Rochester, MN Man is Still Missing Since December
A Rochester, Minnesota family is asking, once again, for help finding Thomas McElroy a month since he went missing. He's been missing since the early hours of December 27th, 2022.
What Happened to Thomas McElroy?
Thomas was with family on Christmas and the day after, on December 26th, his mom, Candace, dropped him off at St. Mary's "to seek treatment for alcohol use" according to KTTC. Then, according to KROC News, Thomas left St. Mary's "against medical advice" at 4:30 AM on December 27th. He was last seen near 11th Ave. NW and hasn't been seen or heard from since.
His family said that he didn't show any signs of odd behavior on Christmas, according to KTTC. However, when he left St. Mary's he only had on "a t-shirt, pants, shoes, and a thin hospital blanket" and it was about 5 degrees at the time.
Search teams and the Rochester Police Department have been searching for him. RPD has checked nearby residential and business cameras. Nothing has been found so far. The last time his phone was pinged was at St. Mary's on the morning of December 27th and his bank accounts have been inactive.
