BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — New information came to light Wednesday regarding the disappearance of Binghamton man James E. Andrews.
The Binghamton Police Department said although it believes Andrews went missing in or near the beginning of August, a missing person’s report wasn’t filed until August 17th, more than two weeks after police believe he was last seen.
Neighbors tell 12 News although Andrews lived alone, in the months leading up to August, a young family was seen coming and going from Andrews’ home at all hours of the night. Neighbors initially told 12 News they believed the family was caring for Andrews, but on Wednesday they shared their suspicions that the family took advantage of the 73-year-old Andrews. That family, whose names are unknown at this time, has not been seen by neighbors since Andrews disappeared.
Binghamton Police told 12 News that our initial coverage of Andrews’ disappearance has generated new tips for law enforcement to follow.
“We are currently following up on several different leads that have come in,” said Lieutenant Cory Minor. “At this point, every bit of information that does come in to the detective division, that gets assigned out to a team of detectives and they follow up on the information.”
Police would not comment on the whereabouts of Andrews’ car, which neighbors say is also missing. Neighbors describe the vehicle as a silver, sporty Toyota SUV.
If you believe you have seen something suspicious, or even seen Andrews himself, please call the Binghamton police detectives, 607-772-7080.
