OTSEGO, Minn. (KMSP) - Police are asking the public for assistance in locating Joseph (Joe) Brunn, 23, who went missing after leaving Boondox Bar and Grille in Otsego around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. Brunn never returned home and his family and friends are concerned.
He left behind his car and was last seen walking from the restaurant towards a field. On Sunday, family and friends searched the cornfield and along the Mississippi River nearby with no luck.
"Absolutely, just a total shock," one volunteer said. "It's just the worst nightmare. Joe's a great family guy. A hundred percent plugged into everything that family does, so for him to not report in or check in is unheard of."
Brunn was wearing black/grey dress pants, light blue button up, black belt and black dress shoes. He's 5’8”, 200lbs. Police are asking residents in the Otsego, Elk River, and Monticello to check around their property.
Brunn currently resides in Monticello and grew up in Rogers, Minn.
