Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Brandy was last seen by her husband, Kenny Wilson, on the morning of June 4, 2002, inside their residence in the 3800 block of west CR 600S in rural Colfax, Indiana.
Kenny had been working the night shift, so when he got home he went to sleep immediately. When he woke up at 2:00 p.m., Brandy was gone. $420 in cash was also Missing location (approx) : the home, but the couple's vehicles, their wedding rings, and Brandy's purse were all left behind at the residence.
A month after Brandy's disappearance, police announced that they had received a typed letter containing "legitimate leads" in her case. Investigators appealed for the writer to come forward. It is unknown whether the individual ever contacted them.
Authorities at first believed Brandy had simply left Kenny without telling him, but as time passed and she did not contact her employer, family, and friends, they began to believe foul play may have been involved in her disappearance. She left behind two sons, one of whom was an infant at the time she vanished.
The Wilsons were reportedly having marital problems at the time Brandy disappeared, so Kenny was given a polygraph by police. He had previously served ten years in prison in the 1980s for robbery with serious bodily injury; he had originally been charged with murder but the charge was reduced as part of a plea agreement.
Brandy's case remains unsolved. Foul play is suspected.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
