MADISON, Wis. - Police said the search for a missing 80-year-old Milton man has been extended nationwide, but they are still following up with statewide tips.
Milton Police Chief Dan Layber said the department received a lot of tips Monday night and Tuesday, but tips have died off since then.
Layber said they received tips reporting sightings of Brown on Sunday in Montello, Oxford, Madison, Mount Horeb, Cottage Grove and Eau Claire, but none of them were confirmed sightings. People also reported seeing Brown on Monday in Ripon, Janesville and Chicago.
Brown has been entered into police databases everywhere in the United States, officials said.
Layber said police are actively looking for Brown in the areas of the reported sightings, but the reports are typically coming in hours or days after the reported sightings.
A Silver Alert was issued Friday for Brown, who was seen leaving Monticello on Wednesday, and was believed to be heading back to Milton. Police said they also believe there’s a possibility he’s heading to Canada.
On Monday, police asked residents in Sun Prairie and Tomah to be on the lookout for him, as well as residents in northern Wisconsin along the Interstate 94 corridor and northern Minnesota.
He was driving a white 2013 Ford Explorer with Wisconsin license plate 60YRS, police said. Brown is 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs 173 pounds, is bald and has blue eyes. He was wearing a buckskin jacket, a blue knit hat and dark tan pants.
Officials said Brown met a friend for lunch in Monticello on Wednesday, left the restaurant and did not return home as expected. Later that afternoon, he was spotted near Milwaukee Street in Janesville. A witness said Brown appeared confused.
Layber said none of Brown’s credit cards have been used recently.
Officials ask anyone with information on Brown’s whereabouts to call 608-868-6910 or 608-757-2244.
