The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is reopening a case of a man that has been missing for nearly 37 years.
21-year-old Harry Milligan was out with friends in Albia’s business district in the early morning hours of July 1st, 1984, according to reports. He was last seen getting into a maroon 1977 Pontiac Grand Prix and driving north on Main Street. Milligan’s destination was believed to be his parents’ home in Avery but he never arrived. Additionally, Harry’s vehicle was never recovered.
