She was last seen after work at the Luzerne depot near Old York Road and Luzerne Avenue in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on February 18, 1997. She was reported missing that same day. Brennie has never been heard from again. Authorities have speculated that Juan Covington, a diagnosed schizophrenic and former SEPTA employee who has been charged with two murders and is suspected of several more, may have been involved in her case.
