Many people go missing in a day, although you might not realize it because you are not aware of your surroundings. How many people actually go missing in a day? In the United States every 40 seconds a child go missing, that makes about 800,000 children a year. This number of children missing is outrageous and we need to do something about it. This is the case of Brianna Maitland, a seventeen year old girl who went missing in 2004.

The day she turned seventeen she moved out because she wanted more independence and wanted to be closer to her friends, contrary to her parents wishes, she moved 15 miles away from home.

This theory suggests that Brianna was kidnapped by local drug dealers and killed. Brianna was reported to experiment with drugs such as marijuana and crack cocaine and was “friends” with drug dealers although, her parents were not aware of this just like most parents.

These two drug dealers are known as Ramon Ryans and Nathaniel Jackson. Upon receiving the tip, officers quickly responded and got a warrant to search their residence. Eventually no evidence of a kidnapping was found although officers did manage to find a substantial amount of drugs so both Ramon and Nathaniel were charged. It turns out that a few years later Ramon Reyes would be charged with a murder charge. To me this theory would make sense because maybe Brianna owed them a large amount of money or maybe she knew something that she could use against them. Either way Ramon ended up getting the justice that he
