Missing Tennessee Girl

Missing Tennessee Girl : Summer Wells, a missing Tennessee girl, has two parents who both have criminal past.

Missing Tennessee GirlSummer Wells, a 5-year-old child who vanished from her family’s rural Tennessee home little over two weeks ago, has criminal records in neighbouring states, according to court documents.

Summer’s father, Don Wells, had been convicted of many violent offences and served time in jail for drug and burglary convictions in Arkansas, Utah, and Texas.

He was cited for several parole violations in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Candus Bly, Summer’s mother, has a criminal record in Wisconsin, most recently pleading guilty to misdemeanour domestic abuse charges in 2003.

Wells’ criminal history had been exposed by local media earlier this month, and he was questioned about it in an interview with the Kingsport Times-News newspaper, but he refused to discuss his accusations directly.

SUMMER WELLS IN TENNESSEE ARE MISSING FROM THEIR OWN HOME

“In prison, I found God,” Wells told the site. “I began studying the Bible with zeal because I desired to change.”

In October 2020, he was arrested again after Bly accused him of domestic assault and cops discovered him reportedly driving drunk up his own driveway.

According to the criminal complaint, deputies responded to the couple’s home and found Wells pulling up the driveway, smelling of alcohol and with a weapon in the glove box that he was not supposed to have.

After she wrote that, Bly and the children were granted an order of protection “He consumes a lot of alcohol and tosses things around. I’m terrified of getting hurt.

He is physically and mentally abusive to me. I am concerned for the safety of my children and myself.

Because she is staying in her tent on the property, my mother is concerned that he would harm her.”

The domestic complaint was withdrawn less than a week later, according to court documents, and the two appear to have reconciled.

INVESTIGATORS SAY THE SEARCH FOR A MISSING TENNESSEE GIRL HAS BEEN SLOWED BY SPECULATION AND RUMORS IN THE SUMMER WELLS CASE

Wells later admitted to being in possession of a handgun while inebriated.

According to property records, Wells, Bly, and their four young children live in a 780-square-foot house near the centre of an 11-acre wooded tract in Rogersville, Tennessee.

The parents told local media that they thought their daughter had been kidnapped after being enticed outside.

They did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.

Bly told WJHL-TV that she left her daughter in the kitchen for about two minutes with her three siblings. When she returned, she reported that the girl had vanished.

She told the broadcaster, “I asked the boys where their sister was, and they replied she went downstairs.”

Summer, on the other hand, was not present — and has not been seen since.

Summer and her mother, who lives in a separate home on the property, were gardening with Bly soon before the daughter went missing, according to Bly.

The grandma did not react to a request for comment from Fox News right away.

Wells also has an adult son, Donald Wells, who was convicted of child sex crimes in Utah and is a registered sex offender, in addition to Summer’s three younger brothers.

According to detectives, he does not live on or near the Tennessee property, and the senior Wells stated in a Times-News interview that his son was in Utah at the time of Summer’s disappearance.

This isn’t the first time one of Bly’s family has vanished.

Rose Marie Bly, her sister, was last seen on Aug. 21, 2009, leaving her house in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin.

Five days later, police discovered her automobile in a truck lot in Grantsburg, about 15 miles north of Cushing.

Authorities are looking for a possible witness who was last spotted on Ben Hill Road in Rogersville on the day Summer went missing.

This individual is thought to be driving a late 1990s maroon or red Toyota Tacoma with a full-sized ladder rack and white buckets in the bed.

“We want to emphasise that this person is not a suspect, but rather a potential witness who may have heard or seen something that will assist us in our search for Summer,” the TBI stated in a statement released Saturday.

Summer’s driver, as well as anyone else with information on her location, is urged to contact state authorities at 1-800-TBI-FIND.

Residents around Ben Hill Road should also check their security and trail cameras for any hints.

Summer stands approximately 3 feet tall and weighs approximately 40 pounds.

She was last seen in grey leggings and a pink shirt, possibly barefoot. Her blonde hair is cropped short, and she has blue eyes.

Investigators said they are still investigating the circumstances surrounding her abduction, but they are looking into “all possibilities.”
