Sleepy Eye man remains missing 06 Jun 18

The search for 73-year-old Vincent Mathiowetz of Sleepy Eye who has been missing since Sunday continues. The Brown County Sheriff’s Office says due to strong currents, low water visibility and river debris on the Cottonwood River the search and recovery efforts for Mathiowetz have been hampered. The search is concentrated to an area south of Sleepy Eye and the Cottonwood River where K-9 tracking and cadaver dogs have given strong indications that Mathiowetz is in the water. The Brown County Sheriff’s Office plans to continue the search today.
