QUOGUE - Officials say a man missing for six years from Connecticut was found on Long Island. 

Last Friday, Euripides Cruz, 60, was walking along Montauk Highway in Quogue Village when Officer Sherakhan Parker was called. 

Officials say Euripides Cruz appeared to be homeless and hungry, so Officer Parker bought him a meal and searched for his name on the Internet.
