The Williams County Sheriff’s Office posted a photo of Travis Fitch on Facebook Thursday afternoon, stating he was last seen in Williams County, but Chief Deputy Jeff Lehman declined to comment on whether the posting and photo had any connection to Wednesday night’s manhunt south of Nettle Lake.
“We received a concern call and a request for a well-being check,” Lehman said after the photo was released. “We want to locate him and make sure he’s OK.”
Fitch is 29 years old, 5-foot-10 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds. He has blue eyes and brown hair. Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to contact the Williams County Sheriff’s Office at 419-636-3151.
On Friday morning, several members of Fitch’s family reported they were searching the woods themselves along with residents in the area.
“He’s a missing person at the moment who’s family is worried sick,” Sharon Fitch posted on the Williams County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
