Missing In-Fisherman Staffer - Any Help Appreciated

Recommended Posts

Click Here to see picture and more details.

In-Fisherman is asking for our help in locating Ryan Hamre:

Here is the request:

A staff person at In-Fisherman is reported missing and a friend of mind call this morning asking for help in getting this poster out. I do not know if this is something that Fishing Minnesota can help with or not but I didn’t think it would hurt to ask.

Friday a.m., Brainerd

Thanks to the efforts of the entire staff here in Brainerd, the story became a statewide story on Wed. evening on all major media. Apparently, that result must have lit the flame under the MN Bureau of Criminal Apprehension in St. Paul, as well as local authorities, because beginning Thursday morning this area was buzzing with state and local law enforcement action including in-depth interviews with people like Ryan’s parents, and me.

Ryan made a credit card purchase at about 2 a.m. Saturday morning in Winona, MN, 250 miles south of here and his image is on a security camera at that location. That was new information yesterday. Since he was also seen on the security camera in Rice, MN, 50 miles south of here at 6 am that morning, it is apparent he was headed north at a brisk rate.

Likely as a result of this sudden interest by the authorities yesterday, their in-depth look and the help of media, and our efforts, Ryan’s vehicle was reported Thursday afternoon by a cabin owner in northern Minnesota who reported the truck parked at a neighboring cabin 20 miles from the town of Ely, Minnesota, one of the last stops on the way into the Boundary Waters Canoe area in far Northeastern Minnesota. A man fitting Ryan’s description had been seen on at least one of the days previous, but had not been seen yesterday.

Ryan’s parents and authorities arrived on the scene late last night but Ryan was not found at the cabin, though his keys were in the parked truck. There were signs that he had slept in the cabin, and a bow was found there also. The cabin turns out to be that of a friend of Ryan’s from Brainerd, a hunting buddy, who had no knowledge that Ryan was there.

According to my contact at the BCA, this morning, state and local authorities are searching via helicopter and ground searches in local towns and hamlets near the cabin to try and locate Ryan. They remain concerned about his welfare and are trying to determine if he is in harm’s way. They are hoping for a happy ending.

They did tell me that they had information they could not release to me, and I have no idea what that might be.

That’s all I know at this time. There are plenty of rumors flying around, but none are confirmed and the information I have given you includes all the facts released to this point.

We have distributed a new poster to sources in northern Minnesota in the last hour. We have removed his truck from the former poster and provided the new information about his last confirmed location.

The BCA contact told me that, in his judgment, Ryan had not, nor would not harm himself.

Thanks for your concern.

Just learned last night that Ryan has been found and reunited with his parents, though details are sketchy right now. He suffered minor frostbite but otherwise seems okay.

Thanks for your prayers and concern,

Very good news!

Sounds like he went up to a cabin near the BWCA and got turned around or lost or something in the woods.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
