Family continues search for Paul Brandt
Although Cook County Law Enforcement has suspended its ground search for a missing Grand Marais man, his family continues its efforts to find some sign of him. Paul Brandt, 82, went missing while blueberry picking up the Gunflint Trail on Thursday afternoon, August 1.
According to the first public notification from Cook County Law Enforcement, Brandt is 6’1, 190 pounds and has gray hair and blue eyes. He wears glasses. It is not known what he is wearing.
At the time he went missing, his family described Brandt as in good health and “pretty fit.” Brandt lives at the lodge operated by his family, Nor’Wester on the Gunflint Trail and it is unusual for him not to return home.
Gunflint Trail residents are taking part in a continued search of the area. The Brandt family is spearheading the efforts. They ask anyone who would like to assist with the search to contact Karyn at Nor’Wester Lodge at (218) 388-2252. Search parties begin at Nor’Wester each morning at 9 a.m.
