    A major search led by the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Department is underway for a 24-year-old man who disappeared near downtown Cedarburg in the early-
morning hours of Thursday, Dec. 27.

    Fire and rescue crews from Cedarburg, Grafton and Theinsville, along with the Cedarburg Police Department and the Great Lakes Search and Rescue K-9 unit, are assisting the sheriff’s department in the search.

    Undersheriff Jim Johnson said Robert Steinbrecker, a graduate of Cedarburg High School, left Maxwell’s Bar with friends and was last seen running north on the ice on Cedar Creek around 2 a.m.

    Crews are walking through the woods and along the banks of the river and using underwater cameras to check the deeper portions of Cedar Creek, Johnson said.

    The Sheriff’s Department also used the My State USA program to send reverse 911 calls to approximately 95 area residents, alerting them of the missing person search.

    Residents near Cedar Creek have been asked to check their properties for any signs of Steinbrecker.

    Steinbrecker was last seen wearing a green and gold knit Green Bay Packers hat, a heavy, dark green parka jacket, a blue T-shirt, brown pants and black tennis shoes with white trim on the soles.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Department at 284-7172 and reference incident number 12-35179.
