A 46 year old Wood County man is being held in jail, in connection with the alleged abductions of two other men. Law enforcement officials are investigating information that the two men were taken against their will and held involuntarily. One of the men, identified by family members as 23 year-old Keith Kautz of Grand Rapids, was last seen Friday, after telling friends he was going to walk home from Fourth of July Fireworks in Wisconsin Rapids. Kautz and the other unidentified man were found at a residence in the Town of Saratoga.
A press release from Wood County Sheriff Thomas Reichert states that his department is investigating the case, along with the Wisconsin Rapids and Grand Rapids police departments.
