Find Missing Gene Jacob Cloud Jr!

Gene Jacob Cloud Jr was last seen in Jackson County, Wisconsin on January 25, 2012. After he left a girlfriend’s residence in Black River Falls, the vehicle he was driving ran off the road got stuck in a ditch on Highway O near the town of Millston.

A police officer witnessed the accident and stopped to offer assistance, but when the officer asked for identification, Cloud ran off into the woods, taking his Dachshund dog with him. The dog was six months old at the time, with short brown fur, and may have been wearing a sweater.

The car Cloud was driving was registered to his girlfriend’s sister, and he may have feared the owner would be angry about what had happened. He also had some outstanding warrants for his arrest on minor charges. This may have been why he fled from the police.

Volunteer searchers tracked his footprints for over three miles, through snow that was up to three feet deep in places. The police brought in tracking dogs who traced Cloud’s scent to the road, where they lost the trail. He has never been heard from again.

(FOLLOWING DETAILS COULD NOT BE VERIFIED) Cloud’s family doesn’t believe he left voluntarily. His girlfriend was pregnant with his child and he told his family that anticipation of fatherhood had caused him to rethink his life. He had moved to Tomah, Wisconsin to be with his girlfriend and was going back to school so he could get a high school diploma and be able to support his child when it was born.

Since his disappearance, he hasn’t used his cellular phone or accessed his social media accounts, and none of his loved ones have heard from him. His case remains unsolved.

NOTE: I could NOT verify some of the details in the above “Circumstances” section. So I do not vouch for the accuracy of some of the information that is found here.

“Family and police search parties, complete with canines, yielded nothing. Various alleged sightings of Cloud have turned out to be nothing more than “Big Foot and Elvis sightings,” according to his mother, Simone Zane of Lake Delton.

“Even on Facebook and other things, I would get messages that he was at a truck stop or something, and the police would go and there was nothing,” she said in an interview Wednesday. “I get my hopes up and then nothing. It’s gone on like that for three years.”

Find Missing Gene Jacob Cloud Jr!

Gene Jacob Cloud Jr has been missing for eight years. I was not able to confirm that he left behind a pregnant girlfriend when he vanished. This would be quite important. Research indicates that he missed the birth of a daughter. It annoys me when I cannot confirm important details. All that is clear to me is that this man is missing under unclear circumstances. Another source states that he was last seen running into the woods. Huh? Frankly, this is one case that confuses me.
