Driver Disappears After Sinking Boss’ Truck
Portage Co. Sheriff’s Officers say one man has gone missing after driving a truck belonging to his employer into Jordan Pond.
Sheriff’s Office officials say a call came in early Thursday morning about a pickup truck in the pond, located off Highway 66. Divers and rescue crews searched the water, but could not find the driver.
Portage County Sheriff Lieutenant Nikki Lukas said Friday the driver is alive but eluding authorities.
The drive, whose name has not been released, has been working for an Appleton- based roofing company in Stevens Point. The drive did return to his hotel and made contact with the truck’s owner, but has since left.
Lukas said the man was likely intoxicated, and officials have yet to locate him.
