Hat Found in River of Missing St. Cloud State Student Scot Radel

The North Carolina Tar Heels cap of Scot Radel was found in the Mississippi River. Upon the discovery of the cap, the parents of Scot Radel called off the search for the missing 21-year-old from Owatonna, MN.

The student’s father, Allan Radel, confirmed that the baseball hat found in the river matched the North Carolina Tar Heels cap worn by his son when he disappeared nearly two weeks ago.

The father says now the scope of their search will change from finding the man to looking for a body.

But Allan Radel says investigations into how his son fell into the river will continue. Radel says he believes Scot was the victim of foul play.
