FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Mystery surrounds a Democratic candidate for Fort Wayne City Council.

Tommy Schrader won one of the party's three at-large nominations in Tuesday’s primary, but Democratic leaders are really unsure who he is.

They say his phone number is disconnected and he never attended any pre-election events.

There are also questions about whether Schrader still lives at his listed address.

Schrader contacted us last night and said he's currently vacationing in Wisconsin, then said he plans to move.

Reports say Democratic leaders could challenge his residency in court and have him removed from the November ballot.
