La Crosse police searched the city’s downtown for hours early Saturday for a missing drunken man before he showed up safe at Third and Pearl streets.
Anthony Willison’s girlfriend reported him missing after he left Bronco’s bar on Third Street about 2 a.m. to vomit and did not return, according to reports.
He told her via cellphone that he was in the Market Square parking ramp but she could not find Willison, 28, after searching all of the downtown ramps.
Officers searched for Willison, of Onalaska, with the help of dispatchers, who said his cell phone indicated he was near 200 S. Third St., reports state.
Willison turned up about 7:15 a.m. and told officers he was too drunk to remember most of Friday evening and Saturday morning.
He said he spent early Saturday in a heated part of the Grand River Station until he woke and walked to Third and Pearl streets, according to reports.
He had a 0.05 percent alcohol level.
