Po­lice seek info on miss­ing vil­lage man

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - LOCAL NEWS - Free­man staff

Vil­lage po­lice are ask­ing for help lo­cat­ing a miss­ing 56-yearold man who they de­scribed as tran­sient and ad­dicted to opi­ates.

Fred­er­ick S. Con­klin, a res­i­dent of the vil­lage with no per­ma­nent ad­dress, last was seen on foot at about noon Satur­day, leav­ing the home of a “lady friend” at 4 Spring St., where he’d stayed for two days prior to his dis­ap­pear­ance, Ellenville Po­lice Chief Philip Mat­tra­cion said Wed­nes­day.

Con­klin, who does not own a car, left his cell phone at the wo­man’s home, the chief said. He “had a sum of money” and a back­pack with him when he left, Mat­tra­cion said.

“I’ve known Freddy for a long time . ... He re­ally doesn’t bother any­body,” the chief said, adding that po­lice have made con­tact with all of Con­klin’s fam­ily mem­bers and used po­lice dogs and as­sis­tance from the Ul­ster County Sher­iff’s Of­fice and state po­lice to search wooded ar­eas and un­der bridges Con­klin is known to fre­quent.

Mat­tra­cion said Con­klin, an opi­ate ad­dict who some­times uses heroin, has not con­tacted his daugh­ter and sis­ter, who he usu­ally con­tacts “like clock­work” for a ride to the phar­macy for med­i­ca­tion.

The po­lice chief says Con­klin over­dosed on heroin two weeks ago and was saved with Nar­can, which can re­vive un­con­scious heroin ad­dicts and is used by first re­spon­ders.

Con­klin, who po­lice said “may be en­dan­gered,” last was seen wear­ing jeans with paint on them, a yel­low sweat­shirt and Jor­dan sneak­ers. He is 5-foot-10, weighs 155 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes, po­lice said.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about Con­klin’s where- abouts is asked to call El- lenville po­lice at (845) 6474422.
