HAVE YOU SEEN HIM? Eight days after his car was abandoned in a park atop the Palisades, Fort Lee police are seeking the public’s help finding a 50-year-old married father of two.

Loved ones said they last saw Hans Jong Lee a week ago yesterday at 11 a.m., Fort Lee Police Chief Keith Bendul said this afternoon.

Nine hours later, Lee’s silver 2000 Honda CRV was found parked at the Rockefeller Lookout in Englewood Cliffs.

Bendul’s squad was joined by a host of other agencies in a search of the cliffs – among them, the Palisades Interstate Parkway Police, the Englewood Cliffs Fire Department, the New Jersey State Police Aviation Unit and the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office K9 unit.

The New York City Police Department Harbor Unit even searched the Hudson near Ross Dock.

The Korean Lee – also known as Hyung Jong Lee – was described as 5-foot-7 and 175 pounds, with brown hair and eyes and a birthmark on his hand.

He was last seen wearing beige pants, a light blue t-shirt and a Navy blue Polo jacket, Bendul said.

If you’ve seen Lee, or know where to find him, Bendul asks that you call his department: (201) 592-3510 or (201) 592-3700 .
