No New Clues After Day Of Searching For Missing Sartell Native Tom Bearson
FARGO - Fargo police, several police dogs, and firefighters spent all day yesterday (Monday) searching areas in-and-around the NDSU campus, as well as the Red River for a missing Sartell native.
Eighteen-year-old Tommy Bearson was last seen leaving a party near campus early Saturday.
Friends like Mitchell Clemens are worried, "I'm just concerned that he's lost somewhere, and know one knows if we're going to find him."
A code red was sent to people living in the area to check their property for any signs of Bearson.
He was last seen wearing a baseball hat, a blue Sartell high school track and field shirt and Khaki pants.
Foul play is not suspected in his disappearance.
Fargo Police Lieutenant Joel Vettel says law enforcement across the region, all the way to the St. Cloud-Sartell area have been notified of the disappearance.
Electronic billboards with Bearson's photo and tip numbers for police are also up in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
Bearson was supposed to have went home to Sartell with friends Saturday but never made the trip. Unable to contact their son, his parents notified campus police Saturday afternoon and an initial search was launched.
A community prayer service is planned for 7:00 p.m. tonight (Tuesday) at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Sartell.
