    NC - Andrew 'Drew' Browne, 23, Raleigh, 24 May 2014

    Drew Browne


    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.”

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Thanks for posting this, los. What a gut-wrenching, sad story. I have to think the most likely scenario is that Drew is still in the vicinity of the gunshot sound that was heard the night he went missing, including where the last cell phone pings came from (if he survived the gunshot initially, he could have moved around some before succumbing to injury some time later ). As for the discovery of items in his grandmother's Honda, I would like to know when his mom had last been in the car, prior to finding those items four months after Drew's disappearance. If that was the very first time she had gotten inside the vehicle since his disappearance, then perhaps the items were placed there before Drew went missing.

    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
