The Disappearance of Bradley Wayne Allen


Bradley Allen has been missing since July 18th, 2017. At the time of his disappearance, the then-38-year-old lived with his girlfriend, Megan Coady, and their young son. Their residence is in Fountain Hill, Arkansas, on a twenty-acre property that belongs to Bradley’s family. Many other members of Bradley’s family live on the property as well. 

Bradley vanished during early-morning hours after he and his girlfriend Megan reportedly got into an argument. According to Megan, Bradley decided to go for a walk around 3:00 AM so he could cool off and get some fresh air. Megan reportedly went to sleep after Bradley left, and when she woke up the next morning, he had still not returned. Bradley has never been seen or heard from again.

Megan notified Bradley’s cousin, Jennifer Davidson, that Bradley had not come home. The two searched for Bradley around the property before eventually going to talk to Bradley’s sister, Angie Allen-Clavet. Angie was living on the family’s property as well, but unfortunately, she had not seen or heard from Bradley.

Bradley’s worried loved ones were told that they needed to wait three days before they could file a missing person’s report. They spent the next three days searching and contacting Bradley’s employers, coworkers, and friends to no avail. While searching for him, it was noted that he had left his wallet and his bank cards behind. The only item Bradley left the house with was his cell phone, which had either died or been turned off.

Bradley was finally reported as missing on July 21st, 2017. Police interviewed all individuals living on the 20-acre property and received their statements. Investigators also searched the property, but reportedly did not find any clues. Both cadaver dogs and track dogs were brought to the property as well. The track dogs reportedly tracked Bradley’s scent for several miles before his scent was eventually lost. Police also obtained a search warrant for Bradley’s cell phone records. The records showed that all activity on Bradley’s phone stopped shortly after he left his home on July 18th.

It is uncharacteristic for Bradley to be out-of-touch with his loved ones, especially his children. However, about a month before his disappearance, Bradley reportedly had a falling out with his parents, sister, and brother-in-law. It’s unclear if investigators believe this is related to his disappearance or not. So far, no persons of interest have been identified in the case.

The Ashley County Sheriff’s Office is investigating Bradley’s disappearance. If you have any information that could help the investigation, please call 870-853-2040.
