Where in the Universe is Miss Brazil?

2/8/2007 3:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former Miss Brazil Taiza ThomsenThe pageant world has been rocked by yet another scandal!

Former Miss Brazil Taiza Thomsen last spoke to her family in September, saying she was in London. After not hearing from the 24-year-old stunner for months, family members contacted authorities to look into her whereabouts. Brazilian police began searching for Thomsen in January, and suggested that human trafficking may have played a role in her inexplicable disappearance!

Luckily, that was not the case. Earlier this week, Brazilian officials revealed that runway runaway Thomsen called them and said, "...she was doing well in London and that she didn't want to be found, not even by her parents." Authorities don't intend to investigate further -- and closed the case.

Thomsen, who competed in Donald Trump's 2003 Miss Universe pageant, is the latest beauty queen to make ugly headlines on the heels of Mess USA Tara Conner's rehab stint. In December, Miss Nevada Katie Rees was stripped of her crown after racy photos surfaced of her kissing other women and exposing herself. Last month, Miss New Jersey Ashley Harder resigned from her throne after getting knocked up. Who's next?

either she really doesnt want to be found or human traffickers could be holding her at gunpoint and forcing her to say she's ok

She can hardly be counted as a "runaway" if she's 24. She's not underage. She has broken no laws. As soon as she realised people were searching for her, she properly contacted authorities to calm down the situation. This was reported by the BBC days and days ago. TMZ, you're sadly behind the times.

Where's the scandal? She decided to move to London and chose not have further contact with her parents who she obviously must have had a bad relationship with. Wouldn't be surprised if there had been some kind of abuse. After all, she is a very attractive woman.

Leave her alone. Her reign ended three years ago. She owes nothing to anyone and has the right to be with (or not be with) anyone she wants. This was a bullsh*t post and a waste of space.
