POLK COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s helping finding a man last seen driving a yellow motorcycle on Sunday, June 28.

Just after 6:30 p.m. Sunday, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch Center received a call of a missing motorcyclist.

The report was for 40-year-old Andre Lyons from the rural Amery.

Lyons had not been seen nor heard from since approximately 1 a.m. on June 28.

During the investigation, deputies with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office attempted to gain cell phone information to locate Lyons. That information led the Sheriff’s Office to contact surrounding counties requesting assistance.

However, no further information, nor Andre Lyons were discovered.

During the course of this incident, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office investigator assigned to this case found the Andre Lyons had left a home near the Polk/St. Croix County line and was last seen traveling north on Hwy 35 in Polk County.

Information was given that Lyons was going to be traveling home, which is north of Amery.

Investigations staff and patrol deputies scoured the area of routes possibly taken by Lyons, but have been unable to locate him, or his 2000 Honda CBR900 motorcycle, which is yellow in color. He was also wearing a white helmet at that time.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office will be aided in the search for Lyons by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources with its fixed wing air craft.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is requesting any information that may lead to locating Andre Lyons.

Please contact 715-485-8300 if you may have happened to be in the Farmington or Amery area and had noticed a motorcycle traveling between those locations during the early morning hours of Sunday, June 28.
