Elmira city police said Tuesday they are looking for Vincent T. Little,
a 47-year-old Elmira man who has been missing for nearly three weeks.
He's the second man reported missing in the Elmira area in less than two months. Randy Nichols, 48, of Elmira Heights disappeared Sept. 1.
Elmira police described Little as white, 6 feet tall and weighing 250 pounds, with brown hair and eyes, a fair complexion and scars on the left side of his neck and both wrists.
Police believe Little was wearing blue checkered pajama bottoms, a dark blue pajama top, a dark green winter coat with black trim, brown corduroy slippers and wire-rimmed prescription eyeglasses when he disappeared Oct. 6. He's believed to have been carrying a brown bi-fold wallet containing cash, according to a news release from police.
Little left his home on North Main Street around 3 a.m. and has not been seen or heard from since, police said.
They said he had a history of leaving home for extended periods of time, but they said he always called family members to notify them he was all right. This time, he had not contacted relatives as of Tuesday afternoon, they said.
Nichols, the Elmira Heights man, was reported missing at 9:40 a.m. Sept. 1, police in Elmira Heights reported.
They said he was last seen around 3 p.m. Aug. 31 when he left his home on College Avenue and headed for his mother's apartment at Villa Serene Apartments, about eight blocks east on 14th Street.
Police said a resident notified them that Nichols was seen walking south of the Main Street bridge around 4 p.m. Aug. 31, apparently looked normal. On Oct. 12, New York State Police searched along the Chemung River by helicopter but found no sign of Nichols.
No new information about Nichols has been released since then.
Police described Nichols as white, 5-foot-6, 160 pounds, with white hair and bad teeth. He has a tattoo of a dog on one arm and another tattoo with the name "Carlene," police said.* Police ask anyone with information about Little's whereabouts to call (607) 737-5626, and anyone with information about Nichols to call (607) 733-6580.
