BRAYMER, Mo. — A community more than 600 miles away, mourned two brothers from Wisconsin who are believed to be dead.

A candlelight vigil was held in Baymer, Missouri Friday night, July 26 for 35-year-old Nick Diemel and 24-year-old Justin Diemel.

Residents there say it’s been a tough week watching and waiting as investigators search the cattle farm belonging to Garland Nelson.

Nelson was charged with tampering a vehicle which was found abandoned at a park-and-ride 35 miles from his property.
