Brian Wehrle vanished without a trace during a trip to his hometown of Carrollton, Georgia. Everyone suspects foul play, but no one knows what could have happened to him. And nearly 14 years after his disappearance, his family is hoping someone out there has the information they need to bring Brian home.
For our friends in the Deaf and Signing community, you can view an ASL version of this episode HERE.
Brian is white, and at the time of his disappearance, he had blond hair, blue eyes, and weighed about 140 pounds. He’s 5’7… and if he’s alive today, he’s 52-years-old.
If you have any information about Brian’s disappearance – or know how his car ended up in Chattanooga, Tennessee in the fall of 2009 – please contact the Carrollton Police Department at 770-834-4451.
To help Brian’s family raise money for billboards, you can donate to their GoFundMe page, Find Brian Wehrle.
