Search continues for missing man from Schofield

Posted:

(WAOW)--The search continues for a missing man from Schofield. 36-year-old Lee Vesely has not been seen since Wednesday.

Investigators say Vesely had been staying with his cousin in Delevan. Deputies in Rock County found his mini-van Thursday, crashed into a tree, but the man was no where to be found. Authorities say Vesely called his cousin after the crash.

"He was worried that he might get in trouble and asked them not to call authorities at that time. So that's why no one was contacted until someone came across the van against the tree," Rock County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Josh Lund said.

The Sheriff's Department says no blood was found in the car, and they do not believe Vesely is injured. Officials say they have been searching using ATVs, snow mobiles and helicopters.

Authorities say Vesely's family is down in Rock County helping with the search. Newsline 9 attempted to reach the family, but were unsuccessful. Authorities say they will being the search again tomorrow.

If you have any information, Rock County authorities ask you call (608) 757-2244
