Original story

A 36-year-old from northern Minnesota is missing, and local authorities are asking for helping finding him.

The Itasca County Sheriff's Office says Benjamin John Panchyshyn was last seen around 6 p.m. Saturday. At that time, he left his residence on N. Sugar Lake Trail - a small road tucked between Pokegama Lake and Siseebakwet Lake, and located just outside Grand Rapids, Minnesota.

Panchyshyn was apparently riding a bright blue Jamis Roughneck, a type of fat-tired mountain bike, at the time he left his home. He was wearing gray sweatpants and a black wind jacket with "UNW" on it.

The sheriff's office has not offered any other details about the circumstances of his disappearance, but are asking for the public's help locating him.

If anyone has any information, or has seen Panchyshyn, they're asked to call the Itasca County Sheriff's Office at 218-326-3477.
