Details of Disappearance

Brown was last seen at her residence in Mooringsport, Louisiana on July 6, 2001. Her family members said she left at approximately 9:30 p.m. with an unidentified Caucasian male who was driving a dark-colored, early 1990s model Chevrolet Cavalier. The man is described as approximately 35 years old and 6'1 tall with brown hair over his ears and long sideburns.

Brown has never been heard from again and the circumstances surrounding her disappearance are unknown. She was separated from her husband at the time of her disappearance and raising her two sons alone. After her disappearance investigators received several tips that she had been murdered, but none of these have been confirmed.

In July 2005, authorities began searching a McLeod, Texas well for Brown's remains after a man claimed to have seen a skeleton in there. Nothing was found, however, and the man who reported this was subsequently arrested and charged with criminal mischief for providing investigators with the false information.

Brown's case remains unsolved.
