A lifelong resident of the city, Blumenthal does not own a car and was known to take daily walks near his Bayside home, Martin said.
Blumenthal is described as 5 feet 9 inches tall, 180 pounds, with short brown or graying hair, and blue eyes. He carries a cell phone, but Martin said all calls to it have gone directly to voicemail.
