JANESVILLE TOWNSHIP, Wis. -

The Rock County Sheriff’s Office is trying to find a man who a witness saw walking on foot in bitterly cold temperatures Monday night.

Deputies were called to the intersection of North Little Road and County Road A in Janesville Township at 8:26 p.m. for a report of a man walking and stumbling on County Road A.

The temperature at the time was 2 degrees and the wind chill was -14.

The passerby said the man was white, in his late 40s to late 50s, about 6 feet tall and weighing 220 to 230 pounds with dark or gray facial hair. He was wearing a tan-colored coat and dark pants and had difficulty keeping his balance while walking.

He was last seen at 8:28 p.m. walking across a field.

A search started a few minutes later. Janesville police assisted deputies with a K-9 and also used a thermal imaging device. The DNR canvassed the area with a thermal imaging-equipped airplane.

The search ended at 4:24 a.m.

Anyone with information to help determine the well-being of the man is asked to call 608-757-2244.
