Casserly called his mom Nov. 11 saying he had the flu and had called in sick to work. Anoka County Sheriff’s Office Detective Mike Schantzen says he was last seen the next day in the Anoka area but couldn’t give other details.

Schantzen says at this point they don’t know if he’s dead or alive.

His sister Alexandra Casserly said he previously used methamphetamine but was clear of that now. She says he was very involved in his two children’s lives and he just wouldn’t disappear.
