Newtown Township Police Chief Rick Pasqualini said the department is doing all it can to help find Michael Naylon, the local man who has been missing for nearly two weeks.
During the Newtown Township supervisors meeting on Wednesday, Pasqualini asked all residents to be on the lookout for Naylon, who has been missing since Sept. 28. According to his daughter, Megan, he was last seen walking down Route 413 towards Newtown from Worthington Mill Road. Naylon, 65, may be disoriented due to a stroke, she said.
“We’ve done everything we can on a daily basis,” Pasqualini said. “Our patrols are looking for him.”
Pasqualini asked that if anyone sees him, to call the department at 215-579-1000.
In addition to the police searching for Naylon, his family as well as the local boy scouts have organized various searches. Members of Troop 99 and volunteers on Tuesday searched Tyler State Park, Newtown Borough, the Village at Newtown Shopping Center, the abandoned houses across from the shopping center and surrounding neighborhoods but had no success finding Naylon.
Searches over the weekend were also fruitless. According to Megan, search dogs were sent out in Tyler State Park and throughout town over the weekend. The last time someone reported seeing Naylon was Friday evening at Tyler State Park.
Megan said she believes her father had a stroke while walking on Route 413 and it caused him to become disoriented. He has had four strokes in the past, she said, and two of those strokes caused him to become confused and disoriented. The other two times he made it to the hospital in time.
“He had a stroke before and walked from Penndel to Bristol,” she said, adding he followed familiar landmarks he recognized from growing up in that area.
He is 5 feet, 9 inches, about 170 pounds, he daughter said. He has grey hair, brown eyes and tattoos on his arms and left shoulder blade.
