State Police are investigating the suspicious disappearance of a 37-year-old Avon man who was last seen on New Year’s Day climbing into a passenger car with two men.

James J. Robertson was seen getting into a silver Toyota Camry in Avon at 12:50 p.m. Jan. 1. The two men displayed law enforcement badges and handguns at Robertson’s home before leaving with him in the car, State Police said.

Detectives assigned to Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey’s office have developed two composite sketches of men believed to be connected to the disappearance.

The first suspect is a white man with graying hair, 5 feet 10 tall, and in his 50s or 60s. Police said he has a stocky build.

The second suspect is a 50-year-old white man with light brown hair. He is about 6 feet tall and has a thin frame, police said. Detectives do not know why the men would seek Robertson or whether he knew them, said David Traub, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office.

“These are all questions we need to answer,” Traub said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact state or local police at 508-820-2121.
