Texas man who called 911, then vanished in 2013 remains missing

The last trace of a 26-year-old Texas man who disappeared more than three years ago is a disturbing 911 call.

Brandon Lawson called 911 after running out of gas on a highway in San Angelo, Tex., and getting into some sort of trouble, NBC 5 Dallas reported. He was last seen on Aug. 8, 2013.

“Yes, I'm in the middle of a field (inaudible) pushed some guys over, right here going toward Abilene, on both sides,” Lawson says, according to a transcript of the call. “My truck ran out of gas, there's one car here, the guy's chasing (inaudible) to the woods, please hurry!”

He also says, according to the transcript, “We're not talking to him (inaudible) I told you I ran into em...that's the first guy.”

The station reported that when the 911 operator asks Lawson if he needs an ambulance, he replies, “No. I need the cops.” The station reported that Lawson hasn’t been heard from since.

His girlfriend Ladessa Lofton and their four kids are still struggling with his disappearance.
