The Search for Brandon Swanson Continues!

The search for 19 year old Brandon Swanson, missing from Marshall, Minnesota continues. Brandon has been missing since May 14, 2008.

This past weekend searches were done on a couple of river and stream sections hoping to find some evidence of Brandon's direction of travel from his car. It's with heavy heart that I tell you that we found nothing that tells us anything for sure. We do not plan a search for this coming weekend.(August 9-10)

However we will be conducting a group search on the weekend of August 16th & 17th.
Search Director Gary Peterson and Sheriff Jack Vizecky will be coordinating and have asked that searchers meet at the Taunton Fire Hall at 8:30 a.m. We will be searching the ditches, rivers and stream areas that are of high interest.
The more volunteers the better. Please come prepared to walk through tall grass & marsh areas as well as river/stream sections.

There will also be a Search and Recovery K-9 Unit out of Anoka County. Their search will begin on Friday the 15th through Sunday. They will be searching areas of interest as well as sending a cadaver dog in a boat to expand the river search father east on the Yellow Medicine River.
