Raleigh man’s mysterious disappearance weighs on family
Raleigh, North Carolina -
One afternoon last week, Raleigh police Detective Zeke Morse met John Browne near the last place that Browne’s son was known to be on the night he disappeared nearly two years ago.
Browne asked Morse to meet him along Wycliff Road in West Raleigh, in front of the Lake Boone shopping center, to try to determine what direction his son might have been walking that night, in
hopes of mounting yet another search.
Andrew Thomas Browne – Drew to his family and friends – vanished on the night of May 24, 2014, when he was 23. And except for the mysterious appearance of some items of his four months
later, his parents, Martha and John Browne, and his older brother Lee haven’t seen or heard from him.
“At this point, we just don’t know if foul play has taken place or Drew is just off the grid or he ended his life that night,” Martha Browne said. “We just don’t have any idea.”
Drew’s disappearance was both dramatic and sudden. It prompted a massive police search, including a State Highway Patrol helicopter, in the blocks around Martin Middle School late on a
Saturday night into Sunday morning. Police later widened their search for signs of Drew in the neighborhoods and woods west of the Beltline, near Rex Hospital and the N.C. Museum of Art, but
have turned up nothing.
Morse says he doesn’t know what happened to Drew.
“Obviously, as time goes by, we become more and more concerned,” he said. “But until we find Andrew, we just don’t know.”

Possible sighting the day after he fled into the woods. Anonymous tip in March of 2016. I think they can rule out suicide the night of him leaving since the officers were close to the gun shots and they not only have not found his body but the rifle and hand gun he had.
Andrew “Drew” Browne was seen walking with a rifle near the former Palms Apartments off Lake Boone Trail after sunrise early one morning in May 2014
