Rothesay Police search for missing man

The Rothesay Police are asking for the public's help to find Scott Arthur Taylor, who has not been seen since Dec. 2.

The Rothesay Police are searching for a 23-year-old man who hasn't been seen in six days and was the centre of a high-profile murder trial three years ago.

Scott Arthur Taylor was last seen Friday morning on McDonald Street in east Saint John.

Taylor is known for being found not guilty of second-degree murder in the death Darell Upshaw, 33, of Cole Harbour, N.S., in 2008.

Taylor normally keeps in touch with friends and family, so a day after he dropped all contact they were concerned.

A family member contacted the police to report him missing.

His car was found on Ellerdale Street in east Saint John on Monday, but Taylor nowhere to be seen.

Rothesay Police Insp. Jeff Giggey said investigators have received some tips on where Taylor could be but the police are hoping for more information about his disappearance.

"At this point we're not going to rule anything out. But as it stands now it's a missing persons case and as I said we're looking for any information that can help us find him."

Taylor is described as a white male, 6-1 and 179 pounds. He has short brown hair and blue eyes.

Giggey said as the hours go by, the family is growing more anxious.

"His family members have not heard from him — they're concerned. And that's why we're asking for the public's help with any information to relation of his whereabouts," he said.
