East Hampton police have launched a ‘full court press search’ to find the 82-year-old photographer, who has shot classic pictures of rock icons including Mick Jagger and David Bowie.
AceShowbiz -Celebrated photographer Peter Beard has gone missing in New York.
Beard, 82, who has shot classic pictures of rock icons including Mick Jagger and David Bowie, disappeared on Tuesday afternoon, March 31, from his home in Montauk, New York, according to the New York Times.
Peter suffers from dementia, according to local authorities, who described him as “vulnerable” and potentially “in need of medical attention.”
Back in 2017, his third wife, Nejma Beard, had him placed in a psychiatric ward at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital after he brought two Russian prostitutes to their home.
She claimed he was suicidal when he stumbled back to their Manhattan apartment at 6 am after a night partying in the city’s Meatpacking District.
Following his disappearance, emergency responders, equipped with dogs, drones and thermal imaging equipment, searched his property, where he lives with Nejma on Wednesday.
East Hampton Police Chief Michael Sarlo said cops have launched a “full court press search” to find him. He was last seen wearing a blue sweatshirt and grey sweatpants.
Officers are asking people to call at 631-537-7575 or 911 with any information regarding Peter’s whereabouts.
