Biography

  • Birth: Kyle A Blohm was born on March 11, 1992.
  • Death: He died in August 2015, at age 23.
  • Note: Blohm, Kyle A.

    On March 11, 1992, Kyle Adam Blohm was born in Neenah to Michael J. Bogan and Ann M. Kuchenbecker and on Friday, August 14, 2015, we will say our final goodbyes. Kyle had attended schools in Neenah and was a 2010 graduate. After high school, he was enrolled at UW-Milwaukee. Kyle enjoyed being outdoors, whether it was hunting and fishing or playing soccer. Most of all he loved when winter came around so he could snowboard.

    Kyle will be missed by his loving parents: Michael Bogan and Ann Kuehni; his daughter, Grace and her mother, Morgan Ridley and the rest of her family; his brothers: James and Andrew Kuehni and Thomas Blohm; his paternal grandparents: Mike and Carol Bogan; his maternal grandparents: Al and Ruth Kuchenbecker; as well as all of the Bogan, Kuchenbecker, Blohm, Kuehni, Dachelet, Gerald, and Cowling families.

    A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 am on Friday, August 14, 2015 at Wichmann Funeral Home-Laemmrich Chapel, 312 Milwaukee Street in Menasha. The Memorial Gathering will be held from 9:00 am until the hour of the service at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, a memorial will be set up for Kyle's daughter, Grace. Online condolences may be given at www.wichmannfargo.com

    The family would like to extend a heartfelt Thank You to all of the family and friends that prayed and supported them through this past year as well as the staff of the Neenah Police Department, along with Special Agent Jeff Dowdy. Also a special Thank You to the SCA Corp. family for the flexibility given to Mike, allowing him to take the time he needed during this tragic time.
  • Note: NEENAH – For the past 11 months, Kyle Blohm's family and friends have pleaded with him to come home.

    But those desperate efforts on social media and via news outlets have yet to pay off. Blohm's loved ones — along with Neenah police — are at a loss to explain to why the 23-year-old man left the Neenah-Menasha area in his pickup truck on Aug. 8, 2014, and never returned.

    "It's frustrating," said Mike Bogan of Neenah, Blohm's father. "I've just got to keep the faith and believe that he's still out there."

    he prevailing theory by law enforcement is that Blohm left the area for personal reasons. There has been a number of sightings of Blohm in Wisconsin and outside the state since he went missing. But none of the reports has been confirmed, and his whereabouts remain a mystery.

    "It's still very much on our dashboard as we try to figure out what we can do," said Neenah Police Chief Kevin Wilkinson, who is hopeful that answers to Blohm's disappearance will eventually surface. "You can't help but think of his family (and what it has endured)."

    There's been no activity on Blohm's bank accounts, no social media messages or posts and no cellphone calls. And Blohm hasn't reached out to Bogan or to Ann Kuehni, Blohm's mother.

    Sightings still coming in

    Blohm, a 2010 graduate of Neenah High School, was last seen on Aug. 8. His girlfriend reported him missing Aug. 9. He apparently took a computer and a bicycle when he left, police said.

    Bogan said he "has no idea" why his son left the Fox Cities. He has speculated that Blohm needed time to sort things out or was feeling overwhelmed. He thinks Blohm is "living off the grid" outside of the Fox Valley and is concealing his identity.

    Bogan also believes that his son is getting some assistance in staying under the radar.

    "I think more and more that someone is helping him," Bogan said. "With today's media, it's hard to be off the grid, and to do it this long is extremely difficult."

    Neenah police officer Edgar Gonzalez said sightings of Blohm are still being reported.

    "The tips keep coming in — slowly, but surely," Gonzalez said. "So far, they have all come back negative. We haven't been able to confirm (any of the reports)."

    Gonzalez said some people have reported seeing a vehicle that matches the description of Blohm's 1999 red Ford Ranger, while others say they have seen Blohm at restaurants or other public places.

    "The case is still open, and detectives are working on it," Gonzalez said.

    Wilkinson said the absence of any concrete evidence has made it difficult to draw any conclusions about Blohm's whereabouts.

    "There is simply no confirmed sightings," he said. "And there is nothing in particular that points to foul play."

    Wilkinson said as time passes, there is a stronger likelihood that Blohm is no longer alive. But he is committed to following leads until the disappearance is solved.

    "It's frustrating," Wilkinson said. "You're trying to find closure, and you can't. Early on, (detectives) had all kinds of things to check. Then after awhile, just try to find out what else (they) can do."

    Hoping for the best

    Bogan has checked out a number of tips on his own since his son disappeared, including sightings in small and large Wisconsin communities.

    "There's been a lot of tips recently; unfortunately nothing has turned out," he said. "(But) it's good that people are still keeping their eyes open. (Kyle) hasn't been forgotten."

    Bogan, who praised Neenah police for their handling of his son's disappearance, said he believes his son is alive, but is prepared for the worst.

    "If it's bad news, I would like to know that," he said.

    Meanwhile, Bogan is grateful to the community for its support to Blohm's family members during the ordeal.

    "So many people are helping from the outside," he said. "They have been very consoling."

    Have you seen Kyle Blohm?

    Kyle Blohm, 23, is 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighs 170 pounds, and has green eyes and brown hair. At the time of his disappearance, he was driving a 1999 red Ford Ranger with a Wisconsin license plate number JA4344. He was last seen Aug. 8, 2014 in Menasha. Authorities said he took some personal belongings, including a computer and a bicycle. Anyone with information about Blohm's whereabouts should call the Neenah Police Department at 920-886-6000.
  • Note: A truck belonging to a missing Neenah man was found by hunters Sunday in Oconto County, and skeletal remains were discovered nearby.

    The Oconto County Sheriff’s Department verified the red Ford Ranger pickup belonged to Kyle Blohm, 22, who went missing Aug. 8, 2014. The skeletal remains have yet to be identified.

    The hunters came upon the truck in a wooded pine plantation at a county park in the Town of Bagley, about three miles north of Suring, according to a statement released today by the Neenah Police Department.

    While the remains found near his truck have yet to be identified, Blohm’s family “understand(s) the implications of the discovery,” the police department said.

    Blohm’s father, Mike Bogan, issued the following statement through the Neenah Police Department: “It is with heavy hearts that we must bring you the sad news that Kyle Blohm was found on Sunday, Aug. 9. Kyle was an outstanding son, father, brother, nephew, cousin and friend. He will be greatly missed by all who loved him.

    “We ask that you please give the family some privacy to grieve at this time. Thank you to all that have supported us throughout this difficult time. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.”

    Neenah police are working with the Oconto County Sheriff’s Department and will release more information when it becomes available.
  • Note: The remains of Kyle Blohm, who went missing in 2014, were found Sunday in Oconto County.

    uthorities say skeletal remains found Sunday in Oconto County are that of Kyle Blohm, the 22-year-old Neenah man who went missing more than a year ago.

    A group of bear hunters came upon Blohm’s Ford Ranger pickup truck Sunday in a wooded pine plantation at a county park in the Town of Bagley, about three miles north of Suring.

    The Brown County Medical Examiner’s office identified the remains through dental records, the Neenah Police Department said in a statement late Tuesday afternoon.

    Blohm, who was last seen on Aug. 8, 2014, had family with property in that area, said Neenah Police Chief Kevin Wilkinson. Despite those connections, Blohm did not reach out to family or friends during the year he was missing.

    People across the state reported numerous sightings of Blohm, many of which trended northward, Wilkinson said.

    “We had the Antigo area. It seemed like more of them tended to be in northern Wisconsin,” Wilkinson said.

    Whether Blohm visited any of those places is one of many questions authorities will never be able to answer.

    “The employees of the Neenah Police Department express their sincere condolences to all the family members and friends of Kyle,” the statement said. “We also extend our gratitude to all those people who worked to help find Kyle during the past year.”

    Blohm left Neenah with his pickup truck and personal belongings, including a laptop and a bicycle. Police believe Blohm left the area for personal reasons.

    Blohm’s father, Mike Bogan, told Post-Crescent Media in July that he did not know why his son left, but suspected he was “living off the grid” and concealing his identity.

    A 2010 Neenah High School graduate, Blohm leaves behind family and friends, including a girlfriend and a young daughter.

    Bogan released a statement Monday through the Neenah Police Department: “It is with heavy hearts that we must bring you the sad news that Kyle Blohm was found Sunday, Aug. 9. Kyle was an outstanding son, father, brother, nephew, cousin and friend. He will be greatly missed by all who loved him.

    “We ask that you please give the family some privacy to grieve at this time. Thank you to all who have supported us throughout this difficult time. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.”.
