Cold case class members help search for missing Michigan man

AUGUSTA, Mich. (AP) -

Students in an Olivet College cold case homicide investigations class are searching for clues in the disappearance of a 21-year-old man who went missing more than a decade ago.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that five members of the class helped search fields and woods Sunday in Augusta.

Brandon Anderson of Battle Creek last was seen June 20, 2005 after a hit-and-run traffic accident on Interstate 94. He was a passenger in the vehicle and ran into nearby woods.

The newspaper reports that police believe Anderson likely died in the woods. His body has not been found.

Olivet associate professor Phil Reed said before Sunday's search that Anderson's family "never heard from him and he has to be here somewhere."

Community Emergency Response Team helped organize the search.
