31-year-old Bemidji man goes missing
Pulis was last seen with two men at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday as he walked away from the Toasty Beavers bar.
Pulis, who did not show up for work Monday and missed a Wednesday appointment to refill his antidepressant medication, sent a text at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday to a friend in Chicago. It was the last time anyone heard from him.
Pulis is described as 5-foot-9, about 180 pounds, with chin-length brown hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Bemidji Police Department at (218) 333-9111.
Pulis’ ATM card was used at about 8:30 p.m. Monday to withdraw $60 cash in Bemidji, his sister, Steph Kniefel said.
According to the Facebook group, Help Us Find Matt Pulis, Bemidji police are working with Wells Fargo to obtain video surveillance of the ATM transaction.
Police also are reviewing video surveillance from downtown bars, the Facebook group reported.
Bemidji Police Chief Mike Mastin did not provide any additional details Thursday.
