Authorities are searching for an Upper Peninsula woman who went missing after attending a Memorial Day weekend music festival.

Jody Lynn Newberry was reported missing on May 29. Her sister told police the 54-year-old had traveled from her home in Bergland to Mellen, Wisconsin on Thursday, May 24 to attend the “Mellen Jam” music festival.

Her sister was worried because the festival had ended and Jody had not returned home, nor called family.

Investigators learned Jody traveled to the festival with a male companion when he said the two became separated. The man told police the last contact he had with Jody was around noon on Saturday, May 26.

Jody is described as 5’3” tall and approximately 115 pounds. She has long brown hair, several missing teeth, a skin tag on her nose and usually wears wire rimmed glasses.

The “Mellen Jam” festival is an annual event held over Memorial Day weekend on Gilgen Road, just north of Mellen.

The private property is located next to a large area of densely forested and extremely rugged terrain.

Police searched the area with several deputies and a K-9 unit, but nothing was found.

Anyone with information on Jody’s whereabouts are asked to contact the Ashland County Sheriff’s Office immediately at 715-682-7023.
