  • Details of Disappearance
    Strege was reported missing by his father on October 11, 2002. When his father went to his apartment to see why he was not answering the telephone, he found Jerrold's apartment unlocked, lights on and the television on. All of Jerrold's belongings were in the apartment including his keys, wallet, cell phone, etc. Both of his vehicles were still in the garage located at his apartment complex. No signs of any type of disturbance could be seen in the apartment.

    It was found, through investigation, the last time anyone had seen Strege was on his last day of work at Dodge Correctional Institution on October 2, 2002. He was scheduled to be back to work on October 8, 2002, but never showed up or called. This triggered his employer and father to begin looking for him. Many searches have been conducted by volunteers, search teams, canines and police personnel, but no sign of Strege could be found.

    Strege was an avid, highly skilled amateur golfer and in fact had been planning to compete in a golf tournament on the weekend of October 5 and 6, 2002. This perplexed many of his golfing friends since he was looking forward to playing in this tournament.
