    Police in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, released new details Wednesday about a missing Maine man last seen leaving a local bar nearly three weeks ago.

    Adam Camarato, 32, of Eliot, was last seen in downtown Portsmouth on Saturday, April 27, just before 1 a.m. He had been at the Clipper Tavern that night.

    "It's baffling," said the man's sister, Jamie Fultz.

    Camarato, a father of two, was with a friend at the Clipper Tavern. The friend went to the bathroom and when he came back, Camarato was gone.

    "He would never just disappear," said Fultz.

    Investigators say surveillance cameras capture him leaving the bar alone. He's last seen on State Street walking toward the bridge to Maine about 15 minutes later.

    "He appears to be somewhat intoxicated, or at least not walking normally," said Portsmouth Police Chief Robert Merner.

    Searches of the Piscataqua River and the surrounding area have turned up nothing.

    There has been no activity on his phone or credit cards.

    The last time anyone heard from Camarato was a post on Snapchat from inside the bar.

    Police say there's no reason to suspect foul play, but they can't be sure.

    Also on Wednesday, Merner addressed an allegation made by another man who said he was hit with some sort of "date rape drug" while at the Clipper Tavern last weekend. But he said at this point there is no connection between the two cases. 

    Authorities are hoping for some leads in the case and would really like to speak to anyone who may have spoken with Camarato at the bar that night or after he left.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Portsmouth Police Communications Center at 603-436-2145.
