Police have been left baffled after two friends mysteriously vanished without a trace following a small party at one of their homes five days ago.

Zachary Wells, 21, and Prescott Wright, 23, were last seen drinking beer at Wells’ home in Kennebunkport, Maine around midnight on Wednesday.

But when one of Wells’ roommates went downstairs to turn off a radio at 4am, neither man was there.
