UPDATE: a report by WLUC TV6 has confirmed that Phillips has been found safe sometime between Thursday night and Friday afternoon.

In a Facebook post by Miriam Halpin, a man from Pelkie (in Baraga County) has been reported missing since late Monday night.

21-year-old Zephaniah ‘Jeff’ Phillips was last seen at the Marathon gas station at around 9:30 pm in Baraga. According to WLUC TV 6, he is described as 5’ 10”, thin build, has red hair and facial hair on him.

Halpin has asked everyone in the vicinity to be on the lookout for him and his truck. In one of the pictures above, Phillips drives a red Dodge pickup truck with a ‘Cummins’ sticker on it.

If anyone has seen Jeff or his truck or knows his whereabouts, Halpin encourages viewers to either contact her, her mutual Facebook friends listed in her post or the Baraga County Sheriff’s office.
