Summer Father Statements After Disaperance
Don Wells, the father of 5-year-old Summer Wells, spoke with News Channel 11 about the disappearance of his daughter from their home in Hawkins County Tuesday night.
Wells wanted to first thank the community and responding agencies.
“We really appreciate the outpouring of love,” said Wells. “We’ve never seen so many good people in one place.”
According to Wells, Summer was planting flowers just before her disappearance Tuesday night.
“She was planting flowers with her mother and her grandmother and she wanted to go into the house, so my wife watched her go into the door and she went into the house,” said Wells. “And the boys were on the internet of course, and she wanted to go downstairs and play with her toys. So when her mother [came] in and she says, ‘Summer ‘ and she went down into the basement and she didn’t answer. So she went down there and she was gone. So she went out the basement door, which was unlocked, and we haven’t seen her since.”
