The search continues for the northeast Wisconsin brothers who disappeared over the weekend while on a business trip in Missouri.

The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office says a rental car being used by Nicholas Diemel and Justin Diemel was found Monday abandoned in a commuter parking lot in Holt. The two men had been to Caldwell and Clinton counties on business. No other details were released about the men’s disappearance.

Nicholas Diemel’s wife, Lisa, said that she last spoke to her husband on Sunday. She said the brothers own a livestock a company and were visiting farms in Missouri Saturday.

"It’s draining, it’s just on your mind, 24/7,” said Lisa. “Not sleeping, can’t eat. I think it’s our children that are keeping me going."

She said her husband said the brothers were going to someone’s house to look at calves Sunday. She knew something was wrong when the brothers didn’t get make their return flight later that day.

"Just want someone to find him and bring him home. Both of them,” said Taylor Moeller, Justin’s girlfriend.
