Authorities are continuing to search for Wall Street Journal reporter David Bird, who has been missing since this weekend.

Jennifer Maloney of The Journal writes, “Authorities have said they don’t know what happened to David Bird, 55 years old, last seen leaving his home in the Millington section of Long Hill Township.

“Besides scores of volunteers, the search has employed helicopters, horses, ATVs and divers in the Passaic River.

“Mr. Bird, who covers energy markets for the Journal, has worked for Dow Jones for more than 20 years. He did a stint in London for Dow Jones in the 1980s and also has worked for the Associated Press and the Trenton Times, his wife said.

Gerard Baker, the editor in chief of Dow Jones and managing editor of the Journal, said in a statement: ‘Mr. Bird is a longtime member of the Dow Jones newsroom. Our thoughts are with his family and we are working with the Long Hill Township Police Department as they continue their search.'”
