NORTHFIELD, Minn. (AP) — Police are asking farmers and landowners in the Northfield area to report any clues about the disappearance of a 39-year-old man missing more than seven months.
Joshua Bohlen was last seen Sept. 20, 2012, near his pickup about a mile north of Dennison.
Police say Bohlen was suffering from paranoia when he disappeared and likely would have hidden from any people or vehicles.
Authorities are asking anyone who owns or rents property in the area to check their land before crops or vegetation begins to grow. That includes creek bottoms, sloughs, wooded areas and abandoned buildings or farm sites.
Bohlen is a white man, 5-foot-6, 180 pounds with blond hair. He possibly was last wearing jeans, a long-sleeved shirt and hiking or work boots.
