Ricky Jean Bryant was last seen in Mauston, Wisconsin on December 19, 1949. Her parents were out. And her grandparents were watching her and two of her siblings. A third child was in school. Sometime during the day, a fire broke out at the Jeannie house.

Jeannie’s five-year-old brother stated that they were standing in the yard together. They were watching the fire when a woman drove up in an expensive-looking car and urged him to get help. She directed him to a house down the road. However, there was another residence close by.

When Jeannie’s brother returned, both his sister and the unidentified woman were gone. Jeannie’s grandmother, however, contradicted her grandson’s version of events. She said she took Jeannie’s brother and sister outside when the fire started. They went into the house to find Jeannie and called for her several times without result.

Most authorities believe Jeannie died in the fire that consumed her house. Some possible bone fragments were sent to a state laboratory for analysis. However, they were not identified as hers. Jeannie’s siblings believe she may have been hidden by other family members and is possibly still alive. They think Jeannie was possibly conceived out of wedlock and the fire was set as a diversion so someone could take Jeannie away from her home and to the care of her biological father.

It was at her siblings’ request that authorities reopened the investigation into Jeannie’s disappearance. They agreed to the request over fifty years after Jeanie vanished. A Minnesota woman had her DNA tested against the Bryant’s family in 2006. But the results were not a match. Her case remains unsolved.

Ricky Jean Bryant has been missing for over 68 years old. Now authorities are re-opening the case of her mysterious disappearance. Why would a house fire be used as a cover for what may actually have been done? IT is odd that Jeanie’s body had never been found after the event. If she had been died in the house fire, it is odd that her body never was found. No wonder her living siblings want answers. If Jeanie is still alive, where would she be? She probably has grown up, she probably is believing she may be someone else. Her life would have been based on lies. All those who care for Jeanie need, want, and deserve answers after all these years of theories and suspicions.
