CARROLL, Iowa (AP) – Authorities say they’ve found a 54-year-old man they wanted to question about the disappearance of a Carroll woman whose car was abandoned in a nightclub’s parking lot. Law enforcement officials said Monday that they consider James Snovelle, of Rolfe, a witness in the disappearance of 50-year-old Dawn Allen.

According to The Des Moines Register, Carroll police did not say later Monday what, if anything, investigators have learned from Snovelle.

Allen was last seen at her home on Wednesday. She did not show up for work the next day, when her vehicle was found in the Piranha Club’s parking lot, on the east side of Carroll.
