Bryn Hargreaves Missing

Hi, my name is Gareth Hargreaves; I'm the brother of ex Wigan, St Helens and Bradford player Bryn Hargreaves, who has been missing in the USA since 3rd January 2022. 
Bryn left the UK and rugby league 10 years ago to go to the USA. He has had some unfortunate life events and became isolated due to covid, leading to mental health issues of late.
We appreciate all the hard work of the local/state police departments and helpful community, but unfortunately, after 5 MONTHS, there have been NO LEADS OR PROGRESS.
My mum and brother flew out to the USA on 28th January for 7 weeks, thanks to the support of Rugby League Cares who funded the outgoing flights and 4 weeks of car hire/accommodation, for which we will be eternally grateful. Despite gathering further information and investigating many avenues, there are still NO LEADS OR PROGRESS.
We are no closer to finding Bryn after 5 months and fear for his welfare.
We would now like to appoint a private investigator, following legal advice from a former assistant district attorney in the USA.
For this, we need your help! We hope friends, work colleagues, well-wishers and the rugby league community will support us in our quest to find my brother and bring him home!
Our goal is to raise £20,000 to fund private investigators to look into Bryn's disappearance.
All monies donated will principally  be used to fund the investigation into Bryn's disappearance as we have some leads that may lead to criminal outcomes.

The police have been unable to access his phone/laptop. We would like to send these to private companies to try gain access.
Any remaining balance will be donated to Rugby League Cares to continue their great work in the aftercare of players and generally within the rugby league community.

We will keep everyone updated as to how the funds are being spent in our search for Bryn.
