Details of Disappearance

Brown was last seen in 13500 block of 69th Avenue southeast in Snohomish, Washington on October 11, 2009. Her husband of ten years said he believed she went to her job at the Nintendo store in Kirkland, Washington on October 12. He didn't realize she was missing until she didn't come home that night.

Brown has never been heard from again. It appears that her car was never moved from its spot in the garage and none of her belongings were missing except her wallet and cellular phone, which has been turned off since her disappearance.

Brown was born and raised in Russia and moved to the United States approximately eight years before her disappearance. She was living with her American husband and her son from a previous relationship, who has since returned to Russia. There's no evidence she took a bus or plane anywhere after her disappearance.

When she stopped showing up for work, Brown's coworkers thought she might have left the country for medical care; however, she hadn't said anything to her son about traveling out of the country. Her case remains unsolved.
