HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - As darkness moved in Thursday night, officials called off their search for a missing Gulfport man who has not been seen in two months.

Search and rescue teams have been combing the area around Coleman Road in Gulfport for two days looking for any clues that might help investigators find 34-year-old Jay Lawrence Bond.

Bond's home on Honey Dew Lane, is located off of Coleman Road. He was reportedly last seen walking down Coleman Road on December 1, 2011.

Captain Carl Rhodes with the Harrison County Sheriff's Department said, family members reported Bond missing on January 24 after finding out that Bond's live-in girlfriend did not make a report.

Bond is described as 5'10", 200 pounds, blonde hair, blue eyes with a tattoo. Bond was last seen wearing a Tan Walls jacket, blue shirt and blue jeans, officials said.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Bond is asked to contact the Harrison County Sheriff's Investigation Division at (228) 896-0678 or visit CrimeStoppers.
