Minneapolis police are looking for a man who has been missing for the past week, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Joe Zurnieden, 42, was last seen July 1 at his home. Police found his vehicle two days later near 26th Avenue Northeast and Marshall Avenue Northeast in Minneapolis, which is near the Mississippi River.

Zurnieden is white, 6 feet tall, weighs 165 pounds and has dark receding hair.

Nearly 100 people turned out to search for him on Tuesday, according to KSTP.

Anyone with information on Zurnieden's whereabouts is asked to call Minneapolis police at 612-692-8477.

The search also continues for a Sartell woman who went missing about two weeks ago. The family of Sara Winscher, 36, reported her missing on Saturday, according to the Stearns County Sheriff's Office.

Winscher has frequented the Clearwater Travel Plaza and the Uptown area in Minneapolis. Officials say she could also be living out of her car, which is described as a 1998 green Toyota Corolla with hail damage. The license plate number is 605 JVK.

If you have information on the whereabouts of Sara Winscher, you are asked to call the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office at 320-251-4240.
