    He ran out of gas and probably being on foot the State Trooper thought Brandon was with them. He clearly states "I wasn't talking to them, I totally ran into them" Meaning I have nothing to do with this. I think he also says the first guy was shot and taken into the woods. I can definitely hear what could be gun shots. If so they are pretty far away. At that point I think Brandon panicked. Brandon mentions woods when talking about the "first guy" and Brandon clearly states he's in the middle of a field. From where his truck was parked it should have been too hard to figure out where he was. Of course with 6 years gone by that time has passed and even if they could figure out where these two areas are the likely hood of finding blood or anything that could help is slim. I would still search the area though.

    Brandon’s disappearance haunts me! Quite literally. I have a very close female relative who has been missing for several years and Brandon reminds me of her. She hasn’t always led a good or safe life and unfortunately that has prevented my family from getting anyone to take her disappearance seriously! She left behind children who she loved and she really seemed to be trying to get her life back together. But, as we all know, **** happens to all of at some point in our life and I guess this was just really bad **** at the worst possible time in her life.

    What happened to Brandon, or any of the probable theories we’ve come up with, isn’t what happened to my family member, but I understand how unbearably frustrating it makes things! I can understand where investigators are coming from but how many of them can honestly understand where we are coming from?

    These are just small town, down-to-earth people who couldn’t seem to catch a break. It could be any of us this happens to! I don’t sugarcoat the fact that actions have consequences and people make big mistakes - but NO mistake justifies things like this happening. JMOO

    It’s heartbreaking how little has been done to find Brandon. And I’ve followed the case so I know who has gone the extra mile, I just wish more could be done. As I’m sure we all do. I’ve seriously considered purchasing a drone (which I know nothing about) specifically to take out there! Something is out there. People don’t just disappear into thin air, most especially when there’s little else to disappear into. Again, JMOO. :rantover:

    I still believe the “gunshots” heard in the 911 call is the sound of a vehicle traveling across that bridge. If I were close to similar bridge, I’d do some tests. Might be interesting for someone to “test” record what is heard by someone on the opposite end of the phone from someone crossing that bridge. Car vs truck. Could give an idea as to what vehicle was crossing at that time.

    I do think a lot of other background noises can be attributed to the 911 system. Considering where the call was routed to, I doubt they had a secluded area strictly for incoming 911 calls. But that’s just speculation on my part, I’m not at all familiar with their setup.

    Anywho, THANK YOU to each of you who continue to fight for Brandon and others!

    I personally feel Brandon is not in those fields. I think whoever harmed him (at least 3) took him the other direction in a car and he is a long way from that little town. Unfortunately, Bronte is not equipped to handle this sort of crime I think. Small force, lack of money, lack of interest. I imagine if this had been a local missing this would be a different story. Wish we could "Bring Brandon Home!".

    Did I dream this up or did Brandon call his brother after the 911 call?

    Me too!! I’ve gone back and forth with theories. It’s very difficult for me to believe that even in such a small town everyone is covering something up. I definitely agree with you though that small towns are rarely equipped to handle something like this. Not always due to lack of trying but just lack of experience with these situations. I also feel like if it were “the Sheriff’s son”, it would possibly have been handled differently. My gut tells me he is no longer alive and I think it’s due to his state of mind at the time - whether it was chemically induced or otherwise. He just...got lost and couldn’t find his way back... to his truck or to reality. Ugh! It’s just so sad to think about. :(

    You’re right, it’s time for Brandon to come HOME!

    No, you didn’t dream it! I’ve been going through different sites and reading back over things...checking for anything new. He called 911, then his brother..... and again, his brother/brother’s girlfriend one or more times after that. IIRC

    I want all of you to know that the new private investigator has been in contact with LE and their conversations have been positive. I personally spoke with the sheriff yesterday and our conversation was positive as well. He did tell me that while they did do searches he does recognize that it is possible they may have missed Brandon somehow.

    After listening to the brother's interview, there's little mystery left to this case, tbh. Brandon was trippin' badly on dope and the whole thing with the state-trooper was a drug-induced psychosis. He was in panic-mode, ditched the car, wandered into the wilderness where he died from an O/D or an accident. No police conspiracy, no drug cartels, nothing.

    Came one to see if anyone listened to the interview Brandon's brother did. He says he knows for sure that Brandon was under the influence of drugs and, before he disappeared, claimed that his gf had 'mexicans' coming to get him. I think that part of the case is solved. He was seeing things and paranoid. Still hope they find where he went but people are still making videos on this case and omitting the newest information from the brother or simply haven't heard the interview. This reminds me of the couple who died in the snow storm while under the influence even though the had a truck with a tank full of gas and warm clothes inside and they were also on the phone with 911 for the whole night while freezing but didn't know where they were for police to find them.

    The only reason I think he is not hallucinating is that I swear I hear another voice at the end of the 911 call say "yes" to the ambulance.

    It's going to take a lot to convince me is is Brandon saying yes. Brandon talks on top of the other voice. JMO

    I am convinced Brandon was harmed and taken somewhere else.

    If you ever drive that highway, you will see what I mean. If he had gone off the road, I feel he would have been found by now.

    Too many homes in the immediate area to not have at least smelled something. (sorry I had to type that!)

    I have followed this case from the beginning and it is still such an odd case, that my opinions on this goes all over the place. One thing I’ve learned over the years on WS; never assume something didn’t happen! We have all been so sure of different cases and end up surprised. This one is just so confusing and twists and turns, I could not be positive one way or another. Sad case and bizarre circumstances.

    No, he doesn't. There's like a half-second between them.

    "Do you need an ambulance?"

    "Yeah-no, I need the cops"

    He just corrected himself quickly. Understandable, because he was in a paranoid stupor.

    I personally think it is 2 different voices, but will entertain anything where this case is concerned.

    Nannymo not trying to dismiss your belief or anything at all. But I did explain in my interview with Crawlspace how it was a possibility that it was brandon saying yes then no

    A big ‘thanks’ to whomever brought up and/or linked the newest interview with Brandon’s brother. There was a bit of information I wasn’t aware of.

    Unfortunately, it led me even further down the road of ‘Brandon will probably never be found.’

    I was taken a bit aback by the information provided by the brother in the interview also. Especially because I remember hearing on one of the interview or podcasts that Brandon had a past with drugs but he had cleaned up and definitely would not have been using with a new job at risk but we all are human and make mistakes. I really hope Brandon is found if for no reason than to give his kids some closure and the woman he loved. It's such a sad story for them to be left holding on knowing nothing of what happened.

    My now husband was 'missing' for a little over a week when we were teenagers. We were so close and then on day he just never showed up or bothered to call. His family and I were calling hospitals, jails...anywhere looking for him. His grandmother even started calling the city morgue. I was so worried that I was literally shaking each day and just nausous each day. I had so much anxiety, I couldn't bother with sleep at all. Finally we found out he had been picked up for tickets he owed and his court date was cancelled and reset a few times due to the holiday season. It was only ONE WEEK but I just could not imagine living that for even one year.
    I pray to God this family is relieved of that stress. He seemed like a great guy and father. He deserves to be found.
