    Brandy Lynn Hall (32) missing from Malabar, FL since 8/17/2006

    https://www.floridatoday.com/story/n...me/2194943002/

    Brandy Hall, a volunteer firefighter in Malabar, left the station house around 10:45 p.m. Aug. 17, 2006. She then spoke with Palm Bay Fire Captain Randall Richmond on the phone for 10 minutes and 46 seconds. That is the last phone record of anyone speaking with her.

    It was revealed later that Hall and Richmond ? both married ? were having an affair.

    Her truck was found in a nearby pond the following day. Richmond, after initially telling police he had not spoken with her in weeks, told investigators a few days later that Brandy said she was leaving town.

    Was Brandy Hall the victim of foul play ? or did she simply decide to walk away from a complicated personal situation? The morning she was discovered to be missing, her husband, former Osceola fire captain Jeff Hall ,was to be sentenced to prison for operating a marijuana grow house.

    More than 12 years after the 32-year-old mother-of-two vanished, the search for Brandy Hall continues.

    On Wednesday, several groups with cadaver dogs, numerous volunteers, a noted forensic anthropologist, Brandy's mother and daughter and private investigator Nicolas Sandberg will begin searching wooded areas and wetlands in the Palm Bay area hoping to find any clue that may solve the mystery, News 6 partner Florida Today reported.
    The case is rife with many unusual circumstances. Drugs. The affair. A public argument. A lost police tip. Alibis that seemed to lose credibility as time passed. Rumors that police could never substantiate.

    There were Brandy's belongings turning up one and then two years after she went missing in different parts of the region. Her bag, still containing some of her belongings, was discovered in a canal in Vero Beach in 2007. In 2008, her fire helmet washed ashore near Mather's Bridge in Indian Harbour Beach.

    The case was the focus of season three of Florida Today's award-winning podcast "Murder on the Space Coast." And that's where private eye Nic Sandberg comes in. Sandberg, who spent 15 years in law enforcement in South Carolina and who grew up in Palm Bay area, listened to the podcast and decided to get involved.
    Wednesday's search is focusing in on areas where cadaver dogs previously alerted. The hope is with more sophisticated equipment and a small army of volunteer searchers -- including dogs from Peace River Search and Rescue -- something will turn up.

    Also assisting in the search is Arpad Vass, a noted forensic anthropologist and professor at the Law Enforcement Innovation Center at the University of Tennessee. Vass hopes to use his newly patented grave-detecting machine, which uses DNA from one of Brandy's family members, to locate her remains.

    The Palm Bay Police ruled Brandy's disappearance a homicide and the investigation technically remains open.

    Brandy was last seen leaving the Malabar Volunteer Fire Department where she worked in the 1800 block of Malabar Road in Malabar, Florida at 10:45 p.m. on August 17, 2006. She was supposed to work a full night shift, but left work early, saying she needed to go home.

    She drove away in her green Chevrolet truck and has never been heard from again. Her truck was found submerged in a nearby pond off Treeland Boulevard the following day. A photograph of the truck is posted with this case summary.

    A substantial amount of Brandy's blood was found inside the cab, although there was not enough blood to prove she was dead. Brandy's firefighting equipment was also found in the pond, as was her cooler. The soda and beer in the cooler were still cold to the touch.

    An extensive search of the pond turned up no sign of Brandy's remains; authorities do not believe her body is there.

    Thirteen years after firefighter Brandy Hall went missing, the Palm Bay police are still actively working to solve her mystery disappearance while Brandy's mother hangs onto hope.

    According to News 6 partner Florida Today, on Friday, Sgt. Jeff Spears along with two crime scene technicians, two cadaver dogs, a private investigator, Brandy's mother Debbie Rogge and an employee of Young's Communication or Y-COM spent the day searching three different places of interest for Brandy's remains with ground-penetrating radar.

    And they may have hit paydirt as the cadaver dogs reacted positively to one of the locations that was also identified by the ground-penetrating radar as a potential gravesite. A dig will soon follow.

    "Palm Bay Police Chief Nelson Moya and the Palm Bay Police Department are committed to solving cold cases and working diligently to bring closure to unsolved investigations," Spears said while navigating marshy terrain and mosquitoes. "Today we're out looking for Brandy Hall and ironically tomorrow marks the 13th anniversary since Brandy's disappearance and we're hoping for some good news. We're hoping to put closure to this case and locate Brandy."

    With a new set of eyes recently assigned to the cold case for Palm Bay police and new information unearthed by private investigator Nic Sandberg, three locations were identified as potential gravesites. Cadaver dogs supplied by Peace River Canine Search and Rescue were set out on each location.

    "We're excited to find articles of interest or remains," said Sandberg, who is working for Brandy's mother pro bono. "The dogs are doing phenomenally out here. We've had a couple of alerts and so we're checking them out."

    Renewed efforts to find a Central Florida firefighter who was last seen more than 13 years ago have yielded results detectives say they will be following up on soon.

    Brandy Hall, a volunteer firefighter in Malabar, was last seen on Aug. 17, 2006. She had been expected to testify the next day at her husband's sentencing for involvement in a marijuana grow house.

    Palm Bay police said Monday that recently deployed cadaver dogs and ground penetrating radar in an area that was known to be frequented by Hall yielded a “positive indication.”

    Police said that due to the sensitive nature of this investigation, the location will not be released.
