  • Details of Disappearance
    Brigitte was last seen at a family member's residence the Regatta Apartments, in the vicinity of the 2100 block of Sandy Lane in Las Vegas, Nevada. She was known to stay with friends in the complex, and it wasn't unusual for her to be gone for days. She never really left the area around her home.
    Neighbors saw Thomas leave the complex in a blue truck with a pool company logo on the side, supposedly with a black man from Los Angeles and a Hispanic man from Mexico. One of the men from the truck came back to the neighborhood and vehemently denied everything.

    Thomas left behind six children, her mother and her grandmother. She hasn't been seen since. The family reported her missing on August 26, a week after she was last seen.

    She lived next door to convicted killer Nathan Burkett and her family believes he may have been involved in her disappearance. Police have not named Burkett a suspect.
