    Did she have known enemies? A crazy ex, maybe?

    The Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Department (VPSO) has reopened the unsolved 1986 case of the disappearance of a 25-year-old woman.

    On the evening of October 22, 1986, Bambi Brantley was given a ride by a friend to a convenience store on Hwy 8 West. The friend left Brantley at the store around 10 p.m.

    She went inside the store and purchased a fountain drink.

    Around midnight Brantley used a payphone outside of the store to call the Pitt Grill. Brantley was trying to reach her brother Roddy Brantley who was at the restaurant. She left a message for him with the person who answered the phone. “If you see my brother tell him to come home,” were the last known words that anyone heard Brantley say.

    Roddy got the message and went to the home he and his sister shared in Tower Trailer Park. This was some time shortly after midnight. His sister was not home.

    Thinking she left with another friend Brantley was not immediately alarmed. However, when she wasn’t there the next morning he started to worry. His concern was intensified when she didn’t show up for work at Pynes Chrysler where she was employed as a salesperson.

    It was at this point that Brantley notified the Leesville City Police and a missing person investigation was opened.
    Jordan said that, based on the evidence in the files, they think Brantley walked from the store back to her trailer.

    “The evidence file says that a fountain drink was on the floor of her house,” Jordan said. “We think that this is the one she purchased at the store, telling us that she made it back to her home.”

    Jordan said the file also indicated some things in the house were in disarray, pointing to a possible struggle.

    Her Charley Project profile has been updated:

    Details of Disappearance

    Brantley was last seen in Leesville, Louisiana on October 22, 1986. She walked to a convenience store to make a telephone call and never returned. She has never been heard from again.

    Authorities believe Brantley's disappearance is related to the disappearances of Karen Hill, who vanished in November 1988, and Pamela Miller, who went missing in May 1989. The women physically resembled one another and were in the same age group, all three were newcomers to the area, and they disappeared under similar circumstances.

    Miller's skeletal remains were found at Fort Polk in December 1989, but it's unclear whether Hill was ever located.

    Brantley's case remains unsolved. Some agencies give the date of her disappearance as December 22, 1986.
