Police Say Weismantel Vanished from the Third Ward Area of Milwaukee
The Third Ward is an eclectic neighborhood right off Milwaukee’s downtown that has undergone a revival and is now populated with higher-end condos, restaurants, and bars. That’s where police say Weismantel was last spotted.
“Weismantel was last seen on 12/20/2021 at approximately 5:00pm in the area near N Water St. and E Buffalo St. He is described as a white, male, 6’00” tall, weighing 160 lbs., dark brown hair, and brown eyes,” Milwaukee police wrote.
“He was last seen wearing a blue winter coat with yellow bands around the bicep, dark blue jeans. Anyone with information is asked to call the Milwaukee Police Department Sensitive Crimes Division at 414-935-7405.”
Weismantel’s Facebook page has almost nothing on it. Heavy has reached out to his loved ones to see if they want to comment and share more information about both Weismantel and his disappearance.
However, a loved one wrote, “The last know(n) location should be Eerie not Buffalo. That is incorrect, per detectives.” She added, “The direction is what they are trying to pin down. They are gathering camera video from around the are to try to trace his steps.”
