Missing Person Search To Resume 02 Sep 11

The search for the remains of a Mapleton man missing for nearly a year-and-a-half is set to resume soon. 26-year-old Matthew Thomas Albrecht went missing on April 18th, 2010 in Mankato, and last December a dog found a bone near a creek in a south Mankato neighborhood that was later identified as Albrecht’s leg bone. That prompted a search in the Spring that led authorities to find additional bones, clothing, shoes and Albrecht’s cell phone. The search had been halted due to high water levels in that area, but now that the waters have receded the search can resume. The cause of death for Albrecht is still under investigation, and homicide has not been ruled out at this time.
