BRYAN, Texas -- A Texas A&M University student who had been feared murdered after disappearing nearly seven years ago has been found alive and working in Northern Kentucky, according to authorities.

After Brandi Stahr went missing in October 1998, police searched for her body in wooded parts of Brazos County, at one point even questioning a serial rapist and murderer just hours before he was executed last year.

But a telephone tip led investigators to Florence, Ky., where Stahr has been working for the past five years at a Sam's Club, Texas Ranger Frank Malinak said.

"We thought we were dealing with a missing persons case," Malinak said. "But, in actuality, we were dealing with a person who did not want to be found and was in hiding."

Stahr, 27, and her mother, Ann Dickenson, had argued over bad grades she received during her sophomore year at A&M.

"She wasn't going to school and doing what she was supposed to do," Dickenson said. "When we cut off the charge cards and stopped paying for school, she got mad and said she didn't want a damn thing from us."

Dickenson was just a few months from having her daughter declared legally dead, she said.

Dickenson and Stahr haven't reunited yet, but have talked by telephone.

Stahr has been upset by the media coverage of her reappearance and has told a sister that the family should not bother visiting her.

But her mother said nothing will keep her from seeing her daughter.

"We're going. I'm going. Even if I have to sit out in a (Sam's Club) parking lot to see her," Dickenson said.

Although Stahr committed no crime in her disappearance, investigators spent a lot of money and time looking for her, Malinak said.

Texas Rangers renewed their search efforts in 2001.

"The responsible thing to do would have been to let someone know you're OK," Malinak said. "There are going to be people expending man-hours and effort, trying to find a missing person."

Hey, I live in Texas and I .... Wait, I don't resent that comment. I HATE this place and I am only here for a job. It's cheap as snit to live here though so that's a decent thing. But honestly, I well yeah, haven't met too many people that seem very smart here. I mean I'm from NY and in like 8th grade math there we did things that seniors in high school math do here. Really ridiculous if you ask me. :2cents:

Extremely ridiculous. Public education in America is a joke now. I mean I honestly didnt think it was that bad when I was in school, but I think its gone down the tubes in the past 6-7 years.

Here is an another example of someone leaving, and other people getting out of control. I will be surprised if local LEO doesn't try to bill her for money they expended. She hasn't broken any laws and she doesn't have to explain herself to anyone. If I decide I want to move to Bozeman, Montana, or Detroit Michigan, and not tell anyone, It's my right. As long as I don't leave debts hanging and defraud people, I can go anywhere I want to and not explain it to anyone

The title to this thread is hilarious. My dad went to TAMU for 8 years and he's certainly done quite well for himself. :lol:

yes, the Fly-in is a pretty good address...not a bad golf course either...

Check your grammar there and reconsider. :lol: Hell, look at this whole damn board. I don't care where anyone is from, only two or three members can write for ****.

Snakeman, I can't stand Texas schools and I'm sure a vice versa feeling is mutual. A&M is a very good school, though.

ACTUALLY schools in the midwest and east coast rate much higher in academics than those on the west coast :wink:

It's all relative. The west coast is entirely screwed. I actually went to a private and then a public school in San Diego in 1987 for 7th, then 8th grade. Even then it was pathetic.

I actually like OSU. But like you said, I may like to see OU get beat on the football field but it's still a great university that I personally wouldnt knock anyone for attending.
