On Sunday, May 1, 1994 around midnight, Brian Smith was last seen alone on Front Street between the Ice House Bar and the Micky Ratz Nightclub in Wilmington. The next week on Sunday, May 8, 1994, his body was found in Towncreek (Brunswick County) approximately eight miles from the Towncreek bridge on Highway 17. 

Special attention should be given to this notice in England since the icebreaker, the HMS Endurance, was in port at the time and some of sailors from that ship may have seen or heard something which would provide important information to investigators. The victim also spelled his name as Bryan. 

If you have information about this case, call the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office (910) 253-2777.  If you have information about this case or any unsolved case in North Carolina, please contact the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, (800) 334-3000.
