    Tillman's Corner Teen Missing for a Week

    Family and friends traveled from Tillmans Corner to search the woods near Styx River. "This was the last place her phone was 'pinged'," says her father Wallace Hanke. "They found the signal bouncing off one of these towers and we haven't talked to her in over a week. We need some help finding her."

    "Her uncle has committed suicide and supposedly he was the last one she was with and so we're worried about that," says Hanke. "I'm hoping to God and I really don't think he would hurt my baby," says Brittney's mother.

    Two-day search of Styx river area yields no evidence in disappearance of missing Mobile woman

Dennis is the National Director of Search Operation for the KlaasKIDS Foundation, a California-based organization helping with the search.

    Twist in Brittney Wood's Disappearance

    Authorities are looking into the possibility that the arrests could be connected with Brittney’s disappearance. Her brother mentioned her possibly being scared and in hiding when he was interviewed earlier this month.

    Brittney Wood Case Shrouded in Mystery...

    Wood has been missing for almost three weeks, and a national organization KlaasKIDS Foundation even came into town and organized a search near Robertsdale, Alabama, across the bay
    from the city of Mobile. It was believed her cell phone signal was detected in that area. Police aren't saying why the search is now focused in the opposite direction, in South Mobile County near Grand Bay, Alabama.

    Few Leads in Case of Missing Teen Mom

    Wood’s family reported her missing June 2 after she "packed her bags and walked out of the house” May 30.
    "She left with personal items with the intent of being gone at least overnight and that was not unusual,” [Mobile PD Cpl Chris] Levy said.

    "How long she intended to leave, there is no way to know until we find her.

    "We believe her cell phone went to that area [Styx River],” Lowery said. "We don’t have any information to believe she was with the cell phone at the time.”

    "All we reported to the family is that we had information through our investigation that puts [Wood] in the Grand Bay area or south Mobile County at or around same time [Holland] is committing suicide,” Levy said.

    Regardless, the MPD has devoted a detective to the case.

    The search continued as authorities arrested relative after relative in connection to an alleged child sex ring involving Brittney's family and friends. Investigators said they had been looking to talk to Brittney about the sex crimes before she even went missing.

    "We oftentimes look for that golden nugget. That one person that can make the difference in your case," said Detective Eric Winberg, former lead investigator on the family sex abuse investigation in Baldwin County. "In this particular case, Brittney Wood was that person. She was the person that could tell the whole story."

    In a series of Facebook messages investigators believe are between Brittney and one of the alleged victims, Brittney writes on May 27, "Hey beautiful. How are you? Tell me what's going on. I don't know what's true and what you said."
    The alleged victim then identifies relatives Randall Scott Wood, Dustin Kent, and Donald Holland as abusers - writing in part: "They raped me."
    The conversation continues for quite some time, sharing heartbreaking details. Brittney, however, ends it saying in part, "I love you. I'm sorry."

    "I feel that that was their attempt to reach out to one another and say, 'Hey, this is what's going on here,'" said Det. Winberg.

    The alleged victim then writes repeatedly to Brittney on May 28 and again on May 30, with no response.
    May 30 was the last time Brittney was seen alive, traveling with her uncle, Donald Holland, to a home in the Styx River area in Baldwin County.

    Relatives of missing mom arrested on sex charges

    Updated: Wednesday, October 23 2013, 06:59 PM CDT
    Her mother, Chessi Wood, was part of Tuesday night's roundup. But unlike the others charged with sex crimes against children, her alleged crime was an old traffic violation, something she was quick to point out.

    A lot of the information that has been gathered for this case has been revealed in interview rooms at the Child Advocacy Center. Director Pat Guyton says they've never seen a case quite like this. "In my 25 years of being here at the Child Advocacy Center," he said, "I have never seen a case like this involving so many alleged perpetrators and so many alleged victims within one family grouping that keeps expanding and expanding, expanding..."

    New arrests deepen mystery of missing teen
    Updated: Wednesday, October 23 2013, 09:31 PM CDT
    MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI)

    Pat Guyton is director of the Mobile Child Advocacy Center and thought he'd seen everything. But he says Tuesday night's roundup of friends and members of the Brittney Wood family takes this case to a new level.

    "We have never had a case like this where there are so many alleged perpetrators within the same family," he said, "molesting, allegedly, so many children within the extended family grouping."

    "I believe there are people walking around today who know what happeend to Brittney Wood," said Guyton. "I don't know who they are, but I believe the circumstances surround her DEATH... I believe there are people walking around today who know what happened to Brittney Wood and have a good idea what happened to Brittney Wood. They may not have been involved but they have a good idea what happened to her. And while this case is not directly involved with the Brittney Wood case, there are certainly some indirect indications that lead us back to the disappearance of Brittney Wood."

    "We've found additional victims, and we have four suspects that have picked up 13 additional felonies," said Sgt. Chris Levy...

    "This deal, many people probably assume this was back when we made the last arrest but we're not finding that. We're finding more victims as we continue on," Levy said...

    "What we have here is a group of people who have a culture, whey believe this type of behavior is acceptable. We're not allowing that to be acceptable, we're going to continue to investigate it until we can stop the behavior," said Levy.

    Kim Aikin is Brittney's aunt on her dad's side. She believes there are several more victims. She also thinks Brittney was a victim herself.

    “I think someone knows. If they didn't participate in her death. I think they know. It's time for her to come home now. Its time for her to come home,” said Aikin.

    Investigators say Brittney's disappearance is unrelated to the sex abuse case.

    Records from Mobile County Metro Jail show authorities have yet to book Nelton Lloyd "Butch" Morgan, 47, a Wood family friend.

    Morgan is facing charges of first-degree rape and sex abuse of a child less than 12. Court records show he is also wanted on a pair of outstanding warrants signed in 2012 after he failed to pay fees associated with a 2011 conviction on charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest.

    "I can only speak for myself. And all I can say is I haven't touched no one," said Chessie Wood. "They gonna put me in the paddy wagon, and then go get all the monsters and put them in the van with me and then throw me in front of the TV camera in front of the jail over a 9 year old suspended drivers license!"

    "They didn't just hurt their children, they hurt mine too," said Wood. She alleges Brittney Wood and her son were abused.

    In a phone interview with the Press-Register/AL.com, Mobile County Assistant District Attorney Nicki Patterson – who is the lead prosecutor in the above cases, and specializes in handling child cases – shared some insights into how she and her colleagues balance protecting the young victims and bringing predators to justice.

    “This is a more layered group than we have seen or uncovered here in Mobile,” Patterson said.

    “Family members sharing their children, unfortunately, is not new,” she said. “It is not that unusual from what we know.”

    “If you’re getting to a third generation and people are still choosing to abuse, sometimes these networks take place,” she said.

    By John Underwood

    ROBERTSDALE – Another arrest has been made in Baldwin County, reportedly part of an ongoing sexual abuse investigation involving the family of a missing woman last seen in the Styx River area more than a year and a half ago.

    In a press release issued Monday, the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of Jennifer Gonzales Moore, 32, of Magnolia Springs on charges of production of child pornography and second degree sexual abuse.

    The charges stem from an ongoing investigation by the Sheriff’s Office, the Baldwin County District Attorney’s Office and the Baldwin County Department of Human Resources in the Holland sexual abuse investigation.

    While FOX10 News has learned Moore is an active assistant with the local cub scouts, authorities said her charges stem from child victims connected to a sex ring investigation involving family and friends of missing mother Brittney Wood.

    “They’ve had horrific things done to them,” said BCSO Major Anthony Lowery about the children involved. “Horrific things. Anytime that more charges are added we understand it was something else that was done to them.”
