Details of Disappearance

Brown was last seen getting into a vehicle with a man at her residence in Mount Sterling, Kentucky on September 25, 2014. She has never been heard from again.

There was a possible sighting of Brown walking down the road with Kevin Howard. In October of that year, he and another man, Charles Black were charged with murdering Randall Russ in August. Brown knew all three men. Ultimately, Howard pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter and Black, who helped dispose of the body, pleaded guilty to facilitation to commit robbery and evidence tampering. They were sentenced to twenty and fifteen years in prison respectively.

It's unclear whether Brown's disappearance is connected to Russ's murder, but her family fears for her safety. Her case remains unsolved.
