The Cut has updated information on the last known sighting of Brooklyn designer Jay Ott, who has been missing since March 22nd. "The most recent footage revealed a clean-shaven Ott entering the pedestrian pathway of the Williamsburg Bridge at 5:02 a.m. His father explains that while the NYPD acquired footage of two men exiting the bridge on the Manhattan side, the video is too dark to tell which one is Jay Ott." Anyone with any information is asked to call Detective Thomas Pisano at 718-963-5368, the Friends of Jay hotline at 718-710-7919, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. [The Cut; Previously]
