HIBBING, MN (KDAL) - The St. Louis County Sheriff's Department is asking for the public's help in finding a missing Hibbing man. About 4:30 p-m on Thursday, 32 year old Theodore Wilen was a passenger in a vehicle on Highway 53 in the Canyon area when he demanded to get out of the car and ran into the woods. Sheriff deputies and the Rescue Squad conducted an extensive and unsuccessful search of the area that was suspended shortly after midnight. It is believed Wilen, who suffers from some mental health issues, may have had contact with another motorist or resident in the area. Anyone with information is asked to contact 9-1-1. Wilen was wearing a white tank top, dark jeans and tennis shoes. He has several tattoos including his last name across his back.
UPDATE: Wilken was found safe Friday morning. According to authorities he came out of the woods on his own and hitchhiked to his home in Hibbing.
