Tommy Bertollo’s family and friends are looking for him. And they need your help.
Bertollo, 35, left his home in New Jersey in July and drove to California “on a whim” according to a family friend.
While his family believes Bertollo is suffering from mental illness, Joe Kennedy, the family friend, said they weren’t too concerned because “we had been in contact with him on a pretty regular basis even though it would be a week or two between contact.”
“Fast forward to today and we haven’t been able to get in touch with him since early September,” Kennedy said in an email to WEHOville. “His phone doesn’t appear to be on anymore and it goes right to voicemail but he doesn’t have his mailbox set up. His car was towed from Cynthia Street on October 2nd and that’s the last lead we’ve had.”
Bertollo is about 6’1″ tall and weighed about 220 to 230 pounds when his family last saw him, although he’s likely to have lost some weight. “He was last seen by a friend with a full beard,” Kennedy said, “and he is an avid skate boarder so if there are any skate parks around that would be a good place to suggest looking at.”
Kennedy said that two friends of Bertollo are coming to Los Angeles today to look for him.
