Kristofor Shannon, a 36-year-old Zimmerman man, didn’t show up for work on July 20 and has been reported missing by his girlfriend, according to officials for the Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office.
Scott Gudmundson, the chief deputy for the Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office, said authorities are anxious to meet with him.
That being said, Gudmundson added the sheriff’s office has no reason to believe anything suspicious is going on. Authorities are, however, curious about the man’s state of mind.
Gudmundson said it may be that the Zimmerman man left of his own volition and is doing exactly what he wants to do. “We’re just anxious to talk with him and check his welfare,” Gudmundson said. “But he’s not considered endangered.”
If Shannon does not turn up in 30 days, he will be considered endangered, according to the state law, Gudmundson said.
According to Sheriff Joel Brott, Shannon did not report for work on July 20 and has not been seen or heard from since. Shannon is believed to be driving a 2006 white Chevrolet pickup with the license plate TBH 674. This is a work truck for Shannon, who is essentially self-employed, Gudmundson said.
The truck features signage offering the services of Wall II Wall Painting.
Investigators are attempting to learn the whereabouts of Shannon. Anyone with information as to his whereabouts is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 763-241-2500.
