Reward increased 2 months after Brendan Santo disappeared in Michigan State
EAST LANSING, Michigan. – It has been two months since Brendan Santo is missing on the Michigan State University campus, and the information reward that leads to its discovery grows.
The 18 year old Grand Valley State University A student was visiting friends in Michigan State just before Halloween when he went missing, authorities said.
Investigators do not believe that a criminal act was involved in Santo’s disappearance. They said their work has been reviewed by local, state and federal partners.
The search for Santo has been relentless, officials said. State soldiers said it weighed heavily on their hearts as they continued to search for the teenager.
The payoff in the case continues to grow and now exceeds $ 20,000.
Police have previously searched the Red Cedar River in East Lansing, but it has been difficult due to the depth and current of the river, as well as the lack of visibility, authorities said.
“We used sonar, dogs and other underwater technology,” officials said. “We also received hundreds of tips. To date, our investigative and research efforts have not located any objects of interest or any of Brendan’s personal property.
Police said they are looking at each individual tip and assessing what follow-up investigation can be done. Anyone with information is asked to call 844-99-MSUPD (67873) or email [email protected]
