Summer Moon’s Disappearance
Summer was last seen at her home in the 100 block of Ben Hill Road in the Beech Creek area of Rogersville, Tennessee on June 15, 2021, between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.
Her older brothers claimed she went downstairs to play and they never saw her again. She has never been heard from again; her family claims she simply vanished without anyone noticing or hearing anything unusual. An extensive search yielded no results, despite the fact that search dogs tracked her scent through the woods at the end of Ben Hill Road.
Eleven days after Summer vanished, authorities asked the public for help locating a truck seen in the area between the late afternoon and early evening hours of June 14 and June 15. The truck is described as a red or maroon Toyota Tacoma from 1998 to 2000, with a full-bed ladder rack and white buckets in the bed.
The vehicle and its occupants have yet to be identified. Authorities have stated that the driver is not a suspect, but they want to speak with them to find out what they know and what they may have seen.
Summer’s family was investigated for possible involvement in her disappearance. There have been domestic violence issues between her parents, Donald Wells and Candus Bly, and Donald has been arrested for domestic violence on multiple occasions. He stated he was at work when Summer disappeared, and that both he, Candus and Candus’s mother had all passed polygraphs about Summer’s disappearance.
Summer’s three older brothers, ages seven to twelve, were removed from the family home by the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services about a month after Summer went missing for unknown reasons. Police questioned them about the case after they were removed. They’ve also spoken with people who stayed at the home in the months leading up to Summer’s disappearance.
In Summer’s case, authorities have not named anyone as a suspect. Donald stated that he believes his daughter was kidnapped by someone other than his family.
Rose Bly, Summer’s aunt, went missing in Wisconsin in 2009 and has never been found. The two cases are not thought to be connected. Both are still unsolved.
