Family Member Suspected In Disappearance Of 87-Year-Old Kansas Woman And Her 65-Year-Old Son

PLEASANTON, Kan. – 2 individuals, an 87-year-old woman and her 65-year-old son, are missing and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation detectives are in search of them.

Authorities believed that they both are the victims of foul play.

The investigators found a few proofs of the crime as they went to their home in Pleasanton. The clues took the investigators to the Marais Des Cygnes River where a dive team and a cadaver dog were looking on Monday.

The family members of the victims reported them missing on Friday and Saturday; the Linn County Sheriff’s office took one individual of the family into custody for investigation.

The person in custody of the police is expected to be charged with the following crimes:

  • Second-degree murder
  • Criminal desecration of a body
  • Felony interference with law enforcement

According to the neighbor, Kay Wilkerson, “I heard from my neighbor. She had been in the McNabb home and had seen all the police crime scene and she told me what had happened. I was just shocked, overwhelmed.” She said that she is in contact with the family since from the past many years and she is worried about them.

The following departments have collaborated for an investigation of the case:

  • Overland Park Police
  • The Crawford County Sheriff’s office
  • Kansas Dept. of Wildlife and Parks
  • Kansas Highway Patrol
