(AP) - Law enforcement officers are searching for a 19-year-old Marshall man whose car was found abandoned in a ditch northwest of Taunton. The Lyon County Sheriff's Office says Brandon Swanson's Chevrolet Lumina was found shortly after noon Wednesday at the Lyon-Lincoln county line in southwestern Minnesota. Swanson's parents called the sheriff about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday to say they had gotten a cell phone call from their son, who said he had gone into a ditch. http://www.ksfy.com/news/local/18996659.html Cell Phone Used To Locate Teen's Car A tri-county search is underway for a teen near the town of Taunton, Minnesota. Brandon Swanson, 19, was reported missing early Wednesday morning, and on Thursday crews narrowed their search thanks to a cell phone call. Search teams found Brandon Swanson's car a half mile north of Minnesota Highway 68 on the border between Lincoln county and Lyon county. If Swanson had made a 911 call from the location it would have taken almost no time to find him because dispatchers and law enforcement officers would have been able to trace his location to within at least 300 feet. http://marshallindependent.com/page/content.detail/id/501764.html Search for teen continues LYON COUNTY The search for Brandon Swanson, 19, of Marshall continued into its second day in Lyon County on Thursday. Swanson was reported missing Wednesday morning by his parents when they couldnt find or reach him. They contacted authorities after a cellular telephone call earlier that morning when Swanson told his parents his car went into a ditch, the Lyon County Sheriffs Department said. It was believed he was going to Marshall from Canby, where he attends Minnesota West college, Lyon County Sheriff Joel Dahl said. The search on Thursday focused on an area near Taunton and the Lincoln-Lyon County Line road, less than a half-mile north of the intersection with Minnesota Highway 68. The search area included land along the Yellow Medicine River. At this point were not calling it a recovery effort, Dahl said at about 4 p.m. Thursday. The search would continue Thursday evening, he said. Dahl did say that with friends and family looking for him, it seems unlikely Swanson could be with a friend or be unaware of the search for him. We just have not found him, Dahl said.
