    Officials resumed their search Monday for a missing man in Ipswich, according to Massachusetts State Police.

    Mark Porter was last seen Friday, Nov. 3, in the area of Willowdale State Forest, in Ipswich. The 54-year-old was possibly riding his mountain bike, which is a Specialized brand bike.

    State police say they suspended the search in the afternoon, saying that the area he would likely be in if he was in distress was searched, and crews found nothing.

    Porter is described as a white male, 6-foot 3-inches, with short "crew cut" brown hair, blue eyes, and an athletic build. There is no clothing description available.

    If you have any information, you're asked to contact Trooper Schumaker at the State Police Newbury barracks at 978-462-7478.

    State police say they'll continue investigating with local police.
