Report: Family fears the worst for missing Anoka man


The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the Anoka Police Department posted an alert Saturday for a missing Anoka man.

Police say 22-year-old Kevin Casserly was last seen more than two weeks ago. The Pioneer Press reports that he is believed to be dead.

Casserly's sister Alexandra told the Pioneer Press that, "It's not a search for evidence. They are looking for Kevin; it's a body search."

Parties of up to 120 people searched in parks and wooded areas in the Anoka area as well as the Coon Rapids Dam, the Anoka County Fairgrounds, Greenhaven Golf Course in Anoka and along the Mississippi and Rum rivers.

The Pioneer Press report says he last called his mom on Nov. 11. He told her he had called in sick to work with the flu. He was last seen around 7:30 a.m. the following morning. Alexandra Casserly said that detectives did not give any further details about who he was with or who had seen him.

According to the Star Tribune, police are concerned because Kevin Casserly left his belongings and his car in Anoka.

ABC Newspapers reports that Casserly had been missing for a week before his absence was reported to police on Nov. 17. His car was found near the 2900 block of Seventh Avenue.

The BCA describes Casserly as white, 6-foot-1 and slim. He has brown hair and brown eyes, and a chipped front tooth. He often wears a baseball hat and silver chain.

Anoka police are asking anyone with information to call them at 763-427-1212.
