Missing Brainerd Man's Truck found near Isabella

Recommended Posts

Friday a.m., Brainerd

Thanks to the efforts of the entire staff here in Brainerd, the story became a statewide story on Wed. evening on all major media. Apparently, that result must have lit the flame under the MN Bureau of Criminal Apprehension in St. Paul, as well as local authorities, because beginning Thursday morning this area was buzzing with state and local law enforcement action including in-depth interviews with people like Ryan’s parents, and me.

Ryan made a credit card purchase at about 2 a.m. Saturday morning in Winona, MN, 250 miles south of here and his image is on a security camera at that location. That was new information yesterday. Since he was also seen on the security camera in Rice, MN, 50 miles south of here at 6 am that morning, it is apparent he was headed north at a brisk rate.

Likely as a result of this sudden interest by the authorities yesterday, their in-depth look and the help of media, and our efforts, Ryan’s vehicle was reported Thursday afternoon by a cabin owner in northern Minnesota who reported the truck parked at a neighboring cabin 20 miles from the town of Ely, Minnesota, one of the last stops on the way into the Boundary Waters Canoe area in far Northeastern Minnesota. A man fitting Ryan’s description had been seen on at least one of the days previous, but had not been seen yesterday.

Ryan’s parents and authorities arrived on the scene late last night but Ryan was not found at the cabin, though his keys were in the parked truck. There were signs that he had slept in the cabin, and a bow was found there also. The cabin turns out to be that of a friend of Ryan’s from Brainerd, a hunting buddy, who had no knowledge that Ryan was there.

According to my contact at the BCA, this morning, state and local authorities are searching via helicopter and ground searches in local towns and hamlets near the cabin to try and locate Ryan. They remain concerned about his welfare and are trying to determine if he is in harm’s way. They are hoping for a happy ending.

They did say that they had information they could not release, so have no idea what that might be.

That’s all we know at this time. There are plenty of rumors flying around, but none are confirmed and the information we have given you includes all the facts released to this point.

We have distributed a new poster to sources in northern Minnesota in the last hour. We have removed his truck from the former poster and provided the new information about his last confirmed location

Thanks for your concern.

They just said on the news that they found him up near Isabella in an Ice House sleeping/fishing.

Yes Ryan has been found and reunited with his parents, though details are sketchy right now. He suffered minor frostbite but otherwise seems okay.

Good to see Ryan was found. Hope he recovers from what ever the reason was for taking off like that.

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!
