The family of Leo Paul Massicotte, III, of Manchester, is offering a $5,000 cash reward to locate the Manchester man, who has been missing since July 3, 2011.

Massicotte’s longtime girlfriend Jessica Poe, who police have cleared as a suspect, dropped him off near the Arnold Engineering Development Center at Arnold Air Force Base in Manchester. Massicotte, 34, was last seen wearing a brown T-shirt, cut-off blue jean shorts and Timberland work boots.

Massicotte, who has family ties to Nashville, goes by Paul and his date of birth is Jan. 21, 1978. Massicotte is a 6-foot-1-inch-tall white male and weighs approximately 180 to 200 pounds. He has hazel eyes and a short, brown military-style haircut. He is a father of six, three of whom live in Manchester and three live in Florida.

“We are extremely concerned about finding him and fear for his safety,” said his mother Elizabeth Drawdy. “We are desperate for information to find him and have tried every resource to locate him.”

Massicotte’s family is offering the reward with no questions asked as long as it leads to locating Massicotte.

Anyone with information on Massicotte can call Manchester Police Department Crime Stoppers at 1-931-461-8888 or Detective Ray Stewart at the Manchester Police Department 931-728-2099.

Massicotte’s family has hired private investigator Larry Flair Sr. to help in this case. Those who want to remain anonymous but have information regarding Massicotte’s disappearance can call Flair at 615-519-4800 day or night.
