Dozens of people over 40 cars showed up in support of helping a family search for a missing Beatrice man, Sunday morning.
“The family we just, emotions are so up and down and we just want to find him,” said Steve Swarthout, Mark’s brother.
At the head of the search for 56-year-old Mark Swarthout is a local private detective who felt a personal connection to the matter.
“I actually was watching Channel 8 News,” said Erik Rezabek. “You guys did a story on it and through that message that you put out, you mentioned they both lost children. I also lost my daughter at birth and something just kind of rang in my head and in my heart that I needed to help this family out.”
So Rezabek volunteered his time, leading a group of volunteers to look south for Swarthout’s truck, a black 2012 Dodge Ram pickup with a chrome bug shield and chrome wheels.
“That’s where prayer comes in and he gave us Erik and Erik’s helping us find my brother,” said Swarthout.
Swarthout went missing June 23rd and authorities report his last cell phone ping was at the Casey’s in Palmyra.
That’s where the search began, a community search covering from Syracuse to Nebraska City. The family was in awe of the support and hope to find answers soon.
“We are kind of eliminating something today that he’s not in this area so even after today unless he’s found it’s going to continue,” said Rezabek. “People are welcome to reach out to me if they want to help.”
