The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office is asking for your help in locating a 73-year old man missing from Harrison.

Arthur L. Lewis, Jr., left his home yesterday (12/2/2020) at approximately 0600hrs. According to Lewis’ wife, Arthur left the home driving his red, 2017 Chevrolet Colorado pickup. It is not known where Lewis intended destination was. Law enforcement believes that Arthur suffers from mild dementia and may be lost or confused.

Arthur is a white, male, 600 tall, 210lbs, with balding grayish/brown hair, and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a gray long-sleeve tee shirt, and a gray hooded jacket. Arthur wears prescription eye glasses and does NOT have a cellular telephone with him. Arthur is frequently seen in the Sebago Lake area collecting discarded roadside bottles and cans.

The Regional Communications Center has activated a CodeRED alert to residents and businesses in the area. We are also working with the State to active a SILVER Alert notification.

Anyone with information or possible sightings of Arthur is encouraged
