Details of Disappearance

Brody was last seen on a trail in the woods south of his residence, which was near State Highway 73 and south Young Street in Saratoga, Wisconsin, on April 13, 2017. He has never been heard from again and an extensive search of the area turned up no indication of his whereabouts.

He has been known to drop out of sight from time to time, but never for this long. He apparently returned home at some point after he was reported missing and left a note, then left again. Authorities haven't stated what the note said.

Brody didn't have a cellular phone at the time of his disappearance, and he had never learned to drive. He used a bicycle for transportation his whole life, but the bike he usually rode was left behind at his residence. His residence was full of clutter, and he had no running water; he would bathe in a creek behind his house. Several guns were found in his residence; it's unclear whether any were missing.

The circumstances of Brody's case are unclear. His case remains unsolved.
