    I just finished listening. This case could go many ways and it's really sad that the law enforcement agency around there is so small. I hope they are keeping all ideas open.

    My number one theory is that he ran into some bad hombres. Maybe they were part of the drug cartel or something along that line.

    My second biggest theory is again, people that get stranded with their automobiles seem to disappear so strangely. I don't know if they get disoriented or what?

    Five years gone: The disappearance of Brandon Lawson

    Every few months, Coke County’s six-person sheriff’s office receives a call from someone seeking information about Brandon Lawson. Every few months, they tell someone the case is dead.

    “We don’t have any leads,” Chief Deputy Brandon Neal explains. “We have nothing, nothing.”

    One working theory is Brandon Lawson's criminal past and rocky relationship pushed him to voluntarily disappear and start a new life.

    In addition to the warrant, those who have followed the case also point to the fact Brandon cashed in his 401K with Renegade Oil Services just before he went missing.

    His report is concluded with his opinion that “Brandon Lawson is not in Coke County, lost or hiding.”

    The opinion is based on Kyle’s revelation that Brandon was hiding in the brush near his pickup to avoid being discovered by Neal, not seeing any indication of foul play in or around the pickup and the text messages between Brandon and Lofton detailing the severity of their fight that night.

    His belief, he reported, is that after he and Kyle left the pickup, “Lawson walked back to the roadway and was able to get a ride from a passing motorist.”

    During calls before he went missing, Brandon said he was being chased and requested police during his 911 call. Some believe that is evidence someone killed Brandon after he left his pickup.

    Lofton said she knows Brandon initiated the process of cashing in his 401k, but she doesn’t know if he ever got the money. His last check was direct-deposited into his account that Friday and was never withdrawn, eventually going to the state to cover child support for his eldest daughter, Lofton said. 

    U.S. 277 cuts through desolate, drought-prone terrain spotted green with thorny mesquite, huisache and cactus. It's an environment largely inhabited by rattlesnakes and feral hogs.

    Texas Ranger Nick Hanna could not discuss Brandon’s case because it is an active investigation, but Lofton said Hanna told her he thinks Brandon’s body is somewhere out there in that land.

    Lofton is waiting to hear back from Texas Equusearch, a nonprofit search and recovery team that uses horses to cover large areas. She plans to use drones to fly over the area as well.
