Haverhill Resident John Lawler Still Missing After Two Months

After an extensive two-month search, authorities have yet to locate 53-year-old Haverhill resident John Lawler, who went missing on July 14. Lawler was last seen in Saugus, where he had been staying at the Salvation Army rehab center on Broadway. According to his son, Sean Lawler, John Lawler left the center with his fishing pole and debit card, but left most of his belongings behind, including his cell phone.

Investigation findings reveal that on the day of his disappearance, John Lawler withdrew $5,000 from a bank, deposited it in a new bank, and then withdrew $40. He was captured on security footage at a Walmart purchasing fishing supplies. Lawler also visited a Burger King nearby, where a transaction was recorded on his bank records. Police are currently attempting to obtain security footage from the Burger King to determine Lawler’s subsequent movements.

Lawler’s son believes it is possible that his father may have mentioned the $5,000 to the wrong person, potentially leading to his disappearance. Alternatively, he speculates that his father may have sustained an injury while fishing, as this has happened before. Lawler’s family is deeply concerned about his well-being, emphasizing that he is not the type to voluntarily leave without staying close to family.

John Lawler is described as a physically fit white male, approximately 5-foot-8 and weighing around 190 pounds. He has brown eyes, is bald, and has two tattoos—a skull with flames on his right arm and a devil face on his left arm. Saugus police have confirmed that Lawler’s debit card was used on the day of his disappearance but has not been used since.

Residents living near the Burger King at 720 Broadway in Saugus or in proximity to any nearby water bodies are urged to review their security camera footage from July 14 for any potential sightings of Lawler. Anyone with information regarding Lawler’s whereabouts is encouraged to contact Saugus police at 781-941-1199.
