MARSHALL, Minn. (AP) — The family of a missing Marshall man is organizing another group of volunteers to continue the search for him.
Nineteen-year-old Brandon Swanson has been missing since the morning of May 14 after his car went into the ditch along the Lincoln and Lyon County line near Taunton.
The search has focused on areas near the Yellow Medicine River in parts of Lyon and Lincoln counties.
Family member Wanda Scharfe says volunteers should meet at 9 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot of the West End Bar in Taunton.
She says volunteers should wear long pants and long sleeves and bring bug spray and sunscreen. They should be ready to work in different terrains.
Lincoln County Sheriff Jack Vizecky suspects a tragic accident happened. He says if Swanson went into the river, it could take weeks for the body to emerge from the cold water.
