MASON CITY, Iowa – As the search for a missing Mason City man continues, police are releasing a few more details in the search for 27-year-old Alonzo Higgins, who is believed to have taken a bus bound for Minneapolis on Oct. 1.
Police said Higgins wrote a note that he was going to Minneapolis/St. Paul for a church seminar, but police said those organizations are unaware of any sponsored events in the timeframe.
Alonzo also expressed some possible paranoid beliefs in a second letter delivered to a different location during the Oct. 1-6 timeframe, police said.
A medical condition may also be contributing to the “unusual” events of his disappearance, police said Wednesday morning.
“We do not believe that he is a danger to others but suspect he may be taken advantage of in his current state, or at risk due to weather conditions if homeless,” police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Mason City police at 641-421-3636.
