Last Seen: February 27, 1991 at her place of employment at Carl's Bad Tavern (owned by Carl Easterling) located along State Route 550 approximately two miles north of Bellefonte, Pennsylvania near Interstate 80 (Spring Township in Centre County). Condon was employed as a bartender and was last seen by a patron at the bar on February 27, 1991 between 12:45 and 1:15 AM (by various accounts) talking to an unknown man at the bar.
According to her sister, Condon had worked only three days at Carl’s Bad Tavern when she disappeared. She was to close the bar after last call that night and reopen a few hours later as the day shift bartender, with her shift due to end at 6 PM. During the day time shift a cigarette vending machine serviceman walked into the unlocked bar, restocked the machine and departed without realizing anything was amiss. When Condon’s relief arrived at 6 PM for the night shift he noticed her car, a gray 1986 Mercury Capri (similar to this one), was in the parking area but she was not present. The bar appeared undisturbed and there were no obvious signs of a struggle. Condon's cowboy boots were found by investigators in the men's restroom of the bar, undisturbed. It is unknown if this occurrence is related to her disappearance. No evidence of any other crime was detected during the investigation.
Condon was reported missing to police the evening of Feb. 27, but the search did not begin until March 2. Condon was scheduled to pick up her two children in Clearfield, where she is originally from, on March 2 for visitation. When she failed to arrive, police began the search.
Condon is the mother of two children (Shawna & Todd Condon, 10 & 12 years old at the time). In addition to being involved in her children's lives, Brenda Condon ran two arms of a cleaning-service franchise, one in Williamsport and one in State College. Only a few months before she disappeared, she moved from Williamsport to State College to be closer to the homes she cleaned and to be closer to her children.
An extensive search of the area was conducted in the search for Condon. Local and state police claim to have conducted numerous interviews over the years with no solid results. A state police investigator has publically stated that there a few people in the state who may have helpful information but they have stopped talking to police. “We do have some suspicions…there’s two or three that we’ve spoken with that we’d like to ask some more questions of, but they don’t want to talk to us anymore.”
Brenda Louise Condon remains missing.
