    AL - Justin Brown, 17, Mobile County, 22 Feb 2017

    Bizarre twist in case of missing Mobile County teen

    The Mobile County Sheriff's Office is investigating a peculiar missing teen case. It's been five weeks since 17-year-old Justin Brown's family has seen him. His mother, Regina Smith walked into his bedroom to wake him up for school February 22nd, but instead she found the bed made. His backpack, shoes, wallet, even his cell phone were all still there.

    "All his stuff was there, except him," said Smith.

    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."

    Such a terrible story. It does sound like someone has coached him. There was a case in the U.K. not too long ago where an 18 year old boy coached a 13 or 24 year old boy and things did not end well. I hope this situation works out much better.

    Thanks for posting Los I wanted to add from your link:
    The car he got for his birthday the week before was also parked in the driveway.
    ETA all his electronics have been wiped clean.

    From the website of Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Community Information Center:
    "He was last seen wearing Pajamas bottoms, no shoes or shirt."

    Oh my gosh, I would be very scared if something like this were to happen to one of my teenage children. Is this really all the information they have available and feel comfortable releasing? I wish we had more to go on, and also additional -and better quality- photos.

    I agree on a better photo.

    Staying in his room for hours, playing online computer games.

    My first thought is suicide, even with the wiping of electronics.

    Running off with someone from the Internet is scary but at least he'd still be alive in that scenario.

    How frightening for his parents!

    Here's what I don't understand:

    If he went off with someone else, wouldnt he need more clothes than just PJ bottoms and no shoes? I could potentially see a suicide happening in just PJ pants. But running away? But then when you think about him fixing his bed to look like he slept in it.....why would he do that? To buy time. So then I am back to the runaway idea.

    So does he have more clothes with him that they aren't realizing? Did someone who groomed him give him clothes? The clothing aspect of it is bizarre to me.

    Certainly his clothing description was what he went to bed in, not what he left in. If he has a cell phone, there should be records of activity, even with the data wiped clean. Phone calls, texts, data usage. If they know his email address, they can find user names and groups he was active in. Come on! This is a child and it's been a month and a half! I get the feeling his mom needs someone strong to advocate and push. He Needs to be found to find out what's going on. He looks sad. Anyone find social media for him?

    I'm on my phone and keep messing up. But his little local town fb page has 2 posts with a little more info. Scroll down to Feb. 23 and maybe 25? But why nothing since, when they post about everything! !#

    Smith says her son was scheduled to have a root canal and by now should have a pretty bad toothache so may visit a dentist....

    Also says all his belonging are accounted for, except him.

    I have to say- sometimes when you need a root canal, the tooth actually stops hurting. Mine did. So he might not show up to a dentist. So little info about friends or anything. His dad and brother are in Florida. Maybe he met a person there? His mom seems to be trying- she responds and thanks everyone. She Doesn't Seem To Be having luck getting his story in the media though. So hard.
