Cloquet police are asking for the public’s help in locating a man wanted for questioning in an attempted first-degree murder investigation.
John Edwin Bemis III, 37, is not a suspect in the case, but is a possible witness, authorities say. He was last seen Monday; his family reported him missing on Wednesday.
Bemis is white, 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighs 180 pounds and has brown hair and green eyes. Authorities said they believe Bemis is traveling in a 2005 red GMC Sierra extended-cab pickup truck with a Minnesota “Support Our Troops” license plate numbered 140DH and has a 2009 red Kawasaki Enduro motorcycle with Minnesota plates 60170MG.
Records indicated that Bemis lives at the same address that court records give for Marie Margaret Majerle, 36. Majerle was charged Tuesday with attempted murder in the first degree for allegedly shooting her estranged husband.
Anyone with information on Bemis’ whereabouts is asked to call the Cloquet Police Department at (218) 879-1247, or the Carlton County Sheriff’s Office at (218) 384-4185 or 911.
