Missing Grundy Center Man


DES MOINES, Iowa
-- On October 26th, 2017, Michael Bruce Johns, age 28, was reported as a missing person to the Grundy Center Police Department.  He is described as 5’-7” tall and weighing 180 lbs (see photos).  During the subsequent investigation, information was developed which led law enforcement to believe that at the time of his disappearance, Johns was wearing a white baseball cap, a green or dark colored Under Armor hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and white and gray tennis shoes (see photos).  The investigation also developed information that indicated that Johns was last seen in an area between Greene, Iowa and Charles City, Iowa (see map) during the early morning hours of October 25th, 2017, at around 6:00 am.  Past that time, Johns has not been seen or heard from.  Investigators believe that foul play is suspected in Johns’ disappearance.

The Grundy County Sheriff’s Office and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation are asking for the public’s assistance in providing any information about having contact with or sightings of Johns in the area mapped out below, during the early morning of October 25th, 2017.  The public is also encouraged to be vigilant to be looking for anything that would indicate a current location for Johns based off the clothing that he is believed to be wearing.
