Identifying Characteristics:

Brandon was last seen wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt under a blue striped Polo sweatshirt, a black hooded zip-up jacket with an emblem on the back, a white flat-billed Minnesota Twins baseball cap, white sneakers, a heavy sterling silver necklace and one stud earring in each ear.
Circumstances of Disappearance:
Unknown. His photo is shown age-progressed to 24 years. Brandon was last seen in Canby, Minnesota on May 14, 2008, visiting friends. On his way home to Marshall his car became stuck in a ditch. Brandon called his parents requesting their assistance to pull his car out of the ditch. Brandon reported that he was between Marshall and Lynd. His parents left home to provide assistance and kept in phone contact with Brandon. His parents were unable to locate him but remained in contact while he attempted to describe his location - continuing to believe he was between Marshall and Lynd. Becoming frustrated, Brandon stated he would walk to Lynd and remained on the phone with his Dad while he walked. The 47-minute phone conversation ended abruptly with Brandon stating, "Another damn fence" and then shortly thereafter "Oh, s--t!" Contact with Brandon could not be reestablished and he has not been seen or heard from since. On the afternoon of May 14, 2008 Brandon's car was located in the ditch on the Lincoln Lyon Road near Taunton, Minnesota. There was no trace of Swanson and he has never been heard from again. His case remains unsolved. In 2008, Brandon's Law, named for Swanson, was passed and required Minnesota police to being an immediate search for missing adults under 21, as well as older adults who are missing under suspicious circumstances.
