A Janesville man who has been reported missing was last seen in Afton, Wis., on Oct. 31, according to the Rock County Sheriff’s Office.

The Sheriff’s Office received information on Dec. 1 concerning the welfare of Alan J. Jahnke, 63, of Janesville. He is described as 6 feet tall, weighing 250 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Deputies and detectives have examined Jahnke’s personal affairs, including financial records, which have been inactive since Nov. 1. Police say they searched Jahnke’s home, and it appears that he left suddenly and voluntarily.

Those close to Jahnke believe that he is in danger because of medical issues.

Deputies have searched fields and woods near Jahnke’s residence, including Big Hill Park in Beloit, but have found no clues.

The Rock County Sheriff’s Office encourages anyone with information on Jahnke’s whereabouts to contact authorities.
