Meteorologists, or weather forecasters, don't you feel guilty taking a paycheck when you're so far off track on most of your weather predictions? I'm just an average citizen who has had no formal weather-related training, and I can just look out of my window and predict more accurately what tomorrow's weather will bring than you seem to be able to do, especially wind directions and speed. You say winds are five to 10, but I'm getting ready to go fishing and see whitecaps rolling in and the tree tops almost touching the ground. What's with that?
It seems to me that there was a young man missing from Brainerd area within about the last two years. It seems like there were clothes found somewhere along the tracks east of town. With finding these other missing people, it came to my mind and I'm wondering if there are plans to search for this person also?
What about the others?
Congratulations to volunteers and law officers who did a super task of finding both Dru and Erika. Could this happen in Cass County where Charlotte Lysdale has been missing almost 20 years and Rachel Anthony who's body was found out by Breezy Point? But no one has ever been charged. Could DNA help in this further investigation? Someone out there knows what happened. It's time these murders were solved and people brought to justice.
