Summer Wells

5-year-old Summer Moon Utah Wells went missing from her home in Rogersville, Tennessee on June 15th, 2021. Summer's father, Don Wells was at work while Summer’s mother, Candus Bly, says Summer went down into the basement to play and when she went to check on her just a few minutes later, she was gone.

Summer is a white female with very short blonde hair and blue eyes. She is approximately 3 feet tall and weighs 40 pounds. Anyone with information about Summer is urged to call 1800-TBI-Find. Authorities are also looking for the driver of a 1998-2000 red or maroon toyota truck with a full bed ladder rack and white buckets in the truck bed.
