Brandy Osborne of Johnston City, Illinois was last seen on Valentine's Day 2020 when she went to visit someone she knew at the barge company in Calvert City, Marshall County, Kentucky. She has never been seen or heard from since. Her vehicle was found there when she parked the vehicle when she went to the location.
Multiple searches including ground and water searches, drones and K9's on ground and water, along with sonar with negative results.
The Missing Persons Awareness Network NFP 501(c)3 was unaware of her disappearance until 10/8/2021, 20 months after she disappeared. We will be working to ensure Brandy is in the NAMUS database. We will be working with her family and law enforcement with multiple agencies to acquire additional information and do what we can to bring her home.
We will be traveling to the area soon.
From the surface with what we have been told, foul play is possible. We will continue our investigation to have a more solid background in order to move Brandy's case forward.
If you have any information, please contact the Kentucky State Police Department or contact us at the numbers on our poster. You can remain anonymous with our organization.
