New evidence has surfaced on the whereabouts of the disappearance of the McStay family, suggesting they may have planned to intentionally disappear in Mexico, authorities said.
Joseph McStay, his wife, Summer and two children went missing on Feb. 4. According to authorities a surveillance tape from a neighbor’s house shows the family leaving that night. Then their Izuzu Trooper was found four days later in San Ysidro near the Mexican border. Since then, aerial drones have been dispatched, flyers have been distributed and authorities work tirelessly to find the missing family.
“I’ve never seen anything like this in over 35 years of experience in the business,” said Lt. Dennis Brugos of the San Diego San Diego Sheriff’s department. According to the department the family apparently left voluntarily to Mexico.
According to McStay’s brother, Michael, the new leads change the entire scenery of the family’s disappearance. “The San Diego sheriff’s department told me they found evidence that dated to Jan. 28 on their computer,” he said. “Someone used their computer visited About.com to find out how to get the kids into Mexico without passports.”
Susan Blake, McStay’s mother, said she had a sense something was wrong before the family vanished. “Joe told me he wasn’t feeling good that day,” she said. “His equilibrium wasn’t right and I felt that something was wrong.”
Michael is also determined to find his brother, no matter what the cost is. “If I have to sell my business, I’ll do it,” he said. “I’ll go down to Mexico myself and find them if I have to.”
The FBI has also joined forces with the sheriff’s department and will be briefed on Friday.
