BENSON — Search for a man missing from Wisconsin has led investigators here with response Tuesday from Cochise County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue to a local truck stop.

The family of Norbert Anthony Dantzman, 89, who went missing Aug. 30 from a family reunion in Wisconsin over Labor Day weekend, has been frantically searching for him, granddaughter Kasey Downey relayed to the News-Sun via email. She said there’d been sightings of Dantzman in Tempe and Benson, at Love’s Truck Stop.

“A family member provided details about the missing man to local law enforcement last night in Benson which prompted the search this morning,” said CCSO spokesperson Carol Capas on Tuesday morning via a departmental news release. “The information received indicated that a man matching the description of Mr. Dantzman was seen at the Love’s Truck Stop on Saturday. A Search and Rescue canine conducted an initial search of the area without success and a secondary search is underway. Additional details will be released as they become available.”

Downey said a nationwide Silver Alert has been issued for her grandfather, a Korean War veteran and former merchant marine. He left a Wisconsin motel without his wallet, identification or money, she said. The family has also set up a page: @bringTonyDantzmanhome on Facebook.

Anyone seeing Dantzman is asked to call authorities.
