Search underway for missing tourist in Miami

MIAMI (WSVN) - The City of Miami Police Department is seeking the public’s help locating a tourist visiting from New York who went missing.

Officials said 47-year-old Henry Olomo was last seen in the area of Northeast Third Street and First Avenue, Friday.

Olomo is described as a black male with gray hair and brown eyes, weighing approximately 134 pounds and standing at 5 feet 6 inches tall.

His family said he does suffer from some mental illnesses.

Olomo is in town on vacation with his brother, Devaughn Earthman, who is now begging for the 47-year-old’s safe return.

“We’re just really concerned because we’re not from here. This is his first time here,” Earthman said. “He doesn’t have his medication, he doesn’t have his ID, he doesn’t have any money, so we don’t know how to find him.”

Authorities urged anyone with information on his whereabouts to call Miami Police at at (305) 603-6300.
