    Authorities Seeking Public's Help in Search for Missing Pine River Man


    Updated at: 06/04/2010 11:59 AM | KSAX.com

    PINE RIVER, Minn. - Local authorities are asking for the public's help in the search for a missing Pine River man, last seen a week ago.

    There's still no word, and family and friends have been searching, but their search started days after Prokott disappeared. That's because they didn't find out he was missing until a week after the fact.

    Rest in Peace Duane.

    RIP Duane.

    special needs cases are always a little sadder.

    What I'm confused by here is the fact that it took a WEEK for them to notify the family he was missing.

    I've got family with special needs, one in a group home, and I've WORKED in a group home setting. When someone goes missing, or is suspected as being missing, the protocol is to contact them within 24 hours MAX.

    Someone really dropped the ball here.

    RIP Duane
