Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Brown was last seen March 26, 1987, placing her youngest daughter and the family's live-in baby sitter on a plane at LaGuardia Airport to join her other two children in Texas with Regina's parents. On her way back to Newtown, Brown made a phone call to her closest friend. Regina Brown was a Flight Attendant for American Airlines. She was separated from her husband at the time. A few hours after midnight March 27, a neighbor called police to report the Browns' dog was barking wildly in the house, but a dispatcher told the caller to contact the animal control officer the next day.
Regina's family, was later contacted by American Airlines because Regina had missed two flights she was assigned to work, and contacted a neighbour of Regina's who went to her house to check on her. The neighbour located the family's dog, abandoned in the garage. Regina's airline identification badge and scarf were on a closet shelf. An uncashed check for $1,000 was in her purse. Beneath the bathroom sink, the neighbour found the makeup bag Regina always carried. The neighbour reported Regina as missing a week after she was last seen.
Brown's car found with two child safety seats strapped in the back, parking tickets on the windshield, and keys in the ignition, on 104th Street in Manhattan in New York City on May 7, 1987. Newtown police searched the Browns' home, but found no sign of a struggle or other evidence that a crime had been committed. Foul play is suspected.
