    I haven't found any updated articles either. I did find this and some other bits but can't be shared on the site. It is heartbreaking. Father's Day is tomorrow :(

    I hear you. The longer he's missing, the more likely he's not alive.

    Garen has been found deceased. There is no MSM article posted yet and no further details at this time.

    :(

    Authorities: Dead body appears to be missing man

    Authorities were searching for him Saturday when they came across the body of a dead man in thick woods. The body was about 100 yards away from the Dowagiac River.

    Investigators say the body appears to be Collins. There were no apparent signs of foul play, authorities say.

    Authorities say an autopsy is scheduled for Sunday to confirm the identification of the body and determine a cause of death.

    Condolences to the friends and family.

    That's so sad, may Garen rest in peace. I wonder if he just wasn't feeling well and wandered off. Although, the thick woods part is a bit puzzling to me.

    How sad for Garen, and for those that loved him. I was so hoping that he would be found alive. RIP Garen.
