WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) _ Authorities say they have not ruled out foul play in the disappearance of a Williston-area rancher.
Fifty-eight-year-old Jack Sjol (shohl) hasn't been seen since April 24. Sgt. Detective Caleb Fry with the Williams County Sheriff's Office says there is evidence of a violent crime but authorities aren't elaborating while they continue to investigate.
Fry says Sjol might still be alive, but authorities have not ruled out homicide either. He says there are no suspects in the disappearance.
Authorities have been searching for Sjol both on the ground and from the air. Fry says numerous law agencies are involved.
Sjol has lived in the Williston area for 30 years. He worked for Williston public works about 25 years before retiring two years ago. He isn't married and has two grown children.
