That evening the Hancock County Sheriff’s were attempting to pull over a car around Delise Exit mile marker 20 in Mississippi, when it sped off.

The driver then He pulled off the highway and ran into the woods along with the passengers. Authorities arrested the driver and a passenger but one was not found and they believe that person was Brennan.

And what does the driver and passenger say? One says Brennan was in the car and the other says he wasn’t.
