  • Details of Disappearance
    Brandy was last seen on November 2, 2007. Her 1991 blue Toyota Tercel was found abandoned on Delmoe Lake Road on Homestake Pass.

    Search and rescue volunteers spoke with a group of hunters and with another man who regularly walks his dog around there, and both parties said they noticed the car had been parked in a few different places over the 10 or so days it was up there. The car appeared to be undamaged and some female clothes were found in the backseat.
    At the end of October, a judge issued a temporary restraining order against Brandy's live-in boyfriend, Richard Penhaligen, who was order to stay at least 1,500 feet away from Christiansen, her home, her car, and Montana Tech where she is a student. He also ordered Christianson to vacate the home on Quartz Street, which she shared with Penhaligen. She was to be out of the house by the 8th of November. Penhaligen was being restrained because the Court felt Christiansen was in danger of immediate harm.
