When we browse through Facebook we often see those sad posts of people who are missing and lost. Posted by their family and loved ones. We hope they find comfort and send prayers and well wishes but we seldom think we’ll ever have to say this….,” Oscar Arencibia posted on Facebook.

“Please, if you know of the whereabouts of my friend Chris Figueroa please contact his sister Cookie Blaylock, Mario J Ponce, Tony Franqui or myself. He has been missing for several days. Last seen in Secaucus, NJ. Any information at all will be helpful.”

Figueroa is 45 years old, according to his Facebook page, has a light complexion, short black hair and a beard.

A photo that has been shared several times by friends and family shows him wearing an orange sweatshirt, though it’s not clear if that’s what he was wearing when he went missing.

They also did not specify where in Secaucus Figueroa was last seen.

The Secaucus Police Department did not immediately return an inquiry seeking more information on the matter.
