What happened to Max Pepe?

That's what his family and Atlantic City Police are wondering. Pepe, 25, a lifelong resident of Atlantic City and Ventnor has been missing since October 11.

Pepe's aunt told The Press of Atlantic City that the man had been robbed days before he went missing and told his uncle he felt threatened by someone.

Max Pepe is described as 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds, with brown hair, blue eyes, and a freckle on the middle of his nose. He has a close-cropped beard.

Family and friends of Pepe have been putting up fliers in tin and Atlantic City and knocking on doors. They’ve received tips from people who thought they’d seen him, but nothing has come of them.

A Facebook page, Searching 4 Maxwell Pepe, has been established to aid in the search.

If you have any information about Max Pepe, contact Atlantic City Police at (609) 347-5779.
