Missing Iowa Man, Mark Riesberg, located in Jolley

Amanda Rink, Editor


The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office has officially reported the discovery of Mark Riesberg in Jolley, Iowa. He was found inside a vehicle with an evident gunshot wound, as stated in the official release. Although foul play is not suspected, an ongoing investigation is being conducted to rule it out. 


According to Mary Brown, Mark's sister, Riesberg's last known communication was a text message to his boss. Brown finds the circumstances of her brother's disappearance unnerving. In a brief conversation with the Wright County Monitor, she shared that she believes he must have gotten out of bed in the middle of the night, judging by the state of his bed.


Brown assumes her brother left his bed to assist someone who came to his door. Riesberg’s home is along Highway 20 outside of Lytton. Mark had been missing since October 28, 2023.
