Sheriff’s dept. asks public help finding West Baraboo man

Man missing for a month located, safe

Authorities asked for the public’s help Thursday locating a West Baraboo man who hasn’t been heard from for 10 days.

The Sauk County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a welfare check request on May 11 for 30-year-old Nicholas Moen after a disciplinary action at his workplace in the village of Lake Delton.

Law enforcement officers were not able to contact Moen and additional attempts to locate him since have been unsuccessful, according to a release.

Investigators believe that he has not returned to his apartment since May 11. Moen’s cellphone and other personal items he would need if leaving for an extended period of time are not in his possession.

Moen has not been heard from by his family since May 11, according to the release. Officials said he is known to frequent the casinos near Lake Delton and Black River Falls, and is described as having a gambling problem.

Moen is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds, the sheriff’s office said. He has blonde hair and blue eyes and may be driving a gray 1997 Toyota Camry four-door with Wisconsin license plate 967-FUD.

Citizens are asked to report any information they may have to Detective Justin Hannagan of the Sauk County Sheriff’s Office at 608-355-3233.

Information can also be shared through Sauk County Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-888-847-7285, on Twitter @CrimeSauk or through the Sauk County Crime Stoppers or the Sauk County Sheriff’s Office Facebook pages.
