The Investigation into Summer Wells’ Disappearance
On June 15, 2021, Summer had been outside planting flowers with her mother, Candus Bly, and her maternal grandmother, Candus Harper. At some point, Summer went inside of the house to play with her older brothers. When Bly came inside to check on the children, she asked the boys where Summer was. They stated that Summer had gone downstairs to play with her toys in the playroom, which was in the home’s daylight walkout basement. When Bly went downstairs, she found the basement’s walkout door was open and Summer was gone. Bly, the unnamed grandmother, and Summer’s brothers began searching for Summer and Bly called her husband, Don Wells, who was at work. He rushed home to aid in the search.
