FORT TOTTEN, ND - Police are asking hunters to be on the lookout for a missing dad whose case has baffled them for months.

38-year-old Joseph Bruce, Sr. has not been heard from since June.

The Grand Forks father of 5 told his family he was on his way to the hospital after learning his son suffered a medical emergency - Bruce never made it.

His minivan with the keys in it was found a few days later near a slough in Fort Totten.

Police believe foul play may be involved.

They are asking hunters to check out buildings and keep an eye out for anything suspicious on the 245,000 acre Spirit Lake Reservation.

"The problems is we aren't sure where he may be located, there's a large area where he could possibly be," said Detective Sue Schwab, with the Devils Lake Police Department.

If you find anything or know anything about the disappearance of Joseph Bruce you are asked to call the police.
