The Lafayette County Wisconsin Sheriff’s Department is searching for two missing teens, including one 16-year-old from McHenry.

Alexander Rogers, 16, of McHenry, was last seen with Katherine Heimann, 16, of Gratiot, Wisconsin, about 2:30 a.m. Friday.

Rogers is a white male, 6-foot-2, about 180 pounds, with brown hair. Heimann is a white female, 5-foot-3, about 115 pounds with blonde hair.

According to a news release from the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department, "Alexander left his residence in McHenry, Illinois, and went to Katherine’s residence south of Gratiot, WI, and picked her up at approximately 0230-0245 hours on Friday, Aug. 7, 2020. Alexander was driving his black 2000 Ford Ranger with Illinois registration.

"Their direction of travel is unknown, however they may have ties to vacation properties of acquaintances in the Hayward, WI, area.

"There is no reason at this time to believe Katherine went against her will, however she didn’t appear to take many personal belongings with her, including her cell phone. Family and friends have reason to believe her safety will be more in jeopardy the longer that she is away from home."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Office at 608-776-4870.
