Brandon Swanson search:

Authorities started searching for Brandon immediately after he was reported missing to the Lynd police by his parents who became worried at his disappearance. Areas, where he was seen last, were thoroughly checked. They asked the help of the Lyon County sheriff Joel Dahl in assisting them. To better focus the search, the sheriff’s office obtained Brandon’s cell phone records, which revealed that Brandon had been calling from the vicinity of Taunton, along State Highway 68, the main route to Canby, northwest of Marshall—25 miles.

During the search, Brandon’s car was found abandoned in a ditch off a gravel road along the Lincoln County line a mile north of Highway 68. His phone was later tracked by authorities which led them to his last known whereabouts but that didn’t bring them to find him.

The case was later handed to The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension who took over leading the case. A tip line was registered which brought in 90 leads by 2015 that had been reported that way. This made authorities begin the search again. When official searches resumed, the area of interest had moved towards Mud Creek, a tributary of the Yellow Medicine north and northwest of Porter.
