Kenneth M Plaisted

Updated: Jan 9, 2022

On November 16th 1971, Kenneth and his wife traveled from their home in New Holstein to Milwaukee, WI. His wife did some shopping in the city, while Kenneth had plans to attend a business meeting and then had scheduled a lunch date at noon with his daughter, who was attending Marquette University. Kenneth was supposed to pick up his wife later that afternoon.

Kenneth attended his business meeting that day, but never arrived for lunch and was never seen or heard from again.

When Kenneth didn't arrive for their lunch plans, his daughter, looked out her window and had saw that his car was parked by the curb. Kenneth was not in his car - the vehicle was unlocked, and the windows were rolled down, the keys were missing, and the glove box was open and rifled through. His hat was found smashed in a gutter nearby.

Kenneth is a Navy Veteran, has 6 children and was 48 years old at the time of his disappearance. He was 6'1" at 165lbs with gray hair and blue eyes. He had a scar on his right hand. He was wearing a gold ring with a square diamond in the center, a silver or gold ring with a black stone etched with the head of a helmeted Roman soldier, and possibly a silver or gold watch.

His case remains unsolved.
