Detassler Missing For A Week

Posted by wlpo on July 26, 2011

A week since he went missing, police say they’re still searching for a migrant corn detassler.

36 year old Humberto Sanchez was last seen getting a drink of water last Tuesday morning while detassling corn south of Rock Falls.  Investigators aren’t sure if he just left the job or fell victim to the extreme heat.

Sanchez is among a large group of migrant workers detassling corn in Whiteside County who have been staying in Spring Valley.

If you have information about Sanchez, call the Whiteside County Sheriff’s Department.
