According to the Stillwater County Sheriff Office/Coroner's Office, has stated to the media that on Thursday, June 21, 2018, The Stillwater County Sheriff’s Office, Stillwater County Search and Rescue, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, and K-9 teams from Western Montana Search Dogs, and Absaroka Search Dogs resumed the search on the Yellowstone River for Brandon Fitch who went missing in the early morning hours of Saturday June 16, 2018.
Searchers and K-9 teams worked from the shore and from boats in the water and believe they have narrowed down an area where Fitch may be located. Authorities are exploring options with certified divers to confirm the location and attempt a recovery.
Current river conditions are still hazardous and safety is a concern. We would like to thank all the private citizens and pilots who have donated their time and resources to assist in the search.
We will continue to release information as it becomes available.
