Circumstances

Tomahawk
Wisconsin

Lincoln
On May 24, 1996 Ben Wilberding disappeared from his parents' home on County Road CC in rural Tomahawk. He spoke to his sister from his home that morning, and that was the last she or anyone else heard from him. Weeks later police found his driver's license and social security card, on a different person. Police investigated that person, but found no evidence linking him to a crime.
Ben's last paycheck remains at Hurd Millwork Co. in Merrill where he was employed as summer help, and his vehicle is parked where it was when he went missing. His Social Security card hasn't been used and his driver's license has not been renewed.
There doesn't seem to be any reasons why Wilberding disappeared, no clues as to where he might be and no ideas if he just fled the country, or if foul play was involved.
