Shown below, BJ Brown, 34 and the cousin of Mississippi state senator Sean Tindell, went missing from a campground concert over the weekend.
“My cousin Brody 'BJ' Brown has been missing since last night," Senator Tindell posted on his Facebook page yesterday. "He was last seen about 9:30 at Muddy Joe’s in Hancock County. This picture was taken just beforehand. If you have seen, heard, or know anything please report it to authorities.”
Brown, a career offshore-man, was camping this weekend with his family at an RV park north of Kiln.
According to his missing persons report, he vanished en route to the restrooms while attending an outdoor concert there.
Both Sean Tindell and his missing cousin's wife say the 34-year-old family man's abrupt disappearance and continued lack of contact is highly out of character.
"It’s not like him at all to go somewhere without staying in touch," they informed reporters on Monday, noting that there was a final "ping" off Brown's cell phone which is still being investigated.
Dogs will be employed in today's search for BJ Brown and aerial searches are planned as well. In the meantime Senator Tindell says "people have been out on their four-wheelers" hoping to find the father-of-two still alive and safe.
Brody 'BJ' Brown is a full-bearded, athletic Caucasian adult male. Anyone who knows where he is or who has information about his sudden disappearance should contact the Hancock County Sheriff's Office at (228) 466-6900, or 911.
