GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Police are releasing information about the last known whereabouts of a mother believed to be murdered -- in hopes someone can help investigators determine where Asia Brown, 22, went after visiting an auto parts store on Feb. 20.

Brown and her 2-year-old son Ashton were reported missing two days after a 2005 Buick Lacrosse was purchased and registered by the mother. It was found the next day burned with two dead bodies inside the next day.

Reports from the Medical Examiner’s Office have yet to positively identify the bodies as Brown and her son but detectives say they can’t wait any longer to the ask the public for help.

Brown was last seen at the Auto Zone on South Randleman Road eight weeks ago. According to detectives, she was driving the car with the tag DDA-4732. Brown’s son was not with her around 3:20 p.m. when she was seen inside the store.

Police are at a loss for where she went from there but know that she missed work on consecutive days following that stop on Randleman Road.

“We're looking for anyone that could have possibly seen here there or after that on that day,” said Captain Mike Richey, with the Greensboro Police Department.

Police believe anonymous tips to the Greensboro Crime Stoppers line at (336) 373-1000 could be their best chance of getting information that could help them track where Brown went from there. You can also text information and remain anonymous by using the keyword BADBOYZ and sending information to 274637.

Police say someone inside the store with Brown at the time may have information that could help investigators track down the next clue in the case.

The store is between a DMV office in High Point, where Brown registered the car around 1:30 p.m. that Friday, and her home near downtown Greensboro.

Brown's neighbors said she is quiet but nice. They said she may have just begun a job at a fast food restaurant before going missing.
