21 Year Old Kidnapped & Missing Courtney Beard Found Injuried But Alive

Courtney Beard, a mother of two who was kidnapped while going to work at the Green Oak Township Olive Garden by her ex-boyfriend 23 year old Brandon Jay Smith of South Lyon from the parking lot at about 5:20 p.m. Friday after a “physical altercation” occurred as the woman was heading to work.

Kidnapped Courtney Beard found injured by alive

It was first believed Smith had a gun, but witnesses said he had a knife, police said.

Antrim County sheriff’s deputies found Beard at about 5:49 a.m. Saturday at a remote hunting cabin north of Mancelona that Green Oak Township Police Chief Robert Brookins said belongs to a Smith family member.

There is good news in the end from this story as Courtney Beard was found injured but alive in Antrim County early Saturday morning. Courtney Beard suffered from wounds and hypothermia.

Beard had been injured and was suffering from hypothermia from reportedly walking for several hours in the snow to reach the cabin. She was flown by helicopter to Otsego Memorial Hospital in Gaylord for emergency medical treatment.

The nature of her other injuries was not immediately known. The reason for the altercation also was not immediately known, but police said Smith was on electronic tether from a domestic violence case involving Beard. His criminal record also includes a misdemeanor conviction for assault and battery.

Brandon Jay Smith was also at the cabin with Courtney Beard and was taken into custody and arrested.  It is reported by police that Brandon Jay Smith is on probation in connection with a recent assault against Courtney Beard.  Beard’s family says he was ordered to stay away from Courtney Beard, but apparently removed his tether before the alleged kidnapping. The judicial system needs to throw this individual in jail before this stalking winds up in murder.
