The Masci Family wishes to thank all those in the East Haddam community and surrounding communities, the volunteers who searched, the volunteers who supported the searchers, police, fire, EMTs and all the others for their efforts this past week to find Robert Masci.

Masci’s remains were found by a K-9 unit in a heavily wooded area off Deer Run Road on Saturday, Oct 22. He had been missing since Tuesday when he failed to return home after an afternoon walk.

The family spoke briefly to volunteers at the Nathan Hale Ray High School and at the Fire Station following the discovery of Robert Masci.

Ruth and Michael Masci, Robert’s son and daughter-in-law, expressed the family’s deep gratitude for all the efforts made to find their father. They said they were truly thankful to all.

Anyone who wishes to send the Mascis condolences or share their thoughts are invited to leave a comment below.

bob masciThe remains of Robert Masci, 68, of Boardman Road, East Haddam, CT  have been found in a heavily wooded area near his home.

Masci, who was first reported missing Tuesday afternoon when he failed to return home from a walk, was found off Deer Run Road by a K-9 unit shortly before noon on Saturday, Oct. 22.

Volunteers had gathered this morning at the Nathan Hale Ray High School at 7 a.m. in a town-wide coordinated search effort to find Masci, who suffered from mild dementia.

The search was called off shortly before noon when reports came back that he was found.

Masci’s wife, Marci, announced shortly thereafter to the group gathered at the high school that Robert’s remains had been found. She spoke briefly to thank  all of the volunteers gathered for all their hard work. Family and friends surrounded her and offered their support.

State Police are considering this an open case until their investigation is completed.
