Search For Missing Rogers City Man Is Called Off

Posted: Updated:

The search for Mikel Schepke has been called off.

Police feel with firearm season opening Friday, it's too dangerous for volunteers to be in a hunting area.

Schepke was last seen walking on Birchwood Drive in Rogers City Sunday afternoon.

Family and friends say Schepke is diabetic and mentally handicapped.  

 Searchers spent 3 days combing the forests, water, and trails -- but there are no signs of Schepke.

 The sheriff's department is asking hunters to be their eyes while in the woods this weekend.

 If you have any information on his whereabouts, please contact Presque Isle County Sheriff's Office at 989-734-2156.
