Home » Brittany Palmer, 23: Vanished After Visiting Friend’s Mother In 2020
*UPDATE* Sadly, this month, the remains of Brittany Palmer were identified. According to reports, Brittany’s remains were actually located back in October 2020 but were only matched this year. You can read more about that here.
Just over six years ago, Brittany Palmer was involved in a car accident. She suffered a traumatic brain injury and as a result, Brittany walked with a limp and used either a cane or walker. The injury did not stop Brittany from continuing to live as normal of a life as possible, but in August 2020, the unthinkable occurred. It was on August 22 that the 23-year-old was reportedly at her friend’s mother’s home in her hometown of Jacksonville, Florida, but somewhere during her travels, Brittany disappeared.
“When I spoke with her that day, I already knew what was wrong with her,” said Vontria Mobley, Brittany’s mother. “It was about an incident about money that she received and someone took it. I told her to call me back and momma will resolve it, just call me back.” She never spoke with her daughter again.
A day later at 3:00 a.m., Vontria received a phone call from Brittany’s phone. When she called it back, it wasn’t her daughter who picked up—a strange woman answered and told the concerned mother that she purchased the phone from someone.
Vontria told reporters that he daughter got herself caught up in the wrong crowd who may have been targeting Brittany over her money. Brittany’s twin sister Brianna described her as person who gave people who did her wrong too many second chances. Brittany Palmer reportedly had a rift with friends who she believed stole money from her, but details about the accusations have not been explained in reports and it is unclear if authorities believe the information is somehow connected to her case.
“She was always the type to give people the benefit of the doubt, and I know she was still angry about her money,” Brianna said. She was asked if she trusted people easily. “Yes. I think she was too trusting.”
“If you have Brittany, just let her go,” said Vontria. “Let her make a phone call. She knows my number. Drop her off at a hospital, something, just let her go.”
She suffers from a brain injury and walks with a walker or cane.
