Greater Sudbury Police Search and Rescue Team, the Tactical Unit and members of the North Shore Search and Rescue are conducting a ground search for missing Branden Bodson-Gratton.

The search is being done West of Frood Road along Elm Street and Pine Street.

Officers may be checking residential and business properties and they are asking residents to avoid the area if possible.


Greater Sudbury Police are requesting the public check their property to look for the 25-year old man who may have taken shelter in a garage or shed.

He has not been seen or heard from since December 3rd and the family of Branden has concern for his well-being because of his medical condition.

His mother Dianne Gratton says it’s out of character for him to not keep in touch and he sometimes does hallucinogenic drugs, which exacerbates his schizophrenia.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or crime stoppers.
