Looking for Reinis Kulins 1923 Rembate Latvia

My father, Otto Voldermars Kulins, is searching for his brother, Reinis Kulins. Reinis was born May 15th 1923 in Rembate region of Riga near Lielvarde. The family farm was called "Negas." The parents of Reinis were Otto and Emma (Apsitis) Kulins who both stayed at the farm all their lives and are buried in a cemetery near there.

At the age of 19, Reinis was forced to join the Latvian Legion, 19th / 15th division. He was injured in Volhov (Volkhov) swamps, Russia. He was last seen alive by a family friend (Janis Antuns) in April 1945 in the Pomerania region of Germany when separated from the military unit. Reinis wore glasses and had a "lazy" eye.

Any information at all is gratefully appreciated.
