The Lyndhurst Police Department is actively conducting a missing-person investigation.

Vitorino Cirne, seen in the photo with this post, was reported missing early Thursday morning April 12, to the LPD.

Cirne is 51, 5’7” tall, weighs 150 pounds, has brown eyes, brown and gray hair and a fair complexion. He was last seen wearing blue lounge pants and a black Adidas zipper-front jacket with white stripes on the sleeves.

Cirne left his residence between 1:30 a.m. and 6 a.m., the morning of the April 12 — in his vehicle — which has since been recovered in Lyndhurst in the area of Kingsland and Riverside avenues.
