Nationwide Silver Alert for Missing Kansas Man
JEFFERSON COUNTY – The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office requested that the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) issue a statewide silver alert for a missing Ozawkie man.
The whereabouts of 59-year-old Kenneth Klenklen are unknown and the public is asked to find him. The sheriff’s office first issued the silver alert to local media on Friday, but Klenklen was not located, so the silver alert was expanded to a nationwide alert, according to a KBI media release.

Klenklen was last known on Wednesday, September 15 at around 2:00 p.m. at the Jefferson West Junction Convenience Store in Meriden. Klenklen was last seen in black shoes, black pants, a black t-shirt, and a blue short-sleeved unbuttoned shirt.
Klenklen drove his black Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition 2007 with a light brown trim and the license plate 246 MUZ of Kansas.
Klenklen is known for visiting the Ozawkie American Legion and the bars in Oskaloosa. Klenklen was also known in the past for visiting the Prairie Band and the Sac and Fox Casino.
