Human remains found in a burned down hunting stand in Juneau County are those of a missing Windsor man.

The deceased subject has been identified as Gary J. Wojtowicz. The incident remains under investigation. Foul play is not suspected and there is no danger to the community.

According to a press release from the Juneau County Sheriff's Department, Juneau County Deputies were dispatched Sunday at approximately 10:53 a.m. to rural Plymouth Township to check on the welfare of a subject after being notified that a Windsor man who suffered from mental illness had not been in contact with family since Friday, Sept. 13. That day, he unexpectedly left his home.

Family had located the missing man’s vehicle on their private hunting land along Von Haden Rd. in Plymouth Township. It was unoccupied and, according to the sheriff’s department report, the family did not know where he was.

Utilizing a tracking K-9, deputies searched the rural property and located what appeared to be a burned down hunting stand. Within it were human remains believed to be that of the missing man.

Assisting the sheriff’s office at the scene were the Union Center Police Department and the Juneau County Medical Examiner’s Office.
