Stephanie Marie Gant-Brady was an accomplished woman who mysteriously vanished after leaving her home in Baltimore, Maryland, more than 35 years ago.
She was the first African-American woman to graduate as a lieutenant in the Maryland National Guard. Not only that, but Brady was also a member of the Governor’s Committee for the Handicapped.
Brady had multiple sclerosis.
On April 8, 1984, a male companion told law enforcement that Brady, who may also be known as “Penny,” went to London with plans of writing a novel.
Despite his claim, Brady did not purchase a passport, nor did she pack any of her belongings, not even her wheelchair and cane, according to the Baltimore County Police.
They were all left behind at her home, located in the 4600 block of Horizon Circle, 21207, in the Precinct 2/Woodlawn area.
She also left her paycheck.
Brady was 39 years old when she went missing, and she was 5’3″ tall and weighed 110 pounds. She also had brown hair and brown eyes.
Investigators said the last time anyone saw her, she was “wearing an opal ring and a pinky ring with a small diamond.”
Foul play is suspected in her disappearance.
Anyone with information regarding the disappearance of Stephanie Marie Gant-Brady is encouraged to contact the Baltimore County Police Department at (410) 887-3943.
