NEW PORT RICHEY, FLA - Brooklyn Peck was 21 years old when she disappeared on the morning of 10/26/2015. At around 2am on 10/26/2015, Brooklyn left the home she was staying at off Hillside Drive to meet someone at the Sunoco on US 19.
Brooklyn never returned and was never heard from again. Her cell phone has not made any outgoing calls since 6:17am on 10/26/2015. Brooklyn had intended to return home for a court date she had on 10/27, as evidenced by the clothes she had laid out before she left. She was reported missing by family on 11/10/2015. It is out of character for Brooklyn to not make contact with her family and the circumstances surrounding her disappearance are suspicious.
Brooklyn was known to visit the Leisure Lane and Van Doren Avenue area. She is 4’11, 100-115 lbs., brown hair and hazel eyes. She has a large clock tattoo on her right chest, a large skull tattoo on her left chest, and tattoos on both wrists and writing from shoulder to shoulder on the upper chest. There are tattoos on her left thigh and her ear. She had many piercings, including her septum and above her lip. Brooklyn is also missing the tip of her index finger on her left hand. Brooklyn was involved in sex work and drug misuse at the time of her disappearance. There were many leads related to these two factors, which have been followed up on with negative results.
When telling the story of her disappearance, it is important to note that Brooklyn was much more than the addiction she was experiencing or the work she was engaged in. The first two pictures in this post are what Brooklyn looked like at the time of her disappearance. The other photos were provided by the family. Her childhood photos show her going to Busch Gardens, baking cookies, and blowing kisses to the camera. Her teenage photos show her grabbing Starbucks and playing mini golf. We wanted to show the public a better picture of who Brooklyn was –full of life with a big personality and a family that cared about her.
Brooklyn is described by her family as a nice, personable, caring human being. She was a loving daughter, niece, cousin, and sister. Her mom told us that Brooklyn loved when the family was together – they would walk trails and go fishing. Brooklyn always went above and beyond, and she was a friend to everyone. She is deeply missed by her family.
NPRPD has been working this case in conjunction with the FBI since 2015. NPRPD Detectives are still actively searching for Brooklyn and appreciate any help the public can provide. If you have any information on what happened to Brooklyn, please contact Detective Corporal Joseph Ioppolo at 727-232-8905.
