-UPDATED- Information related to the recovery of Branden Santo's body

According to open source information, Brendan Santo was last seen leaving Yakeley Hall just before midnight of 10/29/2021, on the campus of Michigan State University (MSU).  Santo, described as a student of Grand Valley State and from Rochester Hills, was reportedly visiting with friends on the MSU campus.  (Some open source information indicates Santos may have been walking around Michigan Street and Beal Street toward the Brody neighborhood). 

Furthermore, media reports indicate the security cameras most likely to view Santo's last known location and/or provide lead information concerning his disappearance were inoperable at the time.  Reporting has indicated Santos vehicle was found in the area, but he remains missing.

Media reporting also identified the MSU police as having searched by foot, drone, helicopter, boat and with the help of canines. The search has included officers from local, state and federal agencies as well as hundreds of volunteers.

The family of Santos is now offering a $11,000 reward through Crime Stoppers of Mid-Michigan for information leading to Brendan's return home.
