#Missing: Eugene R. Schmelzer, 61 - Combined Locks, Wisconsin

[Missing: Eugene R. Schmelzer, 61 - Combined Locks, Wisconsin]

Police continued to search Friday for a 61-year-old Combined Locks man who left his home early Thursday morning.

Eugene R. Schmelzer left his home sometime after 1 a.m. on Thursday and hasn't been seen since, according to Fox Valley Metro Police.

He was last seen wearing glasses, black jeans, work boots and a reflective safety jacket. He is 5-feet-8-inches tall and about 150 pounds with gray hair and brown eyes. Police said Thursday they were concerned for Schmelzer's safety because of the cold and because Schmelzer didn't have a car with him.

"This is not typical of his behavior," said Fox Valley Metro Police community support officer Michael Lambie. "We don't have any indication that he went to a certain area or was with anyone in particular."

Lambie said Schmelzer does not suffer from dementia or Alzheimer's disease. He said there is no indication of foul play.

K9 search units with the K9 Emergency Response Team volunteer group assisted with search efforts Thursday afternoon and evening but were unable to find Schmelzer.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lambie at the Fox Valley Metro Police Department at 920-788-7505.
