Missing Bill

Local Business Owner Reported Missing

Update 4-11/18

Last week the Clare County Sheriff Department had asked news outlets and the public for assistance in finding Bill Rouech, age 50. Mr. Rouech was found deceased in Roscommon County on Sunday, April 8 after a tip identifying the location of his vehicle. There is no suspected foul play.

Harrison business owner Bill Rouech is missing, and his family is desperate to find him. He was last seen Monday, March 26 at his business, the Long Lake Party store on N. Clare Avenue, Harrison. His cell phone was last used in the Meredith Grade area of Gladwin county, west of M-18. He may be headed north.

Rouech’s daughter, Elizabeth, told the Cleaver she is in daily contact with the Clare County Sheriff Department, and said she is grateful for their efforts.

“They are moving forward with the case in every way that they can,” she said. “We are hoping and praying for his safe return. Too many days have passed without word or a sighting. Any tip, no matter how small, could help us bring him home.”

She has also put her plea on Facebook hoping to cast a wide net to find her father or any information about his whereabouts.

Mr. Rouech may be driving a Pewter 2004 half-ton Quadra steer Chevy Silverado, with no topper and margaritaville/palm tree stickers on the side windows. PLATE NUMBER DTY8196.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Clare County Sheriff's Department at 989-539-7166.
