On the evening of November 3, 2018, 28-year-old veteran James Liedtka and his roommate joined some friends on a popular street in Eau Claire, Wisconsin for a night of celebrating a friend’s birthday. During that evening, James got separated from the group he was with. In the early morning hours of November 4, James was seen on a surveillance video walking behind a local bar in the direction of a bike path. That camera footage is the last known sighting of James. Extensive searches have been conducted but no trace of him has been found.

If you have any information about the disappearance of James Liedtka, please contact the Eau Claire Police Department at 715-839-4972.
