    MN - John Bemis, 37, Cloquet, 7 Jan 2013

    NamUs profile:

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/show/18892

    Circumstances: John left his house alone as observed by his neighbor. He left in his red GMC Sierra 1500 pickup with his Kawaski dual sport motorcycle in the bed. He did not bring his cell phone and it seems he brought no luggage or toiletries

    After digging on FB - came up with this mess:

    http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/eve...cle/id/257366/

    With Marie Margaret Majerle of Cloquet in jail, accused of shooting her current but estranged husband, Majerle’s 14-year-old daughter was at home with her father in early January.

    Then her father — John Edwin Bemis III, Majerle’s ex-husband — disappeared, according to Carlton County authorities, who charged Bemis this week with child neglect.

    “She doesn’t have her mother, and her dad has up and left without any explanation,”

    Man that's a real cluster going on. Sounds like he's on the run if he left with a lot of money but it's surely a bit of an over reaction!

    There's a Facebook group that has information on searches done and so on.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    Man Withdraws Substantial Amount Of Money, Goes Missing

    The Cloquet Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating a man who has been missing since January.

    Police say John Edwin Bemis III dropped his 14-year-old daughter off at school on Jan. 8, renewed the registration on his motorcycle and left in his pickup truck.

    Bemis, 37, withdrew a substantial amount of money before disappearing, according to authorities.

    Two days before Bemis allegedly left town, his ex-wife Marie Majerle was arrested and charged with the attempted murder of her current husband. Bemis left Cloquet that day but came back on Jan. 8, according to police.

    Bemis is not a suspect in the attempted homicide but is wanted for questioning in the incident.

    Defense argues that woman wasn’t trying to kill her husband

    The defense attorney for a Cloquet woman charged with trying to murder her husband as he sat in the sauna argued last Thursday that the charges against his client were overblown.

    Marie Margaret Majerle, 36, is accused of going to the Cloquet home of her estranged husband, Richard Alan Majerle, 38, on Jan. 6 and shooting him in the neck and shoulder area with a semi-automatic rifle. Richard Majerle was hospitalized in serious condition at Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center after the incident but was released within a few days.

    Marie Majerle is charged with attempted murder in the first degree and with removing or altering a serial number on a firearm. She pleaded not guilty.

    So they think he gave her the gun, or know about the incident before it happened? Did he leave two days before as an alibi, and maybe she didn't do the deed when he thought, so he left again afterwards? Too many questions on this one. Did he quit his job too?

    I feel so sad for the daughter with her mom in jail and her dad missing.

    From the website it sounds like he didn't quit his job as there's a comment saying it's being held for him and one more recently about his medical cover.

    I feel so sorry for the family as there doesn't appear to be a single lead. If he went riding on his bike it sounds like he liked remote areas in which case he might not be found for a long time if something happened out there.

    How sad. I guess from something I read, that he was being looked at as being somehow involved with ex-wife's issues. I thought maybe he was hiding. But the bike thing made me wonder about that. Didn't he have two bikes?

    I have a friend who lives not far from Cloquet. I feel like Mr. Bernis could be anywhere - the area is a good place to disappear.

    Found and lost again

    A Cloquet man who was reported missing by his family in January and who is wanted for questioning by law enforcement was apparently living in a state park in California until recently.

    A Cloquet man who was reported missing by his family in January and who is wanted for questioning by law enforcement was apparently living in a state park in California until recently.

    [snip]

    Then Cloquet Detective Derek Randall got a call from the family saying someone (previously unknown to the family) had been in touch with Bemis in California — where he’d been living at a state park — and came looking for him in Minnesota.

    “We contacted the sheriff’s department and parks service there [in California],” Randall said. “They checked but they were unable to find him. We belief he’d taken off prior to us being informed of his location.”

    Now he’s missing again, although at least police and his family know he was alive and well not too long ago.

    [snip]

    Bemis is not a suspect in the Majerle case at this time, Pertler said.
