It was over a year ago that friends and family last saw Michael T. Kroell, also known as ‘Cedar’. Kroell was last seen on January 12, 2012. According to official reports, Kroell was last known to be on Mossy Oak Lane in Heber Springs and was wearing bib overalls, a plaid navy blue shirt, and a white cowboy hat.
