Statement released concerning Thomas Brown disappearance: 'It is coming together - the case is solvable'

On Friday, lead investigator Philip R. Klein issued a statement concerning the progress his team has made concerning the disappearance of Canadian, Texas teen Thomas Brown.

"I would like to thank once again the citizens of Canadian Texas for all of their open arms and caring regarding this case. I would like to state that we, the investigators, do feel the citizens pain. We did have time to stop and enjoy the 4th of July Parade and meet some of you in Canadian.

"Thank you again for your nice comments - we do feel the town's pain and hurt over this case. We will announce today that we were VERY productive in the case.

"We did conduct flight operations that helped us in the time distance study being conducted - as well as the evidence search. We are now in the phase of obtaining sworn statements and piecing the puzzle together of the events of November 23 / 24 of 2016.

"It is coming together - the case is solvable. We again want all of you to remember to be careful of what you read on Facebook and rumors that run around town.

"There are only two groups that know the truth on this case - and we are one of them. There is a strong reason we do not say anything in depth in this case. When it is over you will understand why.

"I want all of you to know that this case is again moving forward. There are a few people that know what happened and it is up to them to let the real facts come out. They have all been interviewed - they have all been told that time is on the investigator's side and now is the time to come clean. We will see how God touches their hearts.

"Once again, thank you so very much to all of your comments and cooperation. And please pray for us and the OAG investigators. As well for Tom's parents and extended family. Pray always helps," Klein said.

Brown, 18 at the time of his disappearance, was last seen on Wednesday evening November 23, 2016, at 11:40 p.m. at a gas station inside the town of Canadian, Texas. He was wearing a black pull over with a Oklahoma State University logo displayed on the right upper chest area as well as jeans and tennis shoes.

Investigators  have possibly determined that Brown may have either been taken against his will or agreed to travel with another party and may possibly be in danger. Further investigators believe that Brown could have left on his own - however in the days since his disappearance he has made no effort to contact family, he has not used any money in any of his accounts, he has not used any of his social media accounts, credit cards or his cell phone or email. 

Brown's Red Dodge SUV was found on November 24, 2016 early in the morning by searchers in a remote section of the suburb area of Canadian, Texas. Upon inspect of the SUV it was determined that Tom's Wallet, Keys, Cell Phone and School Computer were missing. Video from a building in the area that the SUV was found shows it arrived in the remote area at 6:50 a.m. on November 24, 2016, however, the person driving could not be identified.

Investigators believe Brown was in the parking lot of the Canadian High School football field in the area of 12:03 a.m. This is a highly traveled area for students that attend Canadian High School.

Investigators need the public's help as we have no evidence regarding the possible location of Tom Brown and he again has not contacted or attempted to contact family and close friends.
