On October 13th, 15 -year-old Brandon Crisp went missing from his parents' house in Ontario, Canada after an argument over video games. He still has not been found. Police are now turning to his Xbox LIVE account in the hopes of turning up clues to his whereabouts. According to his parents, Crisp was an active Call of Duty 4 player.
Microsoft Corp. agreed to bypassed its usual privacy protocol to help the investigation, and the company donated $25,000 toward a reward for information on the teen, bumping it up to $50,000.
Although no one is making his gamertag public, the police are apparently going to contact people Brandon knew online to see if anyone has any idea where he is. They are first looking at his gaming clan, then branching out from there.
"He (Brandon) was getting good enough that there's a possibility he was expanding into other clans," police Sgt. Dave Goodbrand said.
Hundreds of volunteers and police have been searching for the boy since he went missing on Canadian Thanksgiving day.
