Brandi Wells was last seen on August 3, 2006 in Longview, Texas at the Graham Central Station nightclub. Surveillance video shows that she entered the club at 10:30 pm, and left alone at 12:30 am.
Five days later her car, a black four-door Pontiac Grand Prix with an empty has tank, was found by law enforcement officials a couple miles down the road from the club, just outside Longview. The car was parked along the side of westbound I-20 at mile marker 591, about 300 yards west of FM Road 2087.
Her purse and wallet were located inside the car. There were no indications of a struggle, but the driver’s seat was reportedly pushed far back indicating that someone taller than Brandi had been driving.
Wells had a cell phone, and activity on the device led Longview police to briefly detain three men who claimed to have found her phone. Each of them were asked to take a polygraph. One of the men failed the polygraph, but after multiple interviews he has been ruled out as a possible suspect in her disappearance.
Three and a half years after her disappearance Brandi’s mother received a call from a man named “Tim” who claimed that Brandi was alive and living in Kansas City, Missouri. The call was disconnected before she could get more information.
At the time of her disappearance Brandi Wells had shoulder length blonde hair, blue eyes, was approximately 4’11 tall and weighed about 125 pounds. She was last seen wearing a floral print cream colored v-neck halter top, rust colored gaucho pants and black high heeled sandals.
