Law enforcement searching for man missing since Friday

A Wyoming man has gone missing in western North Dakota, according to the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office.

Jared Holloway, 32, has been missing since Friday night, Deputy Kyle Grove said. He was last seen at a well site in McKenzie County, which is on his normal route, Grove added.

Holloway was driving a red Kenworth semi for Killdeer company Maxxon Energy Corp. He was hauling a silver trailer for transporting crude oil. The license number on the semi is JRW 533. The trailer’s license number is T281296, Grove said.

Holloway is described as being 6-foot-2 and 150 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes, Grove said. He also has a full beard.

Grove said there is no reason to suspect foul play in Holloway’s disappearance. The search for the man has spread across social media on multiple Facebook pages, though some posts seem to be inaccurate, Grove added.

Law enforcement agencies in other counties in western North Dakota, including McKenzie County, are also searching for Holloway.

Anyone with information leading to Holloway’s location is asked to call Grove at 701-260-5730.
