          Woman Describes Moment She Realized Daughter Was Missing


          February 13, 2017

          On August 31, 2016, Kala Brown and her boyfriend, Charlie Carver disappeared. Her mom, Bonnie Newsom, says Kala’s friends realized something was wrong because she was not responding to anyone, and they alerted her.

          “At first, I thought it was just them messing with me. I guess I wanted it to be,” Bonnie tells Dr. Phil in an exclusive interview airing Monday.

          But Bonnie says her daughter’s car was parked in front of her apartment and her dog and personal belongings were left inside, so she soon realized there might be foul play involved.

          “Even though I knew it wasn’t right – she wasn’t contacting anybody, she wasn’t on social media – in my mind, I guess, as a parent wanting the best case scenario, I was hoping they’d went to the beach,” Bonnie says in the video above. “I just had to keep telling myself she’s OK. We can find her.”
