A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Mark Randle, a 45-year-old with strong ties to Fairfield and Vallejo. Randle’s known aliases include Tweezy, Tweez and Mark Twain.
“Information provided to detectives leads them to believe Miss Brown is no longer alive,” the release read.
The department said their officers and detectives have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to resolve this case.
“Although we hoped to safely return Ms. Brown to those who care for her, we felt from the outset that her disappearance was suspicious in nature, and have treated it as such,” police said.

“We extend our deepest condolences to Erica’s family and friends during this difficult time and are committed to bringing Mark Randle to justice,” the department said.
