St. Louis County Sheriff's Office News Release

Incident Date: 5-5-19

Incident Time: 4:15PM 

Incident location: 5700 Block Lavaque Rd in Canosia Township

Name:  Julian Daniel Decoux






Address: Duluth, MN



Incident Summary:

On Sunday 5/5/2019, an adult foster care home in Canosia Township reported a resident was missing.  Julian Daniel Decoux was last seen outside the home earlier in the afternoon.  Staff members had searched for Decoux, but could not find him. Decoux has been a resident at the home for several years.  Deputies and volunteers from the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office responded.  A search of the area around the foster home was conducted, however, Decoux was not located.  The search was aided by both canines and aerial drone technology.

Decoux has eloped from the house before, however, due to his current functioning level he would likely generate some type of public attention or 911 call.  He has never been gone for this amount of time.  Decoux is still missing and the Sheriff's Office is asking for help from anyone who may have seen Decoux or know where he is. 

He was last seen wearing a bright green winter hat, an orange hooded sweatshirt, a black vest, black pants and new grey tennis shoes. 

An additional search of the area around Decoux's home is also planned.   

If you have any information, please contact 911 or the Sheriff's Office Investigative Division in Duluth  218-336-4350
