In September of 2011 a 79 year-old woman and
her physically disabled son went missing and Tyler County investigators are
still searching for answers.
While officials continue
to narrow down theories they're reaching out to the public for any information.
"Its kind of like a chess game you
have to make a move when you need to make a move, get the info when you can get
the information," said A.R. Bud Sturrock, Chief Investigator, Tyler County
Lettie and John Fisher Jr. were last seen
September 19th, 2011 before going fishing at Magnolia Ridge Park.
"It was never reported until the
22nd because its not unusual for a vehicle to be parked in different areas of
the park two or three days at a time," said Sturrock.
Investigators say they know the
Fishers went home to change clothes before going fishing but no fishing
equipment was ever found."
"None of the fishing equipment was
located after multiple searches in the creek and park area of Magnolia Ridge
which is highly unusual," said Sturrock.
Chief Investigator A.R. Bud Sturrock
says several sightings have been reported Lufkin, Arkansas, Louisiana and Missouri.
Officials continue to follow leads and narrow down theories that could possibly
close the case.
"Its a two theory case as far as
active theories that are leading us to where we think something may develop
that would possibly cause us to be closure to it," said Sturrock.
Investigators say with each day that
passes there is less of a chance they will return home.
But that won't stop them from finding
"You never know what may come up,
what may develop the next day that we can follow-up on and put closure, this
case will be active forever," said Sturrock.
Investigators are urging the public to call the Polk or
Tyler County Sheriff's Office with any information about the case.
