This is the note Brian left 8 hours ago~
I wanted to write this note to say goodbye to a certain few that need to know what happened to me. I have #ed up my life again to the point of no return this time. I am homeless, jobless, and pennyless. I have 2 wonderful daughters who deserve a lot better than what I can give them, and deserve better in life than what I would ever be able to give them. I love them both very much and this goes out ot them the most. I am sorry daddy is such an extreme #up. I could never get my crap together and you both deserve better then this. I love you both very much and will always be there to see your acomplishments in life.
Because I know you will both do amazing things. You both will probably never know the amount of love I have for you two and that is my fault. I have been an extreme mess for almost all of my 36 years on this earth and enough is enough. I have lied, stolen, and done some other really bad things, but the one thing I can say I did right was bringing you two into the world. I love you both babies and will miss you SO MUCH!!! I have not seen or talked to you both in over a week and it has killed me more and more every day.
I am in a deep depression and know I will not come out of it. As for you Michelle, I know now more than ever that I was in the wrong for 90 percent of the 7 years you have known me. I don't know if you will ever read this, but if someone could pass this on to her it would be great. I can't call you because I am to afraid of what might be said as I know I can never have you back. You were my one true love. I realize that now more then ever. You were my soul mate and someone that I could have lived with forever. ANd to know I messed that up is to much for me to bare anymore.
You were my world, and I # all over you. I know it was wierd the way we met but I think it was fate that we did. I am SO SORRY that I messed things up like I did. Please forgive me one day. I wanted to give so much to you but in the end I couldn't even scrape two pennies together for you and that was the last straw. I love you Michelle, and I always will. Goodbye my love and goodbye my 2 darling babies. I will miss all 3 of you!!

Thinking back on early shows, I can remember the guys talking about him "going missing" before. Did minor research on it but came up with nothing, pretty sure it was in the earlier seasons when they was talking about it but I could be wrong.
Maybe this isn't a publicity stunt and it is obvious real feelings were coming through in the letter he wrote but I think this is how he deals with stuff and if he truly is going through a divorce this would be the next step in his normal behavior when stressed, not just going missing but threatening to go missing forever in attempt to gain sympathy from others.
Suicide may cross his mind and he may be flirting with the idea as he wrote but if he loves his children as much as he claims then suicide is not a viable option, fixing his life is.
Regardless, I still think he loves himself to much to opt out ...

Does anyone know if he has threatened something like this before?
yes I am a fan and enjoyed Brian but he has always seemed like a bit of a loose cannon where his emotions are concerned.Do you remember when he left the show the first time was because of an involvement with a woman and it became so toxic that his life just slipped away from being functional.
Rumors of suicidal intent On 9 December 2012 a message began circulating Facebook stating that Harnois was missing and had posted a suicide note on his Timeline.
According to a tweet by Michelle Harnois, wife of missing Brian Harnois, the Warwick police left her house at 8:49 p.m. on Dec. 9, and are still searching for Brian. Earlier reports indicated that Brian Harnois left a note that many interpret as a suicide note, on his Facebook account on the morning of Dec. 9. No one has heard from or seen him since.
Rumors that Brian Harnois has split with his wife and may have been depressed over the failure of his marriage seem to be confirmed by Michelle Harnois’ recent tweets to Brian telling him their daughter cried herself to sleep because she couldn’t wish him a happy birthday. Another tweet dated Dec. 6, indicated that Michelle had not seen Brian Harnois for 6 days. Despite any personal differences the couple may experience, Michelle Harnois says she is very worried that he is in danger.
