Background: Summer Utah Wells is a now 6-year-old girl that mysteriously went missing from her home property around 17:30 on June 15, 2021, in Hawkins County Beach Creek Community, Tennessee. What makes this so profoundly odd was that Summer's Mother, Grandmother, and Three Brothers were all home at the time of Summer's disappearance. Both the Mother and Grandmother stated they heard or saw nothing out of the ordinary. The three brothers are all underaged with no known public statements from them on what they know.
Additionally, the home had numerous dogs running loose on the property as many as 13, and alerted the family when people approached, but on June 15 2021 no dogs sounded any alarms. According to the Father, the dogs "were not there that day".
The property itself was littered with discarded cans, wrappers, and trash to the extent that it reminded me of Kensington Avenue in Philadelphia. Often this type of littering is related to substance abuse.
- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) issued an Amber Alert on June 16th of 2021.
Massive searches ensued following the 911 call on June 15th, Search teams from Tennessee with aerial, search dogs, and dive team support were used in an effort to find Summer, as well as a specialized search team of Equusearch Midwest that pull their resources to assist as well. The hot summer weather of the remote rural hilly area made searching very difficult. Some search Teams returned in the fall of the year in hopes of finding clues without having to deal with dense foliage and hot humid weather, these additional searches were to no avail.
Brothers Removed: Following the disappearance of Summer Wells, Summer's three brothers were taken from the parents by child services due to living conditions and safety concerns.
The Adult Family Members: Do your own research on the family. The Father and other relatives of Summer Wells have a very checkered past with drugs and sex-related crimes, some served time in prison for sex and drug-related offenses.

The Grandmother's own daughter Rose Marie Bly went missing on August 21 2009 and is still missing today, 13 years later. The Brother of the Grandmother Warren Harer served prison time for sexually related crimes involving incest with a child and has since been released and under close surveillance in WI.
