HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Jaimee Jenkins and Hannah Brillon say they are not giving up on finding out what happened to their father who disappeared seven years ago this week. They describe their dad Brian Jenkins as a troubled but loving father.

“When he was clean and sober, he was such a good dad,” said Jaimee. “Really involved with us. And when he drank, he was a whole other person.”

They said that years of caring for their father took a toll on them and on April 18, 2015, Brian agreed to leave Hannah’s Hoosick Falls home to attend a substance abuse program at the Albany City Rescue Mission. But almost as soon as he arrived, Hannah said her father called, asking her to pick him up. She said she told her father that she would pick him up in the morning, “He was OK with that,” she said.

Hannah said she then got a text from her dad saying he was walking down by the Hudson River. Hannah said she called him, but it went straight to voicemail. Brian’s daughters later learned that he visited Albany Medical Center, possibly for heart medication, but then checked himself out.

The sisters said they think it was the last time anyone saw their father. They said it was not in his nature to disappear for long periods of time. “It’s just not like him,” said Hannah. “I don’t think he would walk away.”

Hannah said she believes her dad is likely deceased. But her sister is still holding out hope. “Part of me thinks he might have walked off and just doesn’t want us to know what happened to him,” Jaimee said. “It’s just so hard to say.”

They are not alone. Far and wide across the globe, and here at home, families hope to find missing loved ones. Shaker High School teacher Megan Marohn disappeared in March, prompting a massive search in Berkshire County after she told loved ones she was going for a hike.

There are much older cases too, like that of Frank Connell. He went missing on April 20, 2007, near Gibson’s Bar in Rensselaer. Rensselaer Police said his disappearance is considered suspicious.

There are many other cases in the Capital Region, as well. Call Albany Police at (518) 462-8039 if you know anything about what happened to Brian Jenkins. If you have any information on the cases of Megan Marohn or Frank Connell, you are asked to contact your local police department.
