Brown disappeared the day before a major tornado struck the area, killing 42 people. The shopping center Brown was planning to go to was in the path of the storm. Her cell phone records place her at Rosedale Apartments in the Rosedale Court area at 5:30 p.m. on the day of the tornado, and someone placed a call on her phone just minutes before the storm arrived.

After the tornado, 600 people were reported missing from the area; Brown is one of only four that remain unaccounted for.
