Search continues for missing northern Wisconsin man

WINTER (WKOW) — A Silver Alert has been expanded for a missing man who was last seen at the Strouf Motel in Winter on Aug. 30.

Norbert “Tony” Anthony Dantzman, 89, was last seen with his family in Sawyer County at around 10 a.m. on Friday, according to the Wisconsin Justice Department Silver Alert Facebook page.

According to his family, Dantzman was visiting from California to celebrate 100 years since his family purchased the family farm near Winter, Wisconsin.

He was one of two main guests of honor because he was born and raised there and was in the Merchant Marine in Duluth.

He walked away from the hotel by himself, likely confused, and appears to have caught a ride from someone since search and rescue canines lost his scent at a highway.

He could’ve taken up residence with an elderly woman with similar cognitive issues, according to his family.

Dantzman is believed to not have an ID on him or any money.

Dantzman was last seen wearing a checkered shirt with a black vest, black pants, black shoes, a gray hat with the Marines emblem and glasses.

He is 5 feet, 9 inches tall, weighs 136 pounds and has brown eyes and gray hair with a beard.

Those with information about Dantzman’s whereabouts can call the Sawyer County Sheriff’s Department at (715) 634-5213.
