News Release
Vancouver Police seek information on missing man on one year anniversary of his disappearance (Photo) - 05/12/22

Vancouver, Wash. –On May 24, 2021, Brandon Thomas Majors (DOB: 4-5-1986) was reported missing by his mother, after not hearing from him since Mother’s Day 2021 (May 9, 2021). After being reported missing, Vancouver Police Detectives began an investigation into Brandon’s whereabouts/disappearance.

Detectives developed a timeline of Brandon’s whereabouts on May 12, 2021, when he was last seen by acquaintances.

The timeline is as follows:

  • Brandon was last observed on the evening of May 12, 2021, in the Rose Village neighborhood in Vancouver, Washington.
  • Brandon left the Rose Village neighborhood on the evening of May 12, 2021, in a gray BMW SUV.
  • Approximately one hour after Brandon left in that vehicle, VPD Officers responded to reports that a BMW had driven into the Columbia River.
  • Vancouver Police, along with partnering agencies, searched the area of the crashed vehicle; however, no one was located.
  • Witnesses reported seeing multiple people flee the area of the BMW.

Vancouver Police Detectives have conducted dozens of interviews, none which have resulted in information on what happened to Brandon. Based on interviews with Brandon’s acquaintances, many believe that foul play was involved with Brandon’s disappearance; however, no one has reported having firsthand information of what occurred.  Several people that Brandon was last observed with have refused to cooperate with the investigation. 

In July 2021, Vancouver Police submitted the case to Crime Stoppers of Oregon. No tips from that have resulted in information that led to locating Brandon or determining what happened to him. The investigation and Crime Stopper case remain active.  

Throughout the investigation, Vancouver Police Detectives assigned to this case have maintained a close relationship with Brandon’s family, who are seeking answers and closure as to what happened to him.  The attached photographs of Brandon were provided by his mother, Beverly Bagley. 

If you, or someone you know has information regarding the location of Brandon Thomas Majors, or information related to his disappearance, please contact Vancouver Police Detective Zachary Ripp at 360-487-7391, Information can also be provided, including anonymously, through Crime Stoppers of Oregon at: Missing Persons - Crime Stoppers of Oregon.
