Michigan Police reports that on Sunday July 14th around 11:08 p.m. they were called to a missing person complaint on Esmond Road in Wilber Township, Iosco County.

When police arrived at the home, they were told that a 69-year-old man was working on plumbing in their crawlspace around 5 p.m. that day.
