We told you earlier Monday about the sad story emerging in Green Bay.
Michael Philbin, the 21-year-old son of offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, has been reported missing. Packers coach Mike McCarthy spoke on the matter Monday.
McCarthy said the organization has a “family first philosophy” and that they are “holding out hope” for Michael Philbin. It was a strange atmosphere at McCarthy’s media session. The Packers have understandably canceled their open locker room media session with players Monday.
“That was as subdued as I’ve seen Mike McCarthy at a news conference,” Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette wrote.
Joe Philbin is in Oshkosh where his son was reported missing. Divers have been searching the Fox River in Oshkosh, where police were called after an employee at a nearby company thought he heard someone fall into the ice and call for help at 2:30 a.m. Sunday, according to the Oshkosh Northwestern.
A body of a 20-25-year old man was recovered Monday afternoon with no identification.
Michael Philbin was last seen at 2:00 a.m. Police are not connecting the two events.
We’d like to send our thoughts to Philbin and the entire Packers family during this difficult time.
