BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - The search for a North Dakota doctor last seen in southwestern Montana has moved from Gallatin County to Madison County after officials received a tip that Patrick J. Fitzpatrick might be in the Harrison area.

Fitzpatrick, of Bismarck, North Dakota, was last seen in Bozeman on July 3. His vehicle was discovered abandoned south of Willow Creek the next day. Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Commander Lt. Jason Jarrett said searchers are confident Fitzpatrick is not in the Willow Creek area.

Fitzpatrick, who is 74, is described as 6 feet tall and about 250 pound with gray eyes and white hair. He wears glasses.

Crews searched Wednesday near Harrison and around Willow Creek Reservoir to the east.

Anyone with information on Fitzpatrick’s whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff’s department in Gallatin or Madison county.
