Nick and Justin Diemel from Wisconsin were last known to be visiting the Nelson farm in Missouri. They owned their own cattle business in Shawano County and had come to the Nelson farm for a cattle deal but never returned home.
The Nelson farm located in Braymer, Missouri was searched extensively but the Diemel brothers have not been located.
Friday, Garland “Joey” Nelson, 25, was arrested and appeared in Court on Monday where the Judge held him without bond after he allegedly drove the Diemel brother’s rental truck and abandoned it last week in Holt. Documents say Nelson was arrested after he admitting to ditching the truck in another Missouri county, according to Fox News. Previously, Nelson had served two years in prison for selling cattle that he didn’t own, Fox4KC reported. Authorities believe he was doing the same thing again, and selling cattle he did not have to the Diemel brothers.
The Green Bay Press Gazette reports:
“GPS information from the truck’s black box shows the vehicle arrived around 9:30 a.m. July 21 at Nelson’s Catawba Road address, near Braymer, after leaving a hotel in Cameron, Missouri, around 8:50 a.m. The hotel confirmed Nicholas and Justin signed out Sunday morning, according to the affidavit. At 11:44 a.m. July 21, the truck left Nelson’s address. At 12:18 p.m. and 12:19 July 21, the truck was recorded passing by security cameras in Polo, Missouri, and “there appears to be no passenger in the front passenger seat,” the affidavit states. At 12:45 p.m., the truck entered the commuter lot in Holt and was ‘left running with the keys in the ignition and lights on.'”
The authorities have concluded that the Diemel brothers are likely deceased and continue to search for their location.
