The family of Bryon Macron released a statement Friday asking for the public’s help. It was the first message from family members in the week since the husband, father and Lafayette Township trustee was reported missing.

“My family and I would like to thank the investigators working to bring Bryon home and those who are keeping our family in their thoughts and prayers,” said Macron’s wife, Victoria, in a one-page handwritten statement.
“The local authorities and the FBI are doing all they can, but we need the public’s help. Anyone with any information is encouraged to contact the Medina County Sheriff’s Department and Sgt. Kevin Ross of the detective bureau at (330) 725-9116.”
The statement was signed, “Thank You, Victoria Macron.”
Macron, 45, was reported missing Dec. 16.
Sheriff’s deputies found his office at the Lafayette Township Hall in disarray, indicating that there may have been an altercation, according to a previous news release. Blood was found in his office and in his black SUV, which was found in a parking lot on Beachside Drive in Chippewa Lake. Macron was appointed to his position from a pool of 14 candidates in October 2010.
“We couldn’t ask for a better colleague,” trustees Lynda Bowers and Michael Costello said in a statement. “As a trustee Bryon works hard and pulls his weight. He is cooperative, fair, compassionate, works well with the employees and respects the people we serve.”
The investigation is being conducted by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation with the assistance of the Cleveland office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Medina County Sheriff’s Office.
A message to Sheriff’s Capt. David Centner was not returned Friday.
In a prepared one-page statement, Centner said the sheriff’s office “has released all of the current information concerning the disappearance … When additional information becomes available, we will release it at that time.”
Centner added: “This is a difficult time for our community and the Macron family. We have been working very hard to investigate this case and will continue to do so.”
Macron, a former U.S. Marine, is the father of three daughters.
