‘Where is Brittany?’: Mother desperate for answers after daughter disappears

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The mother of 23-year-old Brittany Palmer is desperate for answers in her daughter’s strange disappearance. Palmer was last seen Aug. 22. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate with no major leads.

“Every day, I look for her phone call because I know she’s going to call me,” Vontria Mobley, Palmer’s mother, said while fighting back tears. “She hasn’t called.”

Palmer was last at her friend’s mother’s home in the New Town neighborhood at the corner of Baldwin and Barber streets. Mobley suspects her daughter got mixed in with the wrong crowd who may have been after her money.

Palmer also has a twin sister, Brianna. “She was always the type to give people the benefit of the doubt, and I know she was still angry about her money,” Brianna said. Action News Jax’s Robert Grant asked Brianna if she thought her sister was too trusting. Brianna said, “Yes. I think she was too trusting.”

Palmer was in a car crash five years ago, which left her with a brain injury, and she has a limp. Her family said she uses a cane or walker.

In an email to Action News Jax, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office stated it still "seeks information regarding the whereabouts of Brittany Palmer. We ask anyone who has seen her in the past month to contact us at 904-630-0500 or by emailing JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org.
