UPDATE: Missing Manchester woman's roommate found dead, police continue to search


MANCHESTER - Stephen Andrade, the man reported missing by Manchester police, was found dead in a Motel Six Wednesday in Tewksbury.

Andrade was the last person to see Sue Hutchinson, who was reported missing over three weeks ago.

Manchester police said in a press release Andrade's death appears to be a self-inflicted gun shot wound.

Now, Manchester Police are racing to find Hutchinson.

“It has been three weeks and no one has heard from her at all,” said Detective Sargent Tim Patterson of Manchester.

Police said Hutchinson's phone records show no calls and her credit cards have had no activity.

“So many things go through your mind," said Hutchinson’s close friend Angel Torres. "Did she see this coming? Did she walk out with him? So many things.”

Police are investigating the relationship between Hutchinson and Andrade, who were reportedly roommates.

“They were just roommates and as far as we could tell - no bad blood,” said Patterson.

Tewksberry Police have not said if anything was found at the scene indicating Hutchinson’s whereabouts.

“I always told her to keep her phone on her just in case,” said Torres.

Police have found both missing vehicles, one a few blocks from Hutchinson’s home on Calef Road and the other at a Golds Gym in Merrimack.

The staff confirmed that Hutchinson was a member of the gym but said they don’t recall how the car got there or if she was behind the wheel.

“We haven’t found anything that’s led us anywhere but were still working at this point,” said Patterson about searching the cars.

Patterson described both families as “very nervous” and “very distraught” at this time.

Torres thinks that the answers may lie with Andrade.

“He’s got the answer of what happened. He knows,” said Torres.

Manchester Police said they aren’t taking this case lightly so if anyone has information on either Hutchinson or Andrade they urge you to call to contact the Manchester Police Detective unit at (603) 668-8711 or Manchester Police Crimeline at (603) 642-4040.
