I've done a lot of sleuthing myself on this one, I even contacted Brendan's family regarding Facebook activity on a post of his on June 22, 2013.
Perhaps not go too much into discussion regarding the Facebook posts though, his family didn't want some kind of media circus surrounding it.

I have looked into Brendan a lot, too. His last facebook posts were very troubling, however some of his posts in the past were just as troubling. Brendan had a lot of people offering help, even offering him a place to stay- it sounds like he had a lot of people who cared for him. While I have a bad feeling about this young man, I hope he is out there, getting some help, and will be contacting his family soon.

Wow, it's really, really sad to read Brendan's FB page.......he is a deeply distressed man who is evidently in a lot of emotional turmoil.
I too hope he is somewhere, alive.
I feel that it was less dangerous when he was actually posting that he was going to kill himself, rather than when all is quiet like this.
In my professional experience, people that are determined to follow through on their suicide plan keep it very quiet and just go and do it. MOO though.
I hope in this case, he's just taking some time out somewhere.
Thanks for posting this thread, Taco I really feel for Brendan. And his lovely friends - what beautiful support they've offered.
