Bryan County man missing for one year

By  | 

DURANT, Okla. (KXII)- Jarred Brown was last seen in his north Durant home June 14, 2018, and family members are still left wondering where he could be, which includes his 10-year-old daughter

"He's got a 10-year-old little girl. She don't deserve to be going through this," said Jarred's cousin Shawn Perkins.

Perkins recalls the first time he met Jarred, when he was walking down the road by himself 12 years ago.

"He pulled over to give me a ride and after five minutes he said 'you've like you've been walking a little ways, you look like you're hungry,' he goes 'how about we grab you a bite to eat," said Perkins, holding back tears.

Bryan County Sheriff's investigator Jon Hammond says over the past year, he has conducted over 50 interviews with anyone that may have a lead on where Brown may be.

Hammond says the Sheriffs Office has received information that suggests Jarred's disappearance may be suspicious, but this is being investigated as a missing person case.

Perkins fears the worst.

"There's been so many different rumors that he's dead," said Perkins.

In January, Jarred's family and friends started a Facebook page where people can leave anonymous tips, and created a cash reward to help find him.

"We get a step closer just because of people that have messaged us," said Trista Nunez, Brown's niece.

Jarred stands 6 feet 3 inches tall, with brown hair and brown eyes, and tattoo sleeves on both arms.

His family just wants answers, for the sake of his daughter.

"I know she definitely missed him on her birthday, our reunion, her last day of school. It's hitting her hard. It really is," said Nunez.

"Somebody knows something and they need to come forward and at least let us get that much closure," said Perkins.
