Foundation to help in Swanson search

The search continues for missing Brandon Swanson with no results. However, the family of Brandon Swanson could not be more thankful for all of the help that they have received from volunteers.

On Saturday, volunteer crews will continue to look for the missing teen. They plan to expand their search and concentrate on the Yellow Medicine River. Brandon’s dad Brian says that every weekend dozens of people volunteered their time and he couldn’t be more thankful.

“In our society, you know, just sometimes it seems everybody is out for number one, but this has proven to me that people care about others and they’ll do anything for you,” said Brian. The Swansons welcome volunteers to join their search this weekend.
