  1. There are way too many “disappearance’s” of that age group in the Columbus area. Somehow, I tend to have some skepticism when people report sightings. It is way to easy to mistake some stranger for a person you only saw in a picture on the TV or newspapers.

  5. Brian has not been found. It has been over 4 months and not a word. His dad has cleaned out his apartment not too long ago. Brian has touched alot of us that knew him in many different ways. He is missed so much right now.
