Police press conference: Reward offered for Sumter man missing since August

Anyone with information about Brailey’s disappearance should call the Sumter Police Department at (803) 436-2700 or call Crime Stoppers at (803) 436-2718 or 1-888-274-6372.

The disappearance of Tommy Brailey, a 52-year-old man who was last seen at a Sumter bar at the end of August, is proving to be a puzzling case for investigators. He reportedly planned to attend a football game the week after he was last seen, and his family and law enforcement close to the case seem to think his absence was not his intention.

Since he has been missing, Brailey’s family has maintained he is someone who always checks in. An impromptu news conference at the Sumter Police Department on Monday helped solidify that point.

Lt. Charles Banghart, an investigator with the department, said Brailey, described by multiple family members as an avid sports fan, had already purchased tickets to the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Carolina Panthers game

Missing person conference offers support, resources to families, law enforcement

The 13th Annual National Missing Persons Conference is being held in Wilmington through Sunday.

WILMINGTON – In conference rooms of the Holiday Inn off Market Street, law enforcement officials, advocates, volunteers and family members of victims met for the 13th Annual National Missing Persons Conference.

The conference was started by Monica Caison, the founder of the CUE Center for Missing Persons, in order to provide resources for victims’ families and allow for law enforcement agencies and other advocates to discuss new technology and techniques for solving unsolved crimes.

“What makes our conference different from any other conference worldwide is the victim is offered the same training that the investigators are,” Caison said. “From private investigators, law enforcement, search teams, and just professionals, it helps empower them and it helps them bring back and educate people in their communities that may have a missing person.”
