Search for Goodview man continues (10/16/2005)
By Andrea Mikkelsen

     Kurtis Lee Palmquist
The search for a missing Goodview man continues, even though the Winona County Sheriff's Department admits to having no new leads in the case. Kurtis Lee Palmquist of Goodview has been missing for over three weeks, and various searches in the Winona/Goodview area have yielded no clues to his whereabouts. Palmquist, who turned 35 this Sunday, is described as a white male, approximately 5'8" and 155 pounds with blue eyes, and was last seen at around 4:00 p.m. on September 20 at a residence in Lake Village.

To date, crews from the Goodview Police, Fire, First Responders and Reserves departments have searched for Palmquist with the help of the Winona County Sheriff's Department and Mounted Posse, Community Emergency Response Team, State Patrol U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

Officials have searched Goodview Lake with cadaver dogs, a helicopter, divers and dragging equipment, and have also searched Airport Lake, Bartlett Lake and the surrounding areas.

On Friday, Kate Rogers, who is the sister of Palmquist's girlfriend, Tammy Rogers, met with Sheriff Dave Brand to share her continuing concerns about Palmquist's disappearance. "It's just so completely unlike Kurt," she said. According to Rogers, Palmquist has been known to sometimes disappear on drinking binges, but he always comes back. "He's never just disappeared like this," she said.

Rogers said that Palmquist's parents, who reside in Big Lake, visited Winona this weekend for Palmquist's birthday. "I think they just wanted to be close, you know, with family," she said. None of Palmquist's relatives or friends have been contacted, Rogers added, and frustration and anxiety are beginning to take their toll. "It's been very hard on us. I just want everyone to know we're really, really worried," she said.

Rogers, who lives in Fountain City, described her close relationship with Palmquist as "like a brother." "He's my sister's boyfriend, so I've just thought of him as a brother for the past seven to eight years," she said.

In an effort to aid search efforts, Rogers is currently distributing flyers with a recent photo of Palmquist and phone numbers for the agencies to contact with information. She explained that she is posting the flyers in Kwik Trips and Conocos around the area in the hopes that someone will have seen Palmquist or will come forward with new information.

Anyone with information on Palmquist is asked to contacts the Goodview Police Department, (507) 452-1500, Crimestoppers, (507) 457-6530) or the Sheriff's Department (507) 457-6368.
