Searching the River for John Dwyer

John Dwyer, 23, has been missing from Wisconsin for roughly a week and, as has now become customary for lads like him who vanish in winter without a trace, officials are searching for Dwyer's body in the river.

The La Crosse native disappeared while celebrating a birthday with his buddies in downtown Wisconsin Dells on Saturday evening. According to eye witnesses, he was last seen alive very early Sunday morning standing outside one of the local bars there.

Investigators say Dwyer and a half-dozen friends had earlier reserved two rooms in the nearby Finch Motel, and Wisconsin Dells Police Chief Jody Ward told reporters that, after their festivities came to a close, the youth was observed "walking north on River Road."

If true, this would've had him heading back to those same lodgings, albeit alone.

A cab driver who claims he drove John Dwyer and pals around town for most of the night says nothing unusual happened, and even remembered thinking the redhead was "a happy-go-lucky kid."

The young man was wearing a green flannel shirt, jeans, and an Oregon Ducks cap when he went missing. He's approximately six-feet tall and 175 pounds, and has short, red hair.

Anyone with any information about what may have happened to him or his current whereabouts is asked to call the Wisconsin Dells Police Department at 608-253-1611. 

(This case is developing -- please feel free to discuss it, or to add more info, in the comment section.)
