(1:05 PM) Search Continues For Missing Warren County Man

Sven Blumquist

Local police agencies are continuing their search for a missing Warren County man last seen at the Blue Heron Music Festival in Sherman.

Conewango Township Police in Pennsylvania said Sven Blumquist was last seen about 1 a.m. Saturday at the festival wearing a red zip-up hoodie, blue jeans and a bandana. According to Jason Peters, Conewango Township Police chief, Blumquist was supposed to return home Sunday but has not been seen or heard from.

Capt. Eric Balon of the New York State Police said troopers are currently assisting in search efforts in Sherman and the “surrounding area.” Also helping are members from the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office and New York forest rangers.

“Family and friends are actively searching as well,” Peters told the Times Observer newspaper in Warren.

Peters said Blumquist was listed as a missing person by his department and entered into the FBI’s National Crime Information Center because he is a township resident.

Organizers for the music festival could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the New York State Police at 665-3114 or Conewango police at 814-726-0725.
