MARSHALL, Minn. (AP) — Law enforcement officers are searching for a 19-year-old Marshall man whose car was found abandoned in a ditch northwest of Taunton.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office says Brandon Swanson’s Chevrolet Lumina was found shortly after noon Wednesday at the Lyon-Lincoln county line in southwestern Minnesota.

Swanson’s parents called the sheriff about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday to say they had gotten a cell phone call from their son, who said he had gone into a ditch.


He told them he went off the road between Marshall and Lynd, but his car wasn’t there. The cell call was traced to a tower near Minneota, and the car was found soon after.

A search of the area Wednesday by officers, a police dog and a State Patrol airplane turned up nothing. Taunton is about 15 miles northwest of Marshall.
