There's no shortage of mysterious roadside disappearances in this country's history. In fact, if you want to get abducted by aliens, I'm starting to think your best bet is to just stand by your car at the side of the road.
Brandon Lawson was a 26-year-old father of four who lived in San Angelo, Texas with his girlfriend. On the night of August 9, 2013, he left his home just before midnight after he and his girlfriend got into a fight.
Approximately 45 minutes later, he called his brother to say he'd run out of gas. He then called 9-1-1. The recording of the call has been widely distributed and analyzed...it's very difficult to interpret in places, but here's a sample:
Brandon: Yes, I'm in the middle of the field ...(inaudible)...right here, goin' towards Abiline, on both sides........my truck ran out of gas... there's one car here...(inaudible). Please hurry.
9-1-1 Emergency: Ok. Now. Run that by me.....?

When Brandon's brother arrived, his truck was there but he was nowhere to be found. His keys and cell phone were missing, as well.
He had an outstanding felony warrant at the time he disappeared, but he was the one who called 911 and asked for them to send the police. Could he have somehow gotten afraid that he'd be arrested and taken off? Or an even better question...what could have spooked him so badly that he'd call and ask for the police when he knew he had an outstanding warrant?
What do you think happened to Brandon Lawson?
