Brendan Santo’s family is organizing a search for volunteers from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, November 6 at Michigan State University Union and until dusk.
According to the Bring Brendan Santo Home Facebook group, maps will be provided to all volunteers. The research will consist of small groups concentrated on campus, trails and other wooded areas.
Additionally, the Michigan State University Police Department, or MSUPD, has asked volunteers to stay away from the Red Cedar River and the riverside.
Santo was last seen on October 29, leaving Yakeley Hall shortly before midnight. It is possible that Santo planned to walk about half a mile to the Brody neighborhood.
Yakeley Hall is located at the north end of the MSU campus, near Michigan Avenue and Grand River Avenue.
Santo is not a student at MSU and was visiting friends. However, there is no indication that he left the East Lansing area. Santo’s vehicle was left at the last place it was parked.
He was last seen wearing gray sweatpants, a black t-shirt, a black baseball cap and Converse shoes. Santo is five feet, 10 inches, and 160 pounds.
The Santo family encouraged community members to continue to keep their eyes open and provide advice or information to investigators.
