WEST SALEM, Wis. (WEAU) -- West Salem Police are looking for a young man missing from West Salem.

Police took to Facebook on Friday morning to share that they are looking for Jacob Schwalbach.

Officers say he took off from the 500 block of Driftwood Street in the middle of the night wearing only a t-shirt and blue jeans. Police are asking residents that live in the neighborhoods north of the West Salem Schools to check their yards, garages, vehicles, sheds and anywhere else this man may have decided to hide overnight.
