I think it was LE who told the family they could not search properties. LE was not willing to help a lot. The properties around where he went missing were hundreds of acres owned by a few people. It probably took a concerned person from Ladessa's group personally asking the owners if they could search.

A lot is explained in the Crime Con video/podcast. It’s worth a listen I think!

Just listened to the podcast Apparently he was found just short of a mile from his truck.

And yes! Jason Watts wrote the landowner a letter. The landowner lived in another part of the state and did not know anyone was missing. That is how he was able to search. I feel LE (the Sheriff) dropped the ball not letting family search or at least calling some land owners to see if they can search. The owner was perfectly fine helping.
Thanks @MadMcGoo !

Thank you! Yes, it was helpful. I cannot believe that there still hasn't been confirmation yet.

I do wish that Dylan Round's family would listen to this interview and maybe talk to the family. It may help them in their quest and with their anger towards LE.

Isn't that what search warrants are for? Even if the land owner says no, LE can get a warrant and search anyway if there's reason to think a deceased person might be there right?

What would be LEs motivation for not doing this?

The landowners were not asked. LE made up their mind early on that BL had staged his disappearance to get away from an arrest warrant. Small town, egotistical sheriff, etc. It was not the fault of the family or landowners. It was LE saying "you cannot search-landowners will not allow it." When the family was trying to search, LE was driving by to make sure they did not cross over into privately owned land. There were a couple of land searches done by LE, but he was not discovered.

Happy 36th Birthday Brandon, whether it's a heavenly one or one somewhere on this earth.

The family noted on the Find Brandon Lawson page last night that law enforcement said it could take up to a year for the DNA to come back. Praying for answers soon for them.
