Family Holds Out Hope For Man Missing Since ’01

SKIDMORE, Mo. (AP) –  Family and friends of a northwest Missouri man who disappeared 10 years ago say they won’t stop looking for him.

On April 11, 2001, 20-year-old Branson Perry left his parents’ home in Skidmore and hasn’t been seen since.

Officials have turned up little evidence in the decade-long search for Perry.

Nodaway County Sheriff Darren White says the last tip in the case came in last year.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports that most people connected with the case believe that Perry has died.

When his mother died in February, her obituary said she was preceded in death by her son.

But friends of his family vow to keep the case alive, and continue to work to find out what happened to Perry.
