The grandmother of a 14-year-old Indiana boy says he was “brainwashed” before he went missing on June 16 in Ohio.

Bryson Muir’s parents, former NFL player Daniel Muir and his wife, Kristen, have been named as “persons of interest” in their son’s disappearance.

Indiana State Police (ISP) say Bryson is in extreme danger. Bryson was last seen on June 16 after his mother picked him up from his grandmother’s house in Cleveland, Ohio.

According to 13 News, his grandmother, Cheryl Wright, called police to report he had a black eye and other facial injuries.

Bryson reportedly told Wright that his father beat him and he deserved it.

Police pulled over Kristen Muir’s car “within minutes” after she left Wright’s home, but Bryson was not in the car.

Wright gave the following statement to 19 News:

“If anyone sees him, or knows where he is, please come forward and call the police. I’m holding onto hope that he’s alive and is ok. I’ve reached out to my daughter and she will not respond. They have five kids together and he has two others. As far as I’m concerned, they’re all in danger.”

Daniel and Kristen Muir agreed to bring Bryson to the Indiana state police to prove he is safe. But they “backed out” of a meeting arranged for noon on Friday, June 28.

Cass County Department of Child Services contacted ISP to investigate domestic battery against Bryson. Police entered the family’s compound at the 1700 block of US Highway 24 in Logansport, Indiana, said ISP.

Police said no one was at home. The property belongs to a religious group called the Servant Leader’s Foundation, a non-profit religious group based out of Kokomo, Indiana. The group is believed to be a cult.

Daniel Muir is a former NFL player who played from 2007 to 2013.
