The body of Jamie Wylie, 31, of Foley, was found Tuesday on a roadside in Benton County, east of St. Cloud.

Wylie had been missing since December.

The Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Wylie’s death a homicide Wednesday, according to WCCO.

He was last seen at a friend’s residence in St. Cloud on Dec. 9, and relatives reported him missing Dec. 15.

Foley Police Chief Katie McMillin said in December that police were told Wylie left his friend’s apartment upset. He did not have a car at the apartment, and it was unclear how he left.

Authorities are seeking the public’s help in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the Benton County Sheriff’s Office at 320-986-7201 or the Tri-County Crime Stoppers at 800-255-1301.
