(Aurora, Ind.) – A missing Rising Sun man may now be the focus of a criminal investigation.

Craig Whitham, 42, was reported missing by his family Wednesday after he had gone missing Monday, February 22. Relatives said Whitham disappeared without his phone and wallet. He remains missing as of Friday, according to posts made to a Facebook page called “Prayers for Craig Whitham. Help us bring him home“.

Whitham has been an EMT with Aurora Emergency Rescue for about 20 years.

On Wednesday, the Dearborn-Ohio County Prosecutor’s Office subpoenaed Whitham’s bank records from PNC Bank, according to public filings. An affidavit seeking the subpoena says that police are involved in the investigation of theft of funds from the Aurora Emergency Rescue, Inc. The subpoena asks that bank statements and summaries ranging from January 1, 2015 through February 22, 2016 be turned over to Aurora Police Department detectives.

No charges have been filed and Whitham has not been named as a suspect.

Rising Sun Police are leading the missing person investigation. Lt. Brian Browning said Thursday that foul play is not suspected in Whitham’s disappearance.

Whitham may be driving a silver 2014 Dodge Journey with Indiana plate HW6348.

Anybody with information on Whitham’s whereabouts is asked to call the Rising Sun Police Department at (812) 438-3737.
