Sad Ending To Missing Bismarck Man.
The mystery of the missing Bismarck man has sadly come to an end. Missing since early this week, the Bismarck police department received a tip two nights ago about a vehicle spotted in the Missouri River, close to the Fox Island boat ramp. The search went on for most of the day with help from the Burleigh County Dive Rescue & Recovery team. There were no clues on whether the vehicle had any connection to the missing man. The car was found last night, a dark-collared sedan, as it was pulled out of the river thanks in part to a huge crane, a body was also part of their find. The Burleigh County Sheriff’s Department was on sight as well. Police did not release any information on the body until the family was notified.
This morning the fears that the missing Bismarck resident Bradley Agard was the body police found last night, was confirmed this morning from Bismarck Police Department Sgt. Mark Gaddis. There will be an autopsy on Agard on Monday, and the case remains open until what they are able to find out. Bradley was 37 years old and was last seen early Monday morning around 4:30 when he left his Meadow Lane residence. As of today, police are saying that there is no foul play suspected. Authorities have also not released any info on how Agard died. The North Dakota Highway Patrol, Bismarck Rural Fire, North Dakota Game and Fish were all part of the missing man's search.
