ST. GEORGE — A husband and wife who went missing from their home in Littlefield, Arizona, in early January have yet to be found, but family, friends and law enforcement are still actively searching.

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office lists Jerry and Susan McFalls, both 63, as missing and possibly endangered. The pair has not been heard from since Jan. 11.

A welfare check and subsequent search of their home in Littlefield by Mohave County Sheriff’s Office did not turn up any leads. The couple’s vehicles, pets, phones, money and other personal items were found undisturbed at the home.

“There are no recent developments at this time; however, detectives are still hopeful that the couple will be found, as this is still labelled a missing persons investigation,” Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Specialist Anita Mortensen told St. George News Monday.

In the months since their disappearance, family members of the McFalls have been conducting regular public searches in the vast desert surrounding the home.

As those numerous searches have yet to pinpoint Jerry and Susan McFalls, a private group is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to their recovery or information leading to the arrest and conviction of persons found responsible for their disappearance.

“The search response has been amazing from everyone,” Meridee McFalls, the couple’s dauther-in-law, said. “The love and support is definitely appreciated. That is what keeps us going day to day. Lots of people we don’t even know have reached out to help search and continue to search even without coordinated efforts.”

Any future searches will be announced on a Facebook page set up by the family.

Any information about the whereabouts of Jerry and Susan McFalls should be directed to Mohave County Sheriff’s Office by calling 928-753-0753.

    I’ll take that $5,000.

    Jerry and Susan McFalls have left us. They have moved on. They are sitting on a beach somewhere, or maybe in the mountains. Perhaps they’re just touring the country.

    No one wants to rape them, and I say that with the least intent to insult possible. Also, one would think that if someone had a deadly grudge against one or the other of these 63-year-olds, it’d be known to the family by now. So unless they’re rich, which doesn’t seem to be the case, that pretty much rules out foul play.

    Yes folks, these birds have flown. They are living out their golden years without you. Or me. Please send my 5 large care of this newspaper.

    NickDanger, have you no compassion at all?

    • NickDanger March 13, 2018 at 4:54 pm

      Of course I have compassion. I’m just saying what needs to be said. What do you think happened? You think these two were abducted? Sorry but I can’t see a possible motive for abducting a late-middle aged couple – unless it’s to hold them for ransom, which didn’t happen. You think they died in the desert? Sounds like folks who know them and likely know the best places to look have been searching the desert for two months now.

      All I’m saying is it sounds to me like these two probably hopped a jet somewhere sporting cheap sunglasses, cargo shorts, Hawaiian shirts, and holding two one-way tickets. Is that so surprising? You don’t think there are people who get sick and tired of their friends and family? Au contraire, Chief, happens all the time. Most people ride it out. But now and then, someone takes the leap and decides to go live the life they always wanted to.

      I’m convinced that a very high percentage of “missing” elderly people are hardly missing their families at all.

      And frankly, I find my speculation here far more interesting, realistic, and happy than anyone else’s.

        Frankly, that sounds wonderful. Until anyone knows for sure what happened, ND gives a peaceful visual.

          yep he does. people are overreacting to the extreme. My theory is an insurance fraud scheme, but time will tell.

    YOU ARE sick… Check yourself in somewhere, we all see it and you don’t/can’t. YOU need to move on………

      You talking to me? (adopts Robert DeNiro pose)

      I assume you are, Planet. Please consult your reality paradigm. I am talking about reality. You are talking about something else.
