LITTLEFIELD, Ariz., Jan. 24, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — A search is underway for a couple from West Jordan who have been missing out of Littlefield, Ariz., for the past two weeks.

Jerry McFalls Sr. and Susan McFalls, both 62, were last heard from Jan. 11, according to a news release on Facebook from the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office.

Family members stated the McFalls were due to travel back to Utah to take care of some business after being in Arizona for Christmas. They have homes both in Littlefield and in West Jordan. Littlefield is close to the border of Arizona, and 10 miles away from Mesquite, Nev.

The Sheriff’s Office is actively investigating the pair’s disappearance, listing both individuals  on a BOLO (Be on the Lookout For) poster as having disappeared under “suspicious circumstances.” The couple has been entered into the FBI’s National Crime Information Center’s missing and endangered database.

Mohave County Sheriff’s detectives conducted a search of the McFalls’ Littlefield residence early Tuesday morning, looking for any information that would lead them to the whereabouts of the couple, the news release said. Sheriff’s detectives used search dogs from Washington County Search and Rescue, as well as numerous volunteers to search the area around the residence.

“Both phones belonging to the victims, as well as guns, money, medications, identifications and family pets, were found inside the residence,” the news release said. “Family members have been contacted and still have not heard from the McFalls. The couple’s vehicles and keys were found at the residence and there were no obvious signs of foul play.”

Due to the heavy recent rains in the area, no obvious evidence was located on the exterior of the property, the news release added. A canvas of the area was conducted by the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and no further information was developed.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Detective Division at 800-522-4312.
