Austrian rider missing - Maine, US

Saw this post on ADV:

Yesterday at 8:45 PM

Sheriffs, wardens search for missing motorcyclist

The Austrian tourist was last seen north of Moosehead Lake.

The Associated Press


DOVER-FOXCROFT — The Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Department and Maine Warden Service are searching for an Austrian tourist who disappeared on an extended motorcycle trip.


Officials say 25-year-old Johannes Stummer was last seen on March 22 in Big Moose Township, north of Moosehead Lake. He was reported missing Friday after he failed to return to the Moose Mountain Inn in Greenville.
Investigator Allen Emerson of the sheriff’s department told the Bangor Daily News on Wednesday that Stummer rode his motorcycle throughout Europe last year and planned to tour the U.S. this year. He arrived on March 1 and traveled through Vermont and part of Canada.
He has been traveling on a black Suzuki motorcycle bearing an Austrian license plate. He’s described as 5-foot-9 and 120 pounds, with short blond hair.
