EUGENE, Ore. -- More than two months after 27-year-old Michael Bryson disappeared, a new podcast has launched to try and solve the mystery.

Amanda Popineau of Eugene started Nowhere to be Found at the end of September. As of Monday, over 5,000 listeners have downloaded it. Popineau said the goal of the podcast is to synthesize all the information into one place.

As part of the podcast, Popineau has interviewed Bryson's parents and people who were at Hobo Camp Campground the night he went missing. This creates a near firsthand account of what might have happened to Bryson.

"It's captivating to me," Popineau said. "I like a good mystery and that was captivating. But then getting to know the Brysons and everybody involved, it captivated me in a different way where I feel connected to them."

Popineau doesn't know Bryson on a personal basis but she has a connection with his father, Parrish Bryson.

"So Parrish, Michael's dad, used to be my UPS driver at the optometry office I use to work for," Popineau said. "I would see him here and there a couple of times a week."

Parrish said he was hesitant at first about the podcast. But he said he likes how Popineau created a place where more information about his son's disappearance can be accessed and shared beyond Lane County.

"Her podcast has reached out to another audience," Bryson said. "It's made us ask different questions and it also shed light on other people who have been either at the party or may have been passersby."

The Lane County Sherriff's Office said they're investigating every lead. Parrish said they won't stop looking until his son is found.

"We've had some pretty good leads, we had a couple that turn up nothing," Bryson said. "There will be no stone left unturned until my son comes home."
