Circumstances of Disappearance

Frances Brewster was last seen in October 1999 when she moved out of a retirement center in Bend. She was last seen in Sunriver living with a relative.

The relative told police Brewster left with Walter Cierley in his motor home to travel around the country. Cierley was formerly married to Brewster's sister. Foul play is suspected. Relatives of Brewster and Cierley have been unable to contact the two and have not heard from them on important dates as they had in the past.

Brewster was allegedly killed by her son, who then cashed her social security checks. The son killed himself when confronted by Seattle, WA police on a Deschutes County Arrest Warrant. Brewster is believed to have been buried in the Central Oregon area. Her son never admitted to the killing.
