[Missing: Joseph Pinheiro, 48 - Seekonk, Massachusetts (despondent - may need medication - residence is East Providence, RI)]

The East Providence Police Department continues to seek assistance from the public in an effort to track down a missing city man.

Joseph Pinheiro was last seen on January 11, 2016 at an ATM in Seekonk. Mr. Pinheiro does have a past history of depression. Mr. Pinheiro is described as a white male, 5-feet-5 in height, approximately 150 pound and has a cast on his left wrist.

According to family members, he may be traveling south in an effort to find employment. When he's dealt with fits of depression in the past and when he has failed to take medication, he has shown a tendency to move about without notice.

The EPPD issued a second "BOLO" seeking help on Wednesday, Feb. 3. Investigators issued an initial "BOLO," (be on the lookout) announcement on January 22 in an attempt to glean the whereabouts of Mr. Pinheiro.

The BOLO asked for assistance with trying to locate Mr. Pinheiro, 48, and a resident from the center of the city.
His whereabouts was last captured on surveillance cameras as he was walking through an exterior ATM machine.

Mr. Pinheiro is on medication, however he was believed to have not taken his prescription for quite some time. At the time of his disappearance Mr. Pinheiro also a bag of clothes. The last thing he told family members was that he was going to the laundry mat. He has his wallet and access to cash.

Anyone with information that may assist the East Providence Police Department are urged to contact the Detective Bureau at 401-435-7600.
