On the day when Sergio Brown was preparing for his first National Football League (NFL) start in 2014 in three years and his first role as an Indianapolis Colt, he received a message. His mother, Myrtle Brown, texted him about how it had been twelve years since his father, Mario Brown, passed from cancer.

Sergio had big shoes to fill since his father had been the first African-American ever to play college basketball at Texas A&M. The football player recalled how influential his father was to him and in their neighborhood, where he knew all the children on their block and pushed them to get better grades at school.

October 5 wasn't an easy day for Sergio, who lost his father in 2002 while a freshman in high school. However, he managed to finish his schooling and spent four years at Notre Dame and then sprung into his football career.

Ironically, he got his big shot with the Colts twelve years to the day after he lost Mario. The athlete was so focused on his game that he didn't think about his father's death and the date until his mother's text, and when he did, he realized "it just felt like it was right."

Hearing those words set him free and gave him peace of mind; Sergio knew things would be okay, and he could play without any worries. Mario's son played an incredible game, leading Myrtle to tell him after the game that his father would've been proud.

Little did Sergio know that all the joy would be taken from his life when another tragedy would strike years later. This time, it directly involved him and his mother, with their family members reaching out for assistance on social media.

When Did Sergio and Myrtle Go Missing?

On September 16, 2023, Sergio's family members struggled to find Sergio and Myrtle or get in contact with them. They reported the mother and son pair missing on the same day to the Maywood, Illinois, police.
