Janesville man goes missing



Just days after finding the body of 75-year-old Mary Coulthard in the Rock River, Janesville police say they are looking for another missing person.

59-year-old Gerald Hockensmith was last seen at his apartment on the 100 block of North River Street on Thursday, May first - just a day before the last time Coulthard was seen.

Police say Hockensmith primarily travels on foot, and likes to frequent convenience and liquor stores.

He's described as six feet tall, and 250 pounds, and was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and white tennis shoes.

Hockensmith's disappearance comes at a time when 28-year-old Clayton Courtney of Janesville made claims that he had killed three people.

Courtney is currently in police custody for attempted homicide and is the primary suspect in the death of an Edgerton woman.
