LITTLEFIELD, Ariz. (News4Utah) – A Utah family is still searching for their missing parents and requesting the public’s help after the couple – Jerry and Susan McFalls – disappeared from their Littlefield, Arizona home near the Utah border.
Family says that when Police did a welfare check on January 21, they found a door of the home open, but keys, their dogs, and Susan’s purse were all inside. Their vehicles were in the driveway. The family has been looking ever since, desperate for answers in the search for Jerry and Susan McFalls, last heard from by family on January 11th.
“You don’t ever expect that this is going to happen to you or your family,” said their son Jerry McFalls.
“I miss you grandma and grandpa,” said 13-year-old Ethan McFalls.
“They’re more than just parents they’re best friends to me. We did everything together, Me and my old man owned a repair shop together for 30 years in Midvale,” said their son Jerry.
The Mohave County Sheriffs Office confirmed a search warrant was served at a neighboring property.
“A residence in Littlefield, they searched the residence of neighbors to the McFalls. They do believe the McFalls have disappeared under suspicious circumstances, so they are actively investigating their disappearance,” said Susan Callahan with the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office.
Family is also searching. Many helped over the weekend, and they’re hoping more volunteers will come.
“This is such a big vast area and there’s so many ravines and washes, it’s a big huge area, and we need help,” said daughter-in-law Meridee McFalls.
“If we could get somebody that owns a kayak, that would like to take a kayak down the virgin river, keep an eye on the banks, because that gorge is so deep,” said their son Jerry.
“We will be searching all next weekend. If you’ve got drones or horses, or ATV’s and if you’re in the area and can come help us search, we’re searching for our parents,” requested the family.
The family wants to share their gratitude for the support they’ve already received, and the many people that have already been out to search.
The family has set up a Facebook page to continue to share information and request help: Missing Help Find Susan and Jerry McFalls.
