Man Missing After Single-Vehicle Accident in Ashland, Authorities Say
Initial reports indicate that alcohol could have been a factor in the accident and that Rosin may have been disoriented upon exiting, officials said.
ASHLAND, Wis.- Authorities are on the lookout for a 32-year-old man who allegedly left his vehicle after a rollover crash just south of Ashland.
According to the Ashland County Sheriff’s Office, early Friday morning the Ashland County Communications Center received a report of single vehicle roll-over accident in the town of Gingles, just south of the City of Ashland.
Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the scene and located a vehicle on its roof. No one was located with the vehicle or in the area around the scene nor was anyone located at the local hospital.
Currently, investigators believe the operator of the vehicle was Kevin Rosin (32, Odanah) who, after the crash, left the scene.
Rosin’s phone was recovered with the vehicle. Initial reports indicate that alcohol could have been a factor in the accident and that Rosin may have been disoriented upon exiting, officials said.
Family members reported that Rosin had not returned home later in the morning of the 26th nor had he made any known contact with others, according to authorities.
The Sheriff’s Office conducted ground searches Friday, and search activities continue Saturday with the assistance of the Ashland Police Department, the Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission, US Customs & Border Patrol, Bad River Tribal wardens, Sawyer County Search & Rescue, the Bayfield County Sheriff’s Office, the WI Department of Natural Resources, and volunteer searchers from the community.
Authorities say the highest priority is locating Rosin and checking his welfare. The Ashland County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information as to his whereabouts to contact the Ashland County Communications Center at (715) 682-7023.
Investigative efforts are ongoing and further information will be released when available.
