http://www.tx dps.s tate.tx.us/mpch/mp ch.htm Brandon Lawson has been missing since August 9 at around 1:00 a.m. Missing persons report was made on the 12th. Lawson disappeared from a field off highway 277, and no foul play is suspected Concerns grow as theories develop: is Lawson dead, missing or on-the-run from an outstanding warrant? Lawson was last seen leaving his residence following a fight with Lofton between 11:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. on August 9. Family members assume he was heading to Fort Worth, citing a lack of family and friends in the San Angelo area. Nearing Bronte on highway 277, Brandon reportedly dialed 911 at 12:50 a.m. because he had had an apparent accident and had run out of gas, however the phone call was hardly intelligible. Deputies responded to the call and arrived on the scene where Lawson’s truck stood abandoned. At the same time, Kyle Lawson, Brandon’s brother, appeared with a gas can and filled his brother’s truck. According to Lori Norris, Brandon Lawson and Ladessa Lofton’s neighbor, the Sheriffs Deputies asked Kyle Lawson if he was the one who had made the call, and Kyle stated that the vehicle was his brother’s and that he must have stepped away. Kyle Lawson would gas it up and his brother would return to retrieve it. After this, the Deputies left the scene. This part of the story has been confirmed by Coke County Sheriff Wayne McCutchen, Lawson’s girlfriend Ladessa Lofton, and Lori Norris. What happened thereafter, however is where the story gets murky. When Deputies were on the scene, no mention was made concerning the potential whereabouts of Brandon Lawson. It wasn't until two to three days later that Kyle Lawson came forward and admitted to the Sheriff that his girlfriend had been on the phone with Brandon while Kyle was talking to the Deputies, Sheriff McCutchen said. According to Norris, who has been assisting in the search for Lawson since his disappearance six weeks ago,“Kyle went down the road and waited for the Sheriff Deputies to leave, and went back and was calling out to Brandon.” Lofton added that Kyle had driven up and down the highway looking for Brandon until 4:30 a.m., and claimed that a few of his co-workers had assisted in the search, however was unable to say whether or not anyone stepped out of the vehicle to search in the brush where Brandon had reported he was hiding. Brandon is said to have been ‘hiding in the bushes because he was scared,’ and, according to his brother’s girlfriend, his last words were ‘I’m bleeding, I’m bleeding.’ Shortly thereafter, the cell phone cut out and contact was lost.“That’s the last anyone’s seen or heard from Brandon,” Norris said. No one seems to know why Brandon Lawson was hiding out in the bushes, however an outstanding warrant from 2005 out of Johnson County has aroused suspicion in the authorities and in Bronte residents. Lawson's truck revealed no damage whatsoever upon inspection, and who or what Lawson claimed to have hit in his 911 call has remained a mystery. While there are many theories surrounding Lawson's disappearance, the most sobering comes from his girlfriend, Ladessa Lofton.“I think he’s out in that field,” said Lofton.“There are wild hogs, there are wild snakes, you know, there all kinds of things out there that can do stuff to you, and coyotes…There’s so many ditches, so many wells, so many stuff that you can fall in, you know? Since his disappearance, Sheriff McCutchen has received three or four anonymous calls proclaiming to know the whereabouts of Lawson, and these vary from San Angelo to Fort Worth and in between. The Sheriff Deputies have been keeping a look out when they make routine patrols, however up until now, no further information or evidence has surfaced.

Brandon’s not alive, wherever he is. Brandon’s not alive. He’s dead somewhere, I know it,” came the haunted words of a woman who presumes herself a widow through the telephone receiver.“Brandon would never do this to his family,” she said of the father of her three children,‘others would, but not him’. http://sanangeloli ve.com/news/2013-0 9-24/miss ... Why assume he is dead right from the get go? Why no hope that he is alive? Is it better to be dead, than maybe alive somewhere? So many questions, no answers, no Brandon Lawson. At this rate, I doubt he will be found. When people we are supposed to be their near and dear, assume he is dead from the very beginning....Then who has hope of ever finding him? I will tell you who, strangers who think he deserves to be found and the truth exposed and justice served! We are here to stay until that GOOD man; Brandon Lawson is found!! Where is Brandon???
