Canada’s National Post reports that a $10,000 reward has been offered in the Brandon Crisp case. The teen went missing 10 days ago following a family dispute.
As GamePolitics has reported, Brandon’s parents maintain that he was addicted to Call of Duty 4 and they have linked his game play to his disappearance. The local police department seems to be adopting that theory as well. The Ottowa Citizen today quotes Barrie P.D. Sgt. Dave Goodbrand:
Every day gets more and more concerning for his safety, especially with no contact. We’re not getting any contact from his (computer) user accounts and his video-game accounts. And that’s concerning because he was so addicted and he left home because of that.
Probably correctly, the police doubt that Brandon would log in under a new account:
From my understanding, he has worked so hard to build his [in-game] credibility, and if you start a new profile, you have to start at the bottom.
GP: Anyone with information concerning Brandon Crisp’s whereabouts is requested to contact the Barrie P.D.
