The Knightdale Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating a 66-year-old bicyclist from Massachusetts who was last seen on the evening of Sept. 17 leaving the Verizon store at 6807 Knightdale Blvd. in Knightdale.
Richard Moreau was last seen on a green bicycle wearing a T-shirt, shorts, black and gray helmet, black and red riding gloves and black New Balance sneakers. It is believed that he was headed toward Wendell to camp for the night before continuing his bicycle route to Florida. His bicycling route, however, should be taking him along U.S. 1.
Moreau has been pursuing a lifelong dream of bicycling from Massachusetts to Florida. He left North Attleboro, Mass., on Aug. 26 with few belongings and has been checking in with his family daily. The family last heard from him Sept. 17.
Police ask anyone with information about Moreau’s whereabouts to call Sgt. Danny Phillips at the Knightdale Police Department at 919-217-2261 or 911.
