BAXTER — The search for a missing Baxter woman continued Friday, police reported.

The Baxter Police Department asked for the public's help in locating Jessie Eue, 53, who went missing from her Baxter residence sometime after 8:30 p.m. on the evening of Tuesday, May 17.

Law enforcement believes Eue walked away from her residence on Golf Course Drive, where she resides with her mother.

Eue is considered a healthy individual with no known medical conditions and left no indications behind of potential destinations, police said.

Law enforcement suspects no foul play at this time and continues to work with family and friends in locating Eue.


“There was nothing to indicate where or when she left,” Baxter Police Chief Jim Exsted said. He added she may have left the residence due to “insurmountable personal problems.”

After her vehicle was found at the residence, an extensive search of the area around the home was conducted by the Baxter Police Department with the assistance of the Crow Wing County Drone Team, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and volunteers from Central Lakes Search and Rescue, a K-9 Search and Rescue group.

If anyone has seen or knows the whereabouts of Eue they are asked to call 911 or the Baxter Police Department at 218-454-5090.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
