The circumstances of 5-year-old Summer Wells’s disappearance remain unclear. Reports suggest at this point, the two cases involving both missing family members are not connected.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office are hoping someone will come forward to help them find 5-year-old Summer Moon-Utah Wells. On June 15, 2021, investigators said Summer was reported missing around 6:30 p.m. Within 24 hours the Amber Alert for Tennessee was activated.
The TBI said this in a release, “Should we develop information that she was abducted and have suspect and vehicle specifics to provide, we will share it with the public immediately. As this is an active and ongoing investigation, we cannot share specifics.” TBI said thousands of acres have been searched so far and they are utilizing any resources available for the search.
On June 22, 2021, according to published reports, Summer’s mother took a polygraph. Donald Wells claimed his wife passed the test.
Authorities said in 2009 Summer’s aunt vanished without a trace from Wisconsin. The FBI said Rose Marie Bly, Summer’s mother’s sister, disappeared from St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin. She was 21 years old at the time and was last seen leaving her residence. At the time, according to agents, she was heading to Cushing, Wisconsin.
Bly’s vehicle was found five days after she disappeared. It was located in a parking lot used by truck drivers about 30 miles away from her home.
Reports suggest at this point, the two cases involving both missing family members are not connected.
Bly has brown hair, brown eyes. She stands 5 feet tall and weighed 110 pounds at the time of her disappearance. Bly has two red cherries tattooed on her right ankle. Her ears and navel are pierced.
As for Summer, she stands 3 feet tall and weighs 40 pounds. She has blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt, grey pants and may not have been wearing shoes.
