Brandon and his mother, Paula Wade, were last seen at their residence on October 14, 2002.  They were reported missing when Paula failed to show up for work at Sam’s Club and failed to call to tell them she would not be in.  One of Paula’s coworkers went to her residence twice, looking for Paula and Brandon, however found no sign of either.  Paula’s vehicle, a 1998 Chevrolet Blazer, was still parked at the residence, however Brandon’s car seat had been removed.

Paula’s husband, a soldier who was stationed at the Shaw Air Force Base at the time of his family’s disappearance, has been ruled out as a suspect in Paula and Brandon’s disappearance.  He voluntarily took a polygraph exam and passed.  Paula and he were separated at the time of Paul and Brandon’s disappearance.  He has since moved out of state and remarried.

Paula’s roommate has been rather uncooperative with authorities investigating the case.  He was asked to take a polygraph exam, but refused and then quickly hired a lawyer.  An acquaintance of the roommate’s told police where he thought Paula and Brandon’s remains might be.  When the location was searched, the only remains found were those of a deer.

Paula and Brandon’s family say it would be extremely uncharacteristic of Paula to take Brandon and leave without warning, or to miss work without notice.  Her parents maintained weekly phone contact with their daughter.  Paula had been approved for a transfer to a Sam’s Club job in Kissimmee, Florida, and her family was supposed to be helping her prepare to move during the week that she and Brandon disappeared.

Although many years have passed since Paula and Brandon went missing, law enforcement has not given up on the hope of bringing Paula and Brandon home.  They continue to work the case and chase down any leads that they receive.  Regis McGrath, Paula’s father, applauds the work law enforcement have and are doing, stating that it has been a plus working closely with Captain McGraw.  McGrath went on to further state that he and his family know that everything that can be done, is being done.  “We have never felt as though the department is giving up on Paula and Brandon.”  The family also credits the many agencies and organizations which have helped them in their time of need, groups such as, The National Center For Missing And Exploited Childre, The Polly Klass Foundation, The FBI, and numerous local community groups and churches.  They also thanked various media outlets for the coverage of Paula and Brandon’s disappearance.

Paula and Brandon’s entire family recalls the time they spent with these two incredible people.  Brandon loved going to Disney World.  At the time of his disappearance, his favorite character was Woody from Toy Story.  Paula is described as a very kind and loving person who was completely devoted to her son.  Paula is a family minded person.  She devoted everything she has to her family, and they in turn do the same.  It is clear that the disappearances of Paula and Brandon have shocked this family to the care, yet they will never stop looking until Paul and Brandon are brought home.  They are motivated by love and hope, and with those two things, you know that they will never stop.  It has been a decade since Paula and Brandon disappeared, and still the family and law enforcement search for answers.  The family and law enforcement are still in contact, speaking at least twice a month to update each other.

Authorities have disclosed that they do have a person of interest in the case.  They would only state that the person of interest is a male living in the South Georgia region, and authorities have been in contact with him.

Both Brandon and Paul are considered to be endangered.
