Police have found the missing Glencoe man they were searching for after finding his unoccupied car on Monday afternoon.
At about 8 :15 pm on Tuesday a citizen in Morrison County observed a person matching the description of Kopf on Highway 25 near Pierz. Morrison County deputies responded to the area and were able to locate Kopf. Kopf was taken into custody without incident and is currently being held in the Morrison County Jail.
According to the police report, at about 3:30 p.m. on Monday the Benton County Sheriff’s Office were called to the 8500 block of 55th Avenue Northeast in Mayhew Lake Township for a suspicious vehicle complaint. The vehicle was found in a swampy field not far from the road. A registration check revealed that the car belonged to 26-year-old Nicholas Kopf of Glencoe.
According to police, due to recent events in Kopf’s life, Kopf had reportedly been experiencing emotional issues which had caused him to develop anti-law enforcement and anti-government beliefs. Kopf had also reportedly made statements that he was in possession of several weapons and that he would resist any attempt by government and law enforcement to make contact with him. A search of the area around the car was conducted and Kopf was not located. It is believed that Kopf left the area on foot and may have been intending to travel to the Brainerd area or other points north of Benton County.
