MILWAUKEE -- Members of the Milwaukee Police Dive Rescue Team used sonar on the Milwaukee River on Thursday, January 3rd in their search for 24-year-old Nick Wilcox.

Wilcox was last seen outside the Irish Rec Room on Old World 3rd St. early Tuesday morning, January 1st. Wilcox was out celebrating on New Year’s Eve with friends, when he reportedly left the bar and hasn't been seen since.

The sonar indicated there was something under the water near Juneau Ave. But after the dive team went in, they found nothing but a table, a shopping cart and a tree. 

Milwaukee police are urging anyone with information to contact the Sensitive Crimes Division at 414-935-7403.
