TOPEKA (KSNT)  — Brandon Kyle Bourbon has missing since April 2nd. The former University of Kansas and Washburn University football player has been reported missing by the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Bourdon is 24 years old and is from Potosi, Mo.

POTOSI, Mo. (AP) — Authorities in eastern Missouri are searching for a former football player for Washburn and the University of Kansas.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol posted a missing person’s report that said 24-year-old Brandon Kyle Bourbon has been missing since Saturday.

Washington County Sheriff’s Capt. Zach Jacobsen said Tuesday that Bourbon’s family last saw him Saturday evening in the Potosi area, where his family lives. He says Bourbon’s car, a silver minivan, is also missing, and that Bourbon’s phone is off.

Bourbon played football for Kansas until 2014, and transferred to Washburn for the 2015 season.

Jacobsen says since leaving college, Bourbon has been living in the Potosi area. He says authorities don’t suspect foul play but are concerned because it’s out of character for Bourbon to leave without contacting his family.
