New leads in search for missing Wood Co. man

Posted:

GRAND RAPIDS (WAOW)--Police say they have new leads in the search for a missing man from Wood County. 29-year-old Greg Senn has been missing since January 14.

Investigators say they've narrowed the search to a time and place where Senn was last seen. Now they're asking the public for more information.

The Grand Rapids Police Chief says the area south of Lake Wazeecha is where Greg Senn was last seen on January 14. They say he was walking from Grand Rapids towards his home in Wisconsin Rapids.

"People are telling us things and we are piecing everything together about where he originally started from and where he was last seen," Grand Rapids Police Chief Dave Lewandowski said.

Lewandowski says his department received a tip from someone who saw Senn walking that morning. Officials say around 6:45 A.M. someone pulled over and asked Senn where he was going. Police say that was at the intersection of Whitrock Ave. and 75th St.

"The dogs kind of concluded that this is the area that he was in, they did confirm that for us," Lewandowski said.

Police say Senn told the driver he was walking home, and that person drove on.

Officials say Greg Senn did frequently hitch hike, and if he was doing so on Whitrock Ave. on the morning of January 14, someone passing him may not have even noticed.

Senn's family says they've searched everywhere they can, and they're aggressively trying to find him.

"We've been concentrating on spreading the word via Internet and putting out a lot of flyers," said Ed Senn, Greg Senn's brother.

Ed Senn says any lead could help.

"If you gave my brother a ride and he disappeared after that please let us know. We want to know how far he made it. It can help us continue our search in new directions," Ed Senn said.

Police say they do not suspect foul play at this time.

"We are still actively pursuing this, and we won't stop until we find Greg," Lewandowski said.

Police say if anyone has a tip, to contact the Grand Rapids Police Department or the Wood County Crime Stoppers.
