WALA - Mobile, AL






MOBILE, Ala. (ALA) - Saturday, friends and family members of missing teen Brittney Wood took to the streets of Mobile to raise money for a reward in order to bring her back.

It's been 38 days since Wood, 19, went missing from her home in Tillman's Corner.

Wood's father, Wallace Hanke, has been searching every day on his own for his daughter. He says nothing has turned up yet.

"We're following all kind of leads but nothing has panned out," Hanke said Saturday.

He feels that Mobile Police aren’t giving his daughter's case enough gravity.

I am trying to understand this case so far from the new articles. She was last seen May 30, she was gone to her uncle house. Someone see her on a swing that day, it is reported that her uncle did pick her up (I think by facebook page) but he doesn't show up at his house until Friday and shots himself.
Was the uncle home between Wednesday and Friday?
Was he married and could his wife put her at the home with uncle?
This is really a strange case, I don't believe she is just a adult missing, I have a bad feeling something happen to this young lady.

When I read the news that Brittney's other uncle(s) were arrested for rape it took this case in very bad direction. It seems these two incidents have just got tobe related somehow. The 1 Uncle is the LAST Family member to see her...and he shoots himself??? Out of Guilt I'm thinking.

I hope Brittney is off with friends somewhere but everyday that goes by doesn't bode well.

It almost sounds like some kind of sex ring going on because after the uncle(s) arrested they said there would be more. He phone pinging at a truck stop doesn't make me believe it was her anybody could have her phone.

You're not the only one trying to understand this case. The girl seen on the swing has been discredited.

Brittney's uncle Donnie was married to her aunt Wendy. A sister of Brittney's mom Chessie. Uncle Donnie was under a 4 month investigation for sexual abuse before Brittney's disappearance. It appears uncle Donnie's living arrangements were complicated as he was allegedly ordered to live away from his children. The time of uncle Donnie's suicide has not been detailed. He was found in his car in Fairhope, where he was still alive. He died days later. Aunt Wendy, from her once public Facebook, has made several inconsistencies of their whereabouts during these days. She stated Donnie did not pickup Brittney and now we know differently from phone records. Aunt Wendy allegedly made illegal attempts to get information from Brittney's phone. Wendy has a twin sister Mendy. Approximately 20 days after Brittney disappeared, Mendy's husband Dustin Kent and their biological brother Randall Wood were arrested on multiple sexual assaults of a minor.

What is known-

05/30/12 - 7:30pm - Chessie Wood's Home - Brittney leaves on foot. She tells her mom she is going to a friends. Brittney tells her friend that she is going to her uncle Donnie's.

05/30/12 - Time unknown - Uncle Donnie picks Brittney up in Mobile.

05/31/12 - 12:07am - Styx River/Wilcox - Allegedly Brittney's cell phone was used to send a text message. Uncle Donnie's cell phone pinged off this tower during the same time.

05/31/12 - 1:47am - Grand Bay Truck Stop - Allegedly this is believed to be the last activity from Brittney's cell and was used to send a text message to a friend who was interviewed by LE. This person was allegedly high at the time and cannot recall the evening.

06/01/12 - Time unknown - Uncle Donnie Holland attempts suicide in Fairhope.

06/02/12 - Time unknown - Brittney Wood is reported missing by her mother Chessie Wood.

06/19/12 - 10:45 PM - Baldwin Co LE - Dustin Alton Kent, Age 36, Arrested for Sodomy 1st degree & Rape 2nd degree, Released on $10K bond

06/19/12 - 11:40pm - Baldwin Co LE - Randall Scott Wood, Age 42, Arrested for Sexual Abuse 2nd degree, Sodomy 2nd degree & Incest, Remains in jail $150K bond

You are welcome. I personally believe Brittney met with foul play.

Brittney has caring parents searching for her daily. She has a 2 year old daughter who is missing her mom. It appears Brittney hasn't always made the best choices. She allegedly had been using meth. The family says Brittney has never been gone for more than 2 days and to not contact her family is very unusual. In my opinion the timing of the sexual charges and suicide are hard to separate from Brittney's disappearance. The inconsistent stories from the extended family only create more suspicion. I personally don't understand why LE is not doing more. The charges were detailed by deputies as "horrific". After the arrests officials said they believe "this is just the tip of the iceberg" and "expect to make more arrests". In my opinion some very strong wording used by LE with no follow up to date. At this point I hope maybe behind the scenes more is being done.

The last alleged phone activity being at a truck stop leaves open many possibilities. Brittney allegedly was close to her uncle Donnie. Brittney's mom Chessie was aware Donnie was under investigation. Hence the reason Brittney did not tell her mom where she was going that evening. If Brittney knew about her 3 uncles, maybe she assumed she would have to testify or talk to LE? I can understand if Brittney was scared and wanted to runaway from all the dysfunction. However, was Brittney even there or just or cell phone? If she did runaway, why not contact someone, like her mom or 2 year old daughter?

I have been reading but not really following this case that closely. Who are all these men assaulting? Incest, sodomy,rape? Did all the uncles, bros assault Brittney and kill her to keep it quiet? Sorry, I am confused and should have been paying closer attention.

This is becoming more and more disturbing. This is her brother who was in jail when she went missing. IIRC, I believe he was in on a drug charge. He has the same biological parents as Brittney. When released from jail he searched for Brittney and spoke out in the attached article with video.


Search Ends - Still No Sign of Brittney Wood | published: 6/14/2012

Snip- "I love you more than anything. Please come home." Brittney disappeared while Derek Wood was in Mobile Metro Jail. He was released last night. He believes if Brittney is watching she will reach out to him. "I want her to call my cell phone. 382-0362 I love you and miss you. Please call me."

"Him and his sister are only 16 months apart so they have the same friends, run the same places they are like this," says Chessie. "He is Brittney's protector and he feels like he wasn't there when he should have been."

"I'll protect her from anything. That's why I want her to call me. She knows that I'll keep her safe."

Derek describes searching for his sister as "painful". He believes something scared Brittney so badly that she is hiding and afraid. He and everyone hopes she will make that phone call.

At this point, no information about the victim(s) is being released. The two uncles are charged with crimes against a minor. I am unsure of the most recent charges against Brittney's brother Derek. Interesting to note, both uncles were to appear in court this week. Uncle Dustin Kent was to appear on Thursday and uncle Randall Wood was scheduled to appear on Friday.

ETA - Second degree means the victim is between 11 and 14. The victim in the charges against the brother is or was also a minor.

This case gets more incredible.
Was BW ever a victim if these male family members???

Is her phone still pinging?

Is it at all likely, in light of her child, that she would remain hidden without any contact or leakage?

Is it likely for her to have those type of fears of which her family or friends would be ignorant?

Is her brother protecting someone by making a statement that implies the opposite of her having met with foul play?

Im sure he has been questioned a great deal prior but hopefully some additional information, even if tangential, will be gathered through his current apprehension.

Hi Lash,

Grand Bay, AL is astonishingly close to I 10!

And a great deal of water...... Sad

as is this:

"That`s where she reportedly met her uncle, but her uncle then returned to his home in Fair Hope, and then he committed suicide. "

Incredibly disgusting!

Wood arrested in ongoing sex crimes investigation
Updated: Sunday, 15 Jul 2012, 4:48 PM CDT
Published : Sunday, 15 Jul 2012, 4:48 PM CDT

FOLEY, Ala. (WALA) - The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office released new details Sunday about the arrest of Derek Wood, the brother 19-year-old Brittney Wood, a missing area teen.

Anthony Lowery, with the Baldwin County Sheriff's office said 21-year-old Derek Wood was arrested on rape, sodomy and incest charges as part of an ongoing investigation that began before Wood's disappearance on May 30.

Two other family members are also facing similar charges from the same investigation. Randall Scott Wood and Dustin Alton Kent face sex crimes charges involving a female juvenile victim.

Randall Wood and Kent were both arrested in June.

Lowery said Derek Wood was latest arrest in the case, and expects at least one or two more to follow.

Lowery said there are multiple victims under the age of 16 involved in the case, but that Brittney Wood was not a victim in that investigation.

Brittney's father William Hanke is posting comments on FOX10News Facebook regarding the recent arrest and Brittney's disappearance. William Hanke and Chessie Wood are the biological parents of brother Derek Wood. Brittney's parents have been separated for many years. For whatever reason the children were given Chessie's last name Wood.

BCSO: No proof Wood, sex abuse arrests connected

Updated: Tuesday, 17 Jul 2012, 3:31 PM CDT
Published : Monday, 16 Jul 2012, 8:59 PM CDT

Snip - “We're definitely focused on finding her one way or another,” said Brittney’s stepmother Stephanie Hanke, who spoke to FOX10 with Brittney’s father. “The not knowing is what is killing us.”

Relatives said the teen was last seen heading to visit her uncle, Donald Holland, in the Styx River area.

He was later found dead, due to an apparent suicide.

“We don't know if what happened to Brittney went to the grave with him,” said Hanke.

In the weeks that followed, two of Brittney’s uncles and most recently her own brother, Derek, were arrested and charged with sex crimes, including incest.

Baldwin County deputies maintain Brittney’s disappearance and the sex abuse cases are not related.

“She is not a victim in our sex abuse case, and our case has been going on much longer than the missing person's report that was filed with Mobile Police Department on Brittney wood,” said BCSO Major Anthony Lowery.

Some of Wood's family, however, said they need more than that.

“That’s not a good enough reason for us,” said Hanke. “They cannot explain to us, to convince us that it has nothing to do with it. They have yet to convince us.”

Well all of these sick "effs" had to be abusing a family member/members for it to be incest... Who out of them has daughters that fit the age group? Could the daughters of told Brittney what happened and she went with her uncle to discuss whether she'd testify against the pervy gang and he got rid of her and killed himself because they were so close?

There's NO STINKIN' POSSIBLE WAY all these family members are charged with rape and incest and it has nothing to do with Brittney's disappearance. No way at all. I wonder if one or more of them abused Brittney's daughter, and she went to confront the heck out of 'em, and that may have led to what happened to her. Oh, Lord knows I hope that's not what happened, because that would mean the baby's been hurt, too, but it's a glaring possibility.

Wood's mom: Recent arrests overshadow search for Brittney
Updated: Wednesday, 18 Jul 2012, 10:24 PM CDT
Published : Wednesday, 18 Jul 2012, 4:46 PM CDT | Andrew Perez

Snip- “I believe something's wrong,” said Chessie Wood.  “My gut has told me that from day one. I do not believe my daughter would leave her child and her family behind period.”

Wood said she was shocked to learn of the sex arrests, which include her son and Brittney’s brother, 21-year-old Derek Wood.

“We're trying not to let it distract us off our focus period because Brittney is our number one goal here, but yes as a human being, yes it's a little distracting,” she said.

Chessie believes the sex abuse case is not related to her missing daughter. However, she says she believes the suicide of Donald Holland may have something to do with it.

“He picked her up at the end of my street,” said Wood. “They did go to Styx River. We know this by telephone pings. Later, her phone pings back in grand bay, once.”

FOX10 News has learned Holland was also a suspect in the family sex abuse case that had been ongoing for several months.

Authorities said two days after Wood vanished, Holland shot himself near his home in Marlow.

It must be related to the sex-case, and I agree that Brittney may have had knowledge or suspicions and that might have scared someone into hurting her.
I can't shake the feeling the Uncle killed himself out of GUILT.
Wow, imagine what the remaing Family is going through,what a nightmare!

I agree glazier... I read that Brittney and the suicide uncle were very close that's why she had to lie to her mom to see him, the mom knew he was under investigation... If they were that close I could see that he killed himself out of guilt because he felt he needed to kill her to keep her quiet...

Family members feel arrests are related to missing teen
Updated: Friday, 20 Jul 2012 | Published: Wednesday, 18 Jul 2012 | Renee Dials

Snip- Kim Aikin says the family is clinging to hope that 19-year-old Brittney Wood is alive and will be found and that the reward will encourage someone to come forward with information to help find her.

Aikin, who is the sister of Brittney's father, says her family has been following the sex crimes investigation in Baldwin County.

"It just seems to go on and on and get deeper and deeper," Aikin said.

Baldwin County Sheriff's investigators say their sex abuse investigation is not linked to Brittney's disappearance.

Some family members don't believe that.

"Personally, I think it's a good possibility.  More things come out about Donnie Holland since he's committed suicide," Aikin said.

Donald Holland committed suicide two days after Wood disappeared on May 30.

"I know that I've heard he was supposed to be arrested the day that he shot his self," Aikin said.

From the article above, even more details-

Snip- A source close to the investigation said Holland was a suspect in that same family sex abuse case and was expected to meet with authorities June 1, about half an hour after he shot himself.

Relatives said they are back to square one and hope a $1,500 reward will lead to more information about the case.

“I mean, I just want an answer. That’s all I want. I want to bring her home whether it be tragically or a happy ending,” said Wood.

Brittney’s relatives told deputies that the teen normally only had two bullets in her gun. FOX10 confirmed the weapon did have just one bullet left, after Holland shot himself..

I feel so bad for any family who just doesn't know what happened to their loved one. It's gotta be just awful not knowing.

Search for Brittney Wood continues

MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - The search for missing teen mom Brittney Wood continues.

Monday morning, FOX10 News spoke to Brad Dennis with KLAASKids Foundation , a non profit organization dedicated to finding missing children.

Dennis said the recent arrest of five people, including Wood’s family members, for sex crimes has raised questions but not halted the search.

“The challenge that we face is trying to determine what took place that night and where,” said Dennis. “We all still believe someone knows something that took place that evening of May 30 or the 31. We believe there are still people out there that saw Brittany during that time frame. We need them to come forward.”

Brittney Wood family wants investigation

Family wants a criminal investigation

MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Brittney Wood's mother said she wants her daughters missing persons case upgraded to a criminal investigation.

Chessie Wood believes there is foul play suspected in her daughter's case, and she wants authorities to acknowledge it.

"I believe her being listed as a missing person does knock her down on the priority level," said Wood.

Mobile police said they follow leads and keep in contact with Wood's family. But right now, she is considered a missing person. There isn't a criminal investigation involving the missing teen.

"All indications are... is that she is out there somewhere just not coming forward," said the Mobile Police Department Spokesman Chris Levy.

Sex Crimes Connected to Wood's Disappearance
Published: 7/23 10:58 PM | Updated: 7/23 10:59 PM | Reported by: Frank Morales

(MOBILE, Ala.) - The stepmother of a missing Mobile teen said Monday that recent sex abuse arrests in Baldwin County are connected to her stepdaughter's disappearance.

19-year-old Brittney Wood was last seen May 30th, and since then four of her relatives, and a family-friend, have been charged with child sex crimes. Investigators are not releasing many details about the case, other than that Wood is not involved in these cases.

Stephanie Hanke, the stepmother of Brittney Wood, told Local 15 News those cases, as well as the suicide of Wood's uncle, are all connected.

Hanke said she wants the missing persons case to become a criminal investigation.

"Your looking at three cases and all these arrests, and they all seem to intertwine around Brittney," Hanke said, "But everybody says there's no connection. But if there's no connection, where's Brittney? Bring us Brittney."

Hanke said, so far, the family has been frustrated with the efforts of law enforcement in locating Wood, and she, herself, is losing hope.

"We're at 55 days today," Hanke said. "She would have reached out to somebody."

Wood's mother feels Brittney was abused: fox10tv.com



~Snipped~

Chessie Wood believes her daughter Brittney knew arrests were coming in a sex crimes investigation before she disappeared.

She also believes her daughter was sexually abused by her now-dead uncle, Donald Holland, Sr.

"I was told by authorities that Brittney was one of his victims," said Chessie Wood.

She said she feels she is still being victimized by her uncle because he was the last person to have seen her. A source told FOX10 Holland was a suspect in a sex crimes ring but, before he could be questioned, he killed himself.

I do not say this as a litigious person...

but there is a place for litigation, and this is the place. These molesters should have been arrested before they had the time to harm any witness.

The victim(s) in th(i)(e)s(e) child molestation case(s) were horribly let down.

This seems to be becoming a theme in this country Sad

Brittney Wood: Questions keep piling up in case of missing teen

Michael Dumas, Press-Register
Updated: Sunday, July 29, 2012, 10:15 AM

MOBILE, Alabama -- Where is Brittney?

For 61 days, investigators, family members and friends have stared at silent cell phones, empty bedrooms and an inactive Facebook page as they await word of the whereabouts of Brittney Wood.

The 19-year-old mother of a 2-year-old daughter left her own mother’s house in Theodore where she was staying around 7 p.m. on May 30 and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

According to family members, it wasn’t unusual for the thin brunette with a pierced lip to occasionally be gone for as many as three days at a time, so it wasn’t until the first week of June when they realized that something might be terribly amiss.

@ J4A - I was just about to make the same post. There is quite a bit of information in this article. This is the first to detail what vehicle uncle Donnie was in when he shot himself. I don't know if it has any significant value, but there has been inconsistencies surrounding what vehicle uncle Donnie used to pickup Brittney from Tillman's Corner on May 30th.

Snip - But investigators were never able to question Holland about the missing Brittney. On June 1, he drove his black SUV to a secluded clearing overlooking Fish River in the Marlow community of south Baldwin and shot himself in the head.
