LINCOLN COUNTY, Wis. (WSAW) - The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is searching a home near Tomahawk for a man missing since November of 2021.

The Sheriff’s Office says David Lee Strahota was last seen near a property on State Highway 86, west of Tomahawk. The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office started an extensive search on that property Wednesday.

In April, the sheriff’s office asked the public for help locating Strahota. At that time, they said he was last heard from around November 17, 2021. He told friends that he was going hunting down south for a couple of weeks and he requested a friend take care of his animals while he was gone. According to friends Strahota was vague about his exact location or who if anyone he would be with. One possible location may be the Fox Valley in eastern Wisconsin. Friends indicated that it is not normal for Strahota to be gone for such a long period of time and they are concerned because he does have health issues.

No other information is being released at this time.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is being assisted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice, the Merrill Police Department, the Tomahawk Police Department, the Tomahawk Fire Department and K9s from Canine Search Solutions.

This is an ongoing investigation.
