Le Sueur County Sheriff Brett Mason reported Tuesday afternoon that law enforcement had located and spoken with Pamela Jewison, the former Round Lake and current New Prague woman who had been reported missing days earlier.
Mason said that at approximately 2:20 p.m. Tuesday, state troopers in Idaho located Jewison traveling east in her vehicle on Interstate 90. Mason indicated that troopers stopped Jewison’s vehicle and checked her welfare. Jewison noted that she had been visiting a friend in the Seattle, Washington area. Troopers ultimately allowed Jewison to continue her travels, noting she was heading back to Minnesota.
Jewison's family had been looking for help locating her after she left home and never returned. Jeffrey Jewison of rural New Prague contacted the Le Sueur County Sheriff’s Office at about 5:23 p.m. Friday to report his wife was missing. He told the sheriff’s office that his wife had not reported to work and her whereabouts were unknown. After the family and deputies were unable to contact Pamela Jewison, she was signed/entered as a missing person.
Mason said deputies reviewed the Jewison home security system and observed Pamela leaving the residence on Friday morning, driving her 2015, silver colored GMC Yukon Denali with the license plate HJH 240. He added that the Jewison family had made contact with all family and friends, and none of them had seen or spoken with her since last week.
On Monday, the sheriff’s office deputies were contacted by the Post Falls, Idaho Police Department, which reported the city’s automated license plate reader system on Interstate 90 had collected the license plate number from Pamela’s vehicle and noted it was traveling west. In a social media post, Pamela’s daughter said her mother had left without her cell phone.
Mason noted that since law enforcement has located Jewison and checked her welfare, she is no longer considered a missing person. The investigation has been concluded.
