Volunteers like Dave Rader with the Ohio chapter of Texas EquuSearch said he wants to help out.
“We actually seen it on the news and you know it just seemed like the kind of kid that just wouldn’t up and walk away and I felt like we had to do something,” Rader said.
Rader said he and his group cannot officially help search until the Cincinnati Police Department gives him the green light, but he’s ready to go when called upon and will at least give the family guidance on how to conduct searches.
“We’ve got trained professionals to go out with the search teams to show them what to do and what not to do,” said Rader.
“We would like to thank everyone who has searched, posted, shared or tweeted in our efforts to find Brogan, including those who love him and know what a wonderful and caring young man he is. We also want to thank the many complete strangers who are working so hard to help find Brogan,” Dulle’s family said in a statement.

Cincinnati police said they have video that shows a missing man shortly after he left his apartment.
Assistant Chief James Whalen said a man investigators believe is Brogan Dulle, 21, was seen on video near his apartment around 2 a.m. Sunday apparently searching for his cellphone in the street. He was carrying a light of some sort to help see better, Whalen said.
Friends and family members of the UC sophomore handed out fliers at a booth at the Taste of Cincinnati Saturday afternoon.
“We always hope, try to stay positive,” volunteer Janelle Maxwell said. “It’s just getting harder and harder as the days go, because there’s nothing, no leads, no nothing.”
They said they plan on being at the food festival all weekend in hopes of getting new tips about Dulle’s whereabouts.
“It’s possible he could be out here or someone here could have seen him, so this is a really, really important spot to be to just get the word out,” volunteer Darla Maxwell said.
