Prosecutor Goes Missing

A state juvenile court prosecutor from Tolland disappeared last week and Connecticut state police are searching for him.

Joseph Kristan Jr., 59, who works at juvenile court in Rockville, was last seen at his home Jan. 15, and his car is missing, troopers said.

Kristan's wife, Rhona, told the Journal Inquirer of Manchester that her husband was not depressed and his disappearance is completely out of the ordinary.

Kristan was last seen wearing a baseball cap and a black down jacket.

He might be driving a red 1989 Chrysler convertible with Connecticut license plate 599-UBA, police said. He's described as white, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 178 pounds, with glasses and a goatee. He also has a 4-inch scar on the back of his head, police said.

State police have entered information about the case to a nationwide missing person's database.
