He believes his mother was murdered, but there are few clues in Gutierrez’s case.

Monica Bowie

May 4, 2010 by  
Filed under General

Missing Since: 07/05/07
Missing from Atlanta, Georgia
Classification: Missing
Age at disappearance : 34 years old
Height: 5’4
Weight: 135
Hair: Black
Eyes: Brown
Distinguishing Characteristics: Bowie wears braces on her teeth.
Clothing Description: A dark green dress shirt and blue jeans.

Details of Disappearance
Bowie was last seen at Lenox Apartments where she lived in the 2100 block of Gables Drive northeast in Atlanta, Georgia. She was abducted from the parking lot. Witnesses heard a woman scream for help at 11:00 p.m. and then saw a maroon 2002 Mercury Sable driving off. Inside the vehicle were two men in their late twenties or early thirties. One of the men was heavyset and had a beard. Evidence of a struggle was found in the parking lot, including a woman’s jacket, eyeglasses and two broken fingernails. The car seen leaving the scene was located the next day, abandoned and burned. It was badly damaged. On July 7, Authorities arrested Jasper Keels and charged him with the theft of the car. He had borrowed it from an acquaintance on July 4 and never returned it. A photograph of Keels is posted below this case summary.

On June 20, two weeks prior to her disappearance, Bowie and her fiance, Shernotta Walters, were arrested on felony charges after marijuana and a gun were found in her vehicle. Walters was driving; he had borrowed the vehicle from Bowie. Bowie maintained she had no idea how the drugs and gun got in her car. The charges against both of them were eventually dropped, but Walters was jailed because he was on parole and possession of a gun constituted a violation. He was still incarcerated on the day she disappeared. Authorities questioned him about Bowie’s abduction, but he is not being called a suspect and her family does not believe he was involved. It is unclear whether the criminal case is connected to Bowie’s abduction. She has no prior criminal history. She and Walters planned to get married on March 30, 2007.

Bowie had worked as an exotic dancer for a time after she moved to Atlanta from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1999, but had ceased dancing by the time she was abducted. At the time of her disappearance, she owned two businesses: Go2girls Promotions Inc., a hip-hop production company, and LaCoca Wear Clothing, a clothing boutique. She met with her lawyer just hours before her disappearance; he says she was behaving normally and appeared to be in good spirits.

Keels was originally only charged with the theft of the abduction car and with drug possession, but in September 2007 he was also charged with Bowie’s kidnapping. Investigators do not know whether he knew her, but they theorize the abduction was not a random act and was connected to illegal drug activity. They stated they expected to arrest other individuals in connection with the abduction. Bowie’s body has not been located and no one has been charged with causing her death.

Bowie grew up in Pittsburgh and graduated from Perry Traditional Academy and Cheyney University of Pennsylvania. Her disappearance remains unsolved and foul play is suspected.

Brandi Wells

May 1, 2010 by  
Filed under General

Missing Since: 08/03/06
Missing from: Longview, Texas
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date of Birth: 11/28/82
Age at disappearance: 23
Height:4’11
Weight: 120 – 130 pounds
White Female
Hair:Blonde
Eyes:Blue
Clothing/Jewelry Description: A floral print brown and cream-colored tube top with a V cut over the hip, rust-colored gaucho pants, black strapless high-heeled sandals with a floral applique.
Distinguishing Characteristics:Wells’s nicknames are Blinky and Boo. She blinks frequently. Her hair was slightly below her shoulders at the time of her disappearance, without bangs. Her ears are pierced one time each, and she has French tips on her fingernails. Wells broke her left thumb at age ten and had a pin implanted, but the pin was removed after the injury healed.

Details of Disappearance
Wells was last seen in Longview, Texas on August 3, 2006. She planned to go to a pawnshop to get some money, but ended up going to Graham Central Station, a nightclub, instead. Wells is known to have arrived at the club at 10:30 p.m. She was unfamiliar with the area where the club was located, and had to call them several times to ask for directions. By the time she got there, her car was almost out of gasoline and she asked other customers for assistance, but it is unclear whether anyone offered to help her. She left alone shortly after midnight. She was not intoxicated at the time. She has never been heard from again.

Wells’s black four-door 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix, which has the Texas license plate number J50ZTD and damage to the passenger side just above the front wheel, disappeared with her. It was found five days later parked westbound on Interstate 20 at Texas Highway 31, just outside of Longview and 300 yards west of FM 2087. Inside were some of her personal belongings, including her wallet, purse and her ex-boyfriend’s nonfunctional cellular phone. There was no sign of Wells at the scene and no indications of a struggle, but the driver’s seat was reportedly pushed back, as if someone taller than Wells had driven it last. After Wells disappeared, there was some activity on her own cellular phone, which had disappeared with her. Three people found the phone and used it. All three individuals took a polygraph test; one of them, a man, failed it. The man has not been publicly identified, and though he has been interviewed multiple times by police, he has not been called a suspect in Wells’s case.

At the time of her disappearance, Wells resided with a roommate in Brownsboro, Texas. She is a graduate of Chapel Hill High School and, in August 2006, was looking forward to starting a new job at Wal-Mart and starting classes at Trinity Valley Community College. She dreamed of a career as a kindergarten or first-grade schoolteacher. Wells may have been taken against her will and foul play is possible in her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.

Mysterious man claims missing East Texas woman is alive

March 10, 2010
TYLER (KYTX) – The mother of a missing East Texas woman claims she may have received a break in her daughter’s disappearance.

Brandi Wells disappeared from a Longview nightclub three and a half years ago. Her mother, Ellen Tant, says a man named “Tim” called her this weekend claiming Brandi was alive and living in Kansas City, Missouri.

The call was disconnected before Ellen could get any more information. Now she’s pleading for the man to call her back.

“You know you kind of wonder if this could be a good lead, but then it’s the only hope I’ve had in 3 and a half years that she’s alive and well. So it’s all I’ve got so I’m going to run with it,” explained Tant.

Brandi Wells was last seen at Graham Central Station in Longview.
