Milwaukee police still searching for local veteran

Declared critically missing

MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Milwaukee police are searching for 45-year-old Corey Adams of Milwaukee who was last seen at his parents' house 10 days ago.

The critically missing veteran has not been seen since he left the house near 54th Street and Capitol Drive on March 20. He left a majority of his personal belongings there.
 
A day full of rain didn't stop the Adams' from continuing their search on Thursday. Adams' mother and sister went door-to-door, and business to business with flyers in hand to find the missing veteran.

"It has just been an emotional rollercoaster," said mother Gwendolyn Adams. "On one hand you want to be strong and then on the other hand the fact that he’s not here."
 
The family has received hundreds of calls from friends and family across the country. Police have even gotten tips on possible sightings.

"Every time the phone rings or we get a text message or anything like that of a possible tip, I jump up and go," said sister Carmen Adams.
 
They’ve searched around the VA hospital, Miller Park and his neighborhood to no avail.
 
"He’s not there and it’s just disappointing and hurtful," said Adams.
 
Adams is an Air Force veteran and Milwaukee native who suffers from PTSD and Bipolar disorder.
 
"Since 2014 was when we really started to see a drastic change in him," Carmen said..
 
Adam's sister said the man many know as a great father, grandfather, brother and son is now acting out of character and without a trace. He hasn’t used his phone or bank account since his disappearance.
 
"If you’ve seen him please reach out to us or the Sensitive Crimes Unit so we can bring him back home," Carmen said.

A large search party plans to gather at the McDonald's on Miller Park Way Friday at 5:30 p.m. to pass out flyers. Everyone is invited to join in their canvassing efforts.
 
Adams is 6'4" and around 200 pounds. If you know of his whereabouts, you’re asked to call police.
