UPDATE (Thursday 4:16 p.m.)—A 52-year-old Baldwin man has been missing for a week, according to a release from Maryland State Police.
Michael Diffenderffer, 52, of the 12000 block of Fork Road, was last seen around 2:15 p.m. Oct. 5, his wife told police. Diffenderffer is about 6-foot-2 and weighs around 235 pounds. Police believe he is driving a 2005 Acura MDX SUV, which has not been located. The license plate tag is 19469M4.
The Baltimore County resident wrote his wife a note Oct. 5 saying he would be home for dinner. When he did not return, she reported him missing to the state police Bel Air Barrack just before midnight.
"He is known to visit park areas in Harford and Baltimore counties, as well as Western Maryland. Searches of those areas have been conducted by Maryland State Police helicopters, but have so far been unsuccessful," the statement read. "Police departments throughout the East Coast have been notified and are on the lookout for him."
Police added that there were "no signs of foul play or a struggle" at the couple's home.
After speaking with "numerous relatives and friends," state troopers say they don't know why Diffenderffer has gone missing.
