    (...) search and rescue dogs worked Thursday afternoon and into the nighttime hours looking for the Brainerd man. One of the dogs did alert in a southerly direction from the residence but did not lead police to anything.

    (...) "We know he was on Facebook so we are looking for anyone who may have communicated with him on Facebook or particularly anyone who may have had contact with him shortly before his father last saw him at their home."

    Anyone with information is asked to call Brainerd police at 218-829-2805.

    (...)

    The Minnesota State Patrol was also assisting with the search from the air with a helicopter flying above the river area

    The Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office Boat and Water Division had a boat out Friday on the Mississippi River near Kiwanis Park in Brainerd looking for Rich, as a precaution.

    Initial indications are that it is the 23-year-old missing Brainerd man Brandon Rich who authorities had been searching for since he was reporting missing on May 5.

    Does anyone feel that the circumstances between his disappearance and Marc Welzants are too similar to be coincidental?
    Lived on same street, both vulnerable adults, Brandon was found in the same park Marc was last seen. I pray there isn't a predator that targeted both of them.

    Police believe the body recovered from a Brainerd lake Saturday morning is that of a missing vulnerable adult.

    Brandon Rich, 23, was last seen Wednesday night.

    You know that thought crossed my mind. I do feel it was coincidental in the end. I'm unsure of either his or Marc's diagnoses but there may be a chance IMO they could have been easily confused? Turned around? IYKWIM I just hate the thought that either fell victim to a predator.
