After more than a week of volunteer search efforts, the body of missing University of Cincinnati student Brogan Dulle was found Monday night in a building next to his apartment.

The search for Brogan Dulle prompted a large search with thousands of volunteers, national media attention and a $25,000 reward. 

Timeline below breaks down the events of Dulle's disappearance:

Sunday, May 18 – 21-year-old Dulle is last seen searching for his cell phone outside of his apartment. He had been out with friends, realized he lost his phone and went back out to look for it.

Monday, May 19 – Family reports Dulle missing when he doesn't show up for work.

Tuesday May 20 – Search groups gather at Gilpin's on West Clifton Avenue. The Facebook page "Help Find Brogan Dulle" is created and gains more than 8,000 members.

Wednesday, May 21 – Search efforts intensify. Volunteers divide the city into a grid system and send groups of 5-8 people to each area to search for Dulle. A vigil is held that night in Anderson. Police say they do not suspect foul play.

About 12 hours later, a call comes in of a possible intruder at the home next door to Dulle's apartment. Police announce at 11:10 p.m. that they believe they found Dulle's body inside the home and that his death appeared to be self-inflicted.

Tuesday, May 27 - Coroner rules Dulle's death a suicide, calling it "a self-inflicted asphyxiation." Police say he climbed a fire escape, broke in a window and hung himself in the basement. A bottle of wine was found in the room but still no sign of Dulle's cell phone.
