A trial has been scheduled to begin this fall for a couple charged in a decades long social security fraud case.

Last August, the Portage County Sheriff's Department sent out a news release asking for the public's help locating Marie Jost, 100, and her son Theodore, 74. Shortly after, Marie's son, Charles, daughter, Dolores Disher and Dolores' husband, Ronald were all charged with theft and fraud after investigators say they cashed $175,000 worth of Marie's social security checks. Investigators says the three also changed their story when questioned about Marie and Theodore's whereabouts.

Ronald and Delores will face a judge together during a jury trial scheduled to last five days, beginning October 21.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts or last know location of either Marie or Theodore Jost is urged to contact the Portage County Sheriff’s Office at (715) 346-1400. Detectives are working to put together a time line of the last time the two were heard from.
