Updated Information: Authorities Work to Locate Northeast Iowa Boy Who Walked Away from School

Authorities in Winneshiek County are still searching for a boy who went missing from school this morning.

Decorah Police and the Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office are looking for Brandon Quam, who walked away from Decorah High School sometime after 10 a.m. this morning.  Brandon has some special needs and may need some assistance. He is also described as often being non-responsive, so he may not understand or engage with people he encounters.

In an updated Facebook post, Decorah Police say the best way for people to help is simply look around the Decorah area. Authorities also asked to check in vehicles, yards and any areas that might be a “nice quiet place to rest.” Brandon was last seen in the downtown Decorah area. Contact Decorah Police if you have any information as to his whereabouts.  563-382-3667
