Leroy Doerr May Have Been Seen

A Creighton man missing since Friday may have been seen walking along Highway 59 on Saturday morning.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office released information from an interview on Thursday that indicated a man matching the description of Leroy Doerr, who is missing from Creighton,  was seen on the south shoulder of Highway 59 around 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

The witness said the individual was not dressed for cold weather and was about 8 1/2 miles east of Doerr's residence walking east. 

After talking to local farmers in that area, officials said they cannot identify who the man might have been.

Based on that information, the Sheriff’s Office is asking that anyone who may have seen a man walking Saturday morning or afternoon either on Highway 59 or possibly Highway 81 is asked to call the Knox County Sheriff’s Office at 402-288-4261
