UPDATE 5:15 AM Tuesday, April 17th
Dauphin Island Police say 60-year-old Carl Ishee was found dead just before midnight Monday night. Officer Jonathan Waite says Ishee’s body was discovered by his son one mile north of the Dauphin Island bridge on Highway 193.
The body was found in the bushes and could not be seen from the main road very easily, that’s why it took so long to find him. Officer Waite says this appears to be an accident. State Troopers with ALEA are also part of the investigation.
Dauphin Island Police are searching for a biker who vanished after hanging out with friends on the island. 60-year-old Carl Ishee went for a ride to Fins Bar Thursday night. Friends say he was leaving to go home about half past midnight. He hasn’t been seen since.
Ishee’s son, Justin Ishee , tells News 5 that he sees his father almost every day. Carl Ishee actually lives with his son just off the Island, a 10 minute ride from Fins. Justin Ishee filed a missing person report with Dauphin Island PD. Police tell News 5 that Carl Ishee was wearing a cut-off Harley Davidson t-shirt, jeans and black boots when he was last seen.
Although he was last seen at a bar, Ishee’s son says he’s not much of a drinker. The son tells News 5 he has access to his father’s bank account and there has been no new activity since Thursday. Mr. Ishee’s bike is a 2000 Harley Davidson Softail with a custom blue pearl paint job.
Justin Ishee asks if you have any information to call him at 251-591-1930, or call Dauphin Island Police.
