Mandan Man brings closure to a Bismarck family

The news reached us quickly and unfortunately began to sink in as the minutes passed

Tragically, a young man who has been missing since 2021 has been officially identified as Chase Hurdle — a high school student who was last seen on camera in the hallways of Bismarck High and then spotted near Memorial Bridge in Bismarck — around 9:25 a.m. back on November 2, 2021 – no sign of Chase, no evidence of any damage – just a town and family in complete sadness – what happened? We may never know the reason for his disappearance, but a body was found last Sunday (June 9, 2024).

His name is Jack Gauger, a hero from early last year in Mandan

You may remember this amazing story: Last year, around January, Jack Gauger looked out the window and across the street he saw an explosion in a neighbor’s house – without fear he put his life in danger from an elderly couple to pass through the flames. and broken glass. Check out some photos and read about his heroic act. I was grateful to interview Jack and we became Facebook friends. I saw his first message four days ago: “A body found! That’s all he said. The news broke this afternoon…Jack found Chase obstacle.

“On a pontoon…”

Jack was on a pontoon with his two children when he saw what appeared to be a body “…tangled in the trees.” He kept his boys at bay and moved closer – immediately calling the sheriff and the authorities showed up – next door to Briardale. As you can imagine, Jack was in utter disbelief – he knew this was a dramatic ending to a tragic mystery – but he wasn’t sure who it was until the police identified Chase from his dental records and his clothing.

The family now has closure

I will never forget the conversation I had with Darius Hurdle (Chase’s father) on December 12, 2021 – he and his family kept his room pristine, untouched, with Christmas presents waiting to be opened by his returning son…” My heart aches for the Hurdle family as today they have closure – I know Jack Gaugen is hurting too.
