Search continues for missing Cottage Grove native Jamie Wylie
Cottage Grove Minnesota 7584 80th Street South 55016

The search for missing Cottage Grove native Jamie Wylie in central Minnesota stretched into a third week with no sight of him.

Wylie, 31, was last seen at a friend’s house in St. Cloud on the afternoon of Dec. 9. Relatives reported him missing Dec. 15.


“We are continuing to look for him,” Foley Police Chief Katie McMillin said last week.

Wylie’s wife and young son live in Foley, Minn., northeast of St. Cloud, but he had no permanent address.

McMillin said police were told Wylie left his friend’s apartment upset and hasn’t been seen since. He did not have a car at the apartment, and it’s not clear how he left.

McMillin declined to discuss details of the search but said her department and the Benton County Sheriff’s Office are investigating.

“We’re talking with the people that had last contact with Jamie,” McMillin said.

Friends and relatives of Wylie have searched for Wylie, posted information about him and made small memory ribbons to distribute. A network of people are following the search on a “Find Jamie Wylie” Facebook group.

Their searches are separate from the law enforcement investigation, McMillin said.

Anyone with information about Wylie’s whereabouts is asked to call the Foley Police Department at 320-968-0800 or 320-968-7201.
