FMPD looking for help in missing veteran

Golliher has been missing for close to a year.


FORT MADISON - The Fort Madison Police Department, along with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI), are seeking the public’s assistance investigating the disappearance of Christopher M. Golliher, age 36, of Fort Madison.
Golliher was last seen February 1st, 2022, at his residence in the 2000 block of Avenue E, and was subsequently reported missing after several days by a concerned family member.
Golliher, Jr., of Fort Madison, was reported missing by his mother Michelle Shelton of Keokuk, on Feb. 7, after hearing from his roommates that her son had left his home without a coat, his wallet, or any belongings.
At that time, Golliher's father Chris Sr. said his son had run into some legal troubles, but said the disappearance with all the other evidence wasn't in character.
Golliher, Sr., said there has been no activity in his son's bank account since his disappearance. He said he wasn't notified by family or the police until the middle of March about their son's disappearance.
"I don't expect the outcome to be good," Golliher  said.
"It's the money. There's been no movement at all in his bank account."
Nearly a year has now passed without any contact, and despite enlisting the resources of the DCI, all current traceable leads have been exhausted.
Officials are now asking property owners in the city, and those on the near edge of town, to check accessible areas and buildings on their premises for anything of possible evidentiary value. This would include unused buildings, sheds, vehicles, or houses that are unoccupied. It is reminded to only enter or check these items if they are owned by you.
Should you find something that is possibly useful or suspicious, please do not disturb or touch the items, and contact the Fort Madison Police Department Detective Bureau at 319-372-2525, extension 211.
