FBI now involved in case of missing Wake Forest man


Wake Forest police reported 63-year-old Frank Janssen missing Saturday. They say he went bike riding at 9 a.m. and returned home. When his wife came home from shopping, she discovered he was not home and became concerned when she saw what appeared to be drops of blood outside the home.

It happened at Janssen's home in the 1400 block of Sky Hill Place.

Janssen works for the government in Washington, D.C. during the week, but returns home to Wake Forest on the weekend. The FBI said their involvement in the case has nothing to do with Jansen's employment.

"The Wake Forest Police Department has requested the assistance of the FBI and the SBI to investigate the disappearance of Frank Arthur Janssen," said FBI Public Affairs Specialist Shelley Lynch. "It is standard law enforcement practice to enlist the expertise and resources of law enforcement partners as needed in investigative matters."

Janssen has had no contact with family or friends since Saturday. He has a medical condition which requires medication.

Janssen is described as a white male, 63 years of age, 5'9", 175 lbs, grey hair, and brown eyes.

Anyone who thinks they may have seen Janssen on Saturday morning or afternoon is asked to contact the Wake Forest Police Department at (919) 554-6150. Police also ask anyone who observed a suspicious vehicle or person in the vicinity of Sky Hill Place to call the police department as well.
