So sorry for you all. I am a child of a missing father so I can relate to this very well. Patsy Muse (Maggie's Mom)
No matter the circumstances, Brandon is missing and those children need to know where their daddy is. I have kept the entire family in my thoughts and prayers.
Sending prayers and hope to his family and friends.
i just happenned on this case.Are their any new leads? i am so sorry for what the family has to go through that 911 call just breaks my heart keeping this young man in my thoughts and prayers i have 5 sons and if ever one of them came up missing ??? and his smile just lights up the page feeling sad hope this gets closure soon!
i posted i wrong spot a few minutes ago i just wanted to say brandon has a beautifull smile and looks very devoted to his kids and so what if he had a warrant people make mistakes i am the mother of 5 adult sons and this just makes me sad... hope your family has peace and hope.
I feel like I seen this man before.. im downloading the 911 call now and going to listen to it over and over. hoping to get something out of it. prayers to Brandon <3.
I feel the exact same way..its fucking with me. His family needs outside help...and I believe its coming.
The facts do not add up to an educated conclusion. the parameters of this disappearance do not fit a logic scope due to the hi misleading article by McCutcheon (who seemed to have Not interviewed ANYONE!), sherrif's office, sheriff's office withholding information and provding disinformation, and highly suspicious search practices. Contact David Paulides at www.canammissing.com to find out IF this falls into his Missing 411 parameters.
I think regardless of what was said on the 911 call, the fact is Brandon was clearly requesting assistance and the next day went missing and subsequently never seen again. To say that he isn't in a specific area and to call it quits is disgusting. Who cares if the man had some minor drug offences or a warrant. He is a father and husband that is no more as far as we can tell. If his cell phone was still registering the day after 3 miles away, then there is your "new evidence" to start another search. If the TexSAR costed $25000 to do the initial search. I think any community, local or internet can come up with that quick, provided that they receive their "authority approval". Roughing up some non-used Texas land is the least of the landowners concerns I'm sure.Now to the phone call. I would like to put my two cents in. I am not going to give my transcript on it but what I think is the general message Brandon is transmitting.He says basically I ran out of gas going towards Albiline, I am in a field off on the WEST side (This seems to be a part where everyone seems to be stumped on what is said). Some guys ran me off the road. I got away from the first guy but cannot see the second guy. This is where it has cut off. I do think it is possible that there are very distant gun shots being heard near the end of the phone call when the operator asks if hes hurt. At this point I think Brandon is just full on running.I only wish that Kyle's girlfriend had more information from the phone call she received as this was last contact from Brandon. If she says she heard him say "I'm bleeding" and the phone is away from the truck, then start looking more. HR Dogs are the best bet for this since it has been so long.-Kyle from Canada.I will definitely be following up on this. Bless you all.
I just typed a two pager, just testing to see if this goes through cause it appears my first did not.

Have you ever heard of a man who went missing from Little Rock Arkansas named John Glasgow? I am really big into missing person cases and honestly Brandon's and a kid named Timmothy Pitzen are the two I'm most intrigued by. Anyway, John Glasgow left his home early one morning and told no one where he was going. When he missed work and never returned home he was reported missing. They triangulated his phone and saw the last place it was on was a state park called Petit Jean.. They located his SUV there parked and unlocked. They conducted a 3 day search using dogs and hundreds of volunteers. They never did find him. A search and rescue professional even said some 5 years later he was very confident that he was not on Petit Jean mountain because he would have been found by now. A state park that has thousands of visitors a year, someone would have found some sign of him. Well 7 years later 2 hikers found his skull. They searched the area better and found his wallet and most of his remains.. My point being this, I'm very confident that Brandon is out there still. Whatever fate he met is unknown but I strongly feel he lost his life that night and his body is still within 10 miles of where his truck was left..
I'm glad you brought up John Glasgow. My brother and I both live in Little Rock and we have followed this case from the beginning, and we have both resolved it in our minds with both of us having a different ending. He thinks John Glasgow was murdered. I think John Glasgow committed suicide. But one of the reasons I think he was not found is because his body was on a ledge sort of thing and had been concealed with leaves and branches. If his skull had not fallen off that ledge and two off trail hikers had not seen the skull this case would have been a mystery for a very long time. He was just off of the trail to the waterfall. My brother and I are going to go there sometime soon and see if we can leave the trail and get where John's body was found. I think that's exactly what he did - climbed onto that ledge and covered himself with branches and slit his throat or wrists with a razor blade. He could have thumped that razor blade far far away from himself before dying.Another disappearance that is driving me crazy is that of Steven Koecher.
In the 911 clip One word. What is it? Staper? Stapler? Scaper? Escaper? Taper? Possibly.... "Yes, I'm in the middle of a field, "A staper just perched (pushed) some guys over")I believe he said "A trooper just pulled some guys over" I know it doesnt sound like trooper but if he was scared he may have mumbled his words slightly.
I think he said , "staplice" a rapid out of breath Texas drawl version of "state police". If you really listen I believe you will hear it too.
Peace and blessing for Brandon; and may he be found soon and also for his family. I cannot imagine the sorrow that they live with.
I have wrote.. re wrote erased.. cried. I dont know what to say.I am sending my love to you all. I first heard this story on a podcast, then on another. Im glad more people are becoming aware of this. In a back country place (I live in Vermont) the police do not have to follow what other police/ sheriff offices do because 1. not enough staff to cover the amount of space.2 they are all basically related by blood or marriage, grew up best buddies 3. no one is watching them we dont really have street lights cameras no body cameras.. no proof of anything but their word. Its VERY one sided and scary. Makes my heart break 10x more for this family. We here keep you all in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.
Sending love and prayers. I am heartbroken at hearing Brandon and his family's story... he is not forgotten and hopefully there will be answers soon.
I have just learned about Brandon's case yesterday, after listening to a podcast. Since then, I've listened to several other podcasts about the case and can't stop thinking about it. I can only imagine the sadness and frustration that you feel, especially with what appears to be a lack of help and concern from authorities. To Brandon's family, is there anything at all that I can do to help? If so, please contact me. Best wishes.
A good look into the FLDS in the area might prove useful. They are secretive and can be brutal to those they feel have compromised their agenda. Prayers for all of you!
Some guys did not run him off the road. He ran out of gas and pulled over, but he didn't get the left rear of his truck out of the lane. He called his partner and his brother and informed them he was out of gas and needed help. Where Brandin made his mistake was leaving his truck behind and walking north. You don't do this when you have been assured by your very close brother that he is on the way. If my brother told me he is on the way with gas I would lock the truck with me in it and grab a nap until my brother arrived.All Brandon needed to do was stay where he was. A truck driver called 911 and reported that there was a deserted truck creating a safety hazard because the left rear end was sticking out into the lane and police responded to that 911 call, but no Brandon.Kyle and girlfriend arrived to help just as LE drove up at the truck.
I hope he is found soon, so his family can be in peace. Prayers from Arlington, TX
Following the case from Iowa. I hope you get answers soon. My heart goes out to all of the family and friends and others involved. Sends my best thoughts your way~
Still hoping for an outcome! Prayers from Macon, GA!
Hoping Brandon gets found alive so he can explain the call
Prayers from Colorado!
Praying from North Carolina
I’ve followed this case since the beginning. I’m sad to see no updates. Continued prayers.
Katie, I'm pleased to tell you that more updates will be coming in March . Continue your prayers , they mean a lot to Ladessa and the Family.
Ladessa, my phone is freaking out. I have to wait until the 2nd to get it fixed.Let Jason Know.
There is a tv show called Cold Case with 2 former female prosecutors who investigate this sort of thing. The family should attempt to contact them. Also, have you contacted the Department of Justice & sought out their help? There is definitely a cover up going on with this case involving law enforcement. Has anyone purchased the hunting license & "gone hunting"? How about reaching out to a pro bono lawyer to understand the law better to see what (if anything) the courts can do to intervene & override the the local enforcement's bullshit. Aren't they violating his constitutional or civil rights by ignoring to protect & serve. What about those drones?
I have been to an audiologist & have been told that I have hypersensitivity in my ears. Over active hearing. I hear this, "Yes, I'm in the middle field, a sniper just pulled some guys over. (State trooper slang is sniper, the "some guys' mean plural==more than one--the guys who got pulled over by the state troopers) "Right here going towards abilene on Bronte sides". "My truck ran outta gas". "There's one car here". ( one state trooper car). "____ chasing thru the woods. (the state troopers are chasing guy #1 thru the woods). "Please hurry". "And one I'm talking to him", (he is talking with guy #2 who got pulled over--they are together). "I totally ran into em" (He ran into guy #2 who was running from the state troopers), "Shot the 1st guy". When the operator (who was working out of a senior citizens home) asks him if he needs an ambulance the guy# 1 says, "yeah", the Brandon says, "no I need the cops". I have read online that people speculate he says at the end "help me" as he's dieng. I heard no such thing. He called his brother 10 minutes after his 911 call. It was pitch black on that road & one of the guys who got pulled over who was running in a panic crossed paths with him. State troopers shot all 3 of them & buried them on the man's private land. He was probably threatened & was told to never allow anyone to search his land. And the small time Bronte sherrif & deputies were told to uphold the code of silence. Brandon was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I wish one those tv shows would investigate & uncover it all. Prayers to the family.
It was probably 2 white racist state troopers who pulled over 2 black guys & decided to execute them & then Brandon saw too much. Is Bronte a whit supremacy town?
Too much speculation on race that only shows your own feelings. That isn't needed on this page.
Yes, Bronte Texas is 90.06% white so its got to be a problem if 2 black guys are passing through this little town on dark deserted road. Racism is where this all probly stems from. What a shame.
Dear Family of Brandon, I wanted to stop by and send our deepest sympathy from WA state. Ive followed Brandon's case for a few years now and happened upon Head Scratch YouTube video today. Great coverage. I cannot imagine the family not knowing what happened. I pray for answers for Brandon's family & friends. My heart breaks each time I hear his story. Sending thoughts & prayers! Darla & David
I hope someone searches the area again with the thought that he could have been killed by animals. Sounded like maybe boars from hearing the call. But that or coyotes doesn't seem like a stretch. Searching for scattered bones or individual bones that will most likely be under dirt or foliage since it has been so long. The simpler answer is usually the right one. All this talk of snipers and rogue state troopers just seem a bit fantastical.
Has Chris been interviewed?
