Police: Missing man has been found safe
(ABC 6 News) – According to Rochester police, Timothy Ramsey has been located and is safe. His family has been notified.
(ABC 6 News) – The urgent search begins for a missing Kansas City man known to live around Rochester.
44-year-old Timothy Ramsey is a father of three daughters and loved by his family. They are still in their hometown back in Missouri, but Ramsey was last seen in southern Minnesota.
ABC 6 News spoke with Ramsey’s daughter, Sicilee, Thursday afternoon. She says he’s been estranged from the family and has a substance abuse problem.
Family members say Ramsey has been in and out of jail. But has also been in and out of sober houses, trying to get better.
Sicilee says her father regularly calls and stays in contact. She says drugs have changed him, but no matter what, his family still loves him and just wants to know he’s safe.
“He’s not a contributing member of society. We know that he has not been the best person, but we also know that he is lost and he’s a human being and he does have a family that loves him. We remember him for the person that we know he is, not the person that drugs have made him,” Timothy’s daughter Sicilee Ramsey said.
The Rochester Police Department put out this missing persons notice Thursday saying that Ramsey was reported missing Wednesday by his family.
Sicilee says she’s disappointed they used his mugshot and she’s afraid the public won’t really look out for Ramsey if they only see him as a criminal.
“It was super upsetting. Super upsetting. That’s still not fair to his family to portray him that way,” Sicilee said.
Ramsey’s family last heard from him in January. He was recently seen near Rochester, and in Goodhue County and possibly in Polk County, Wisconsin.
