The Jasper County man who was reported missing late last week has been located. Stephen Stirewalt, of West Liberty, Illinois made contact with family via phone on Saturday evening. Stirewalt informed his family that he was in another state and was on his way home.
Stirewalt was reported missing after leaving his home last Wednesday afternoon. He had left his home at his routine time for work, but he never checked in for his scheduled 2:00pm shift.
Jasper County Police say that although all information about Stirewalt indicated that he had left voluntarily, an attempt to locate for a welfare check was still issued.
