What happened to Summer Wells?
Summer Wells disappeared in July 2021. Last month, Don Wells issued a statement from the jail to commemorate the one-year anniversary of his daughter’s case. It was addressed to his daughter specifically.
Summer was helping her mother and grandmother plant flowers on the day she went missing. Following that, she allegedly entered the house where her brothers were playing. For several weeks, people searched for the missing girl on land, in the air, and on the water.
On June 26, authorities sought the driver of a red or maroon Toyota pickup truck with ladders in the back, which may have been in the area the night of Summer’s abduction. Nobody has ever been able to identify the driver.
Investigators also asked anyone with outbuildings or trail cameras to search the area for any signs of Summer’s presence. They have found no evidence of a kidnapping.
Summer Wells parents
Don Wells and Candus Bly had a daughter named Summer Wells.
Don Well is behind bars for violating the terms of his probation on unrelated charges unrelated to his daughter’s disappearance.
Two months before Summer Wells went missing, her father was arrested for possessing a firearm while intoxicated. He was sentenced to just over a year in prison for his arrest on April 21, 2021.
Summer would vanish only 55 days later. On October 30, 137 days later, her father, Don, would run into trouble again, this time for DUI.
Because he was on probation at the time, the judge was forced to imprison him for violating the terms of his probation, despite the fact that the judge acknowledged that this was his first DUI offense.
Summer would be gone in just 55 days.
On October 30, 137 days later, her father, Don, would be arrested for the second time, this time for DUI.
Because he was on probation at the time, the judge was forced to imprison him for violating his probation terms, despite the fact that the judge acknowledged that this was his first DUI.
Was Summer Wells found dead?
Ronnie Lawson, the sheriff of Hawkins County, and Leslie Earhart, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman, conducted a press conference on the day that marked one year since Summer Wells vanished. They thought back to the beginning of the case.
Earhart claimed that the TBI sent out an Amber Alert the day after Summer vanished. Within 24 hours of that alarm, she said, investigators had hoped to have encouraging news.
She claimed that there were very few leads in this case, and every avenue is still being considered.
The case has so far consumed thousands of man hours. More than 100 TBI agents, analysts, and professionals have searched social media accounts, digital evidence, and physical evidence gathered through search warrants.
They have also conducted numerous targeted ground searches, as well as three large-scale ground searches. In addition to more than 170 official interviews, numerous follow-up calls and emails have been made.
Authorities have sorted through tens of thousands of tips, but they claim that the search has been hampered by false leads generated by online speculation and those looking to profit from Summer’s kidnapping.
Some people, she claims, have even requested donations for her and her family, but they have never arrived.
Summer Wells Letter
Don Wells, Summer Wells’ father, made public a letter he had written to the young girl and those he believed to be her potential captors.
The letter was published on Summer Wells’ website. Don Wells expressed his continued belief that his daughter was kidnapped in the letter.
Furthermore, he demanded that the “kidnappers” hand over the girl to the police, despite the fact that the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has consistently stated that there is no evidence to support the family’s kidnapping claim.
The letter also claims that Don Wells was fired from his 13-year job and that Summer’s mother, Candus Bly, is unable to find work, threatening the family’s existence. Anyone with credible information should call 1-800-TBI-FIND.
The death of once child can be devastating nit to talk of when she has been declared missing. Summer Wells is yet to be found and her absence put have put her parents in great distress for more than year.
We hope that beautiful Summer Wells will be found soon.
