    Details of Disappearance

    Brown was last seen at approximately 9:30 p.m. on May 13, 2001 in the vicinity of the 2900 block of Midwood Street in Lansing, Michigan. He left that location with an acquaintance, saying he would be back later that night. Brown has never been heard from again.

    Brown's family believes he is deceased. He missed his brother's wedding, which took place in June 2001, and it is uncharacteristic of him to be out of contact with his loved ones. His case remains unsolved.
