WHEREABOUTS UNKNOWN — The second-oldest missing person case in Wisconsin originated in the Town of Oakland on May 1, 1947. Eight-year-old Georgia Jean Weckler was last seen after being dropped off at the end of her family’s farm driveway by a family friend. Numerous leads have been pursued through the years, but no suspect ever formally was arrested and no remains were ever found. Weckler’s case is one of four open missing cases in Jefferson County. — Daily Union photos by Ryan Whisner.
