An Eau Claire man was last seen Saturday night after being separated from his friends on Water Street, and now authorities are asking for your help in locating him.
28 year old James B. Liedtka was out with friends on Saturday, November 3rd, and last had telephone contact with one of them at approximately 12:25 am Sunday morning.
It was later that Monday afternoon that the Eau Claire Police Department was notified that Liedtka had not been seen and numerous attempts have been made to contact him but were unsuccessful.
Police began to investigate and found that his vehicle has not moved since the night he went missing. He has not been to his residence in Eau Claire or
Menomonie where he is a student at UW-Stout. He has also not been in class all week.
According to Liedtka’s telephone records, his last activity was on November 4, at 8:25 pm. This activity could be an incoming phone call or incoming text message. The telephone is now inactive, which means it is either shut off or the battery has died.
The GPS coordinates provided by the telephone company led the police to the 1100 block Menomonie Street near the Chippewa River and authorities are searching that area.
He is described to be 5’7″, 170 lbs with dark brown hair and eyes. He was last seen wearing a baseball cap, white button up red plaid and black stripes shirt and jeans.
