blue eyes.
He was last seen wearing a gray jacket and gray or green Carhartt pants.
An orange hat that he had been wearing was located by a search volunteer, according to the Bangor Daily News.
Lacher’s mother, Tammy Lacher Scully of Belfast, says she believes her son has been seen but not recognized as a missing, vulnerable adult in need of medical attention.
“We continue to hope my son has survived,” says his mother, Tammy Lacher Scully of Belfast. “And with the coldest days of winter ahead of us, we are especially concerned about his safety,” Scully said in a statement.
His family originally offered a $3,500 reward for any information and now that offer is up to $10,000.
Anyone with information about Lacher’s whereabouts can contact the family via Facebook or call Bangor Police Dept. Det. Jordan Perry at (207) 947-7384.
