JOSHUA MEDSKER - 4 Months (and his Father and Mother, Timothy and Sabrina) - Petoskey MI

Post by TomTerrific0420 on Thu Mar 08, 2012 3:21 am

Authorities and family members are searching for clues in the disappearance of a Michigan couple and their child.

Timothy
Medsker, 33, and Sabrina Medsker, 34, vanished with their 4-month-old
son Joshua without any warning. They were last seen at a birthday party
for their niece and their last phone call was placed on Feb. 16.

The
young couple has a successful cleaning business with strong ties to the
small Michigan town of Petoskey. Despite attempts to track them down,
the family and police haven't heard from them.

"This is 100 percent out of character and very concerning," said Kelly Manthei, Timothy Medsker's sister.

Police
searched the home a second time this week and took computers and
personal papers to look for clues about what happened to the family, but
so far there have been no leads.

Nothing seemed out of the ordinary. The couple even talked about attending a baby shower this weekend.

"All
of their personal belongings were there including clothing, computers,
food, paperwork -- it looked like something spooked them," said Petoskey
Detective David Schultz.

"Anytime we have a missing person or
someone who can't be contacted usually in a small town like this a few
phone calls and we know where there at, but obviously now almost going
on three weeks this is not the case," said Schultz.

The family worries that there's something more to this story.

Police believe they left by choice and are likely traveling in their silver 2010 Ford F-150 pickup.

Yes SAFE

A Michigan family who vanished from their home nearly a month ago is alive and well, authorities told FoxNews.com.

Timothy Medsker, 33, his wife Sabrina Medsker, 34, and their 4-month old son Joshua, were reported missing from their Petoskey home on Feb. 23, a week after they failed to appear for several appointments.

Petoskey Department of Public Safety Det. David Schultz said Tim Medsker called his sister Wednesday afternoon and said he and his family were fine, but offered no explanation as to why they left their home and did not divulge their whereabouts.

"Timothy and Sabrina are very private people and it seems the media pressure made them come forward," Schultz said early Thursday. "They said that they're fine and that they don't want to have any more communication."

The couple will not face any charges and police now consider the case closed. Although authorities do not know the couple's exact location, they are confident the family is safe, Schultz said.

"Our only job was to assist the family, locate them and check on their well-being," he said.

Medsker's sister, Kelly Manthei, told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Wednesday that her brother was very reliable and never missed appointments. She told ClickonDetroit.com that she contacted authorities immediately after receiving a call from her brother Wednesday afternoon. The family gave no reason as to why the family abruptly left their home without warning, she told the website.

"He does have a different way of thinking than maybe you and I would, so maybe he feels with the economy being as bad as it is, that he needed to leave," she said. "I honestly, I'm not sure."

Authorities had not believed foul play was involved in the case.

They believed the family -- which ran a successful commercial cleaning business -- left the area by choice, but left behind sizable amounts of food, toiletries and other everyday items.

"There's nothing in the home that looks like a crime scene," Schultz said early Wednesday. "But something scared them enough to leave in a hurry. It looked like they packed up and left in a hurry."

Schultz said the couple's finances were not believed to be a concern, as their bills were all up to date.

"They had a very successful small business in town cleaning offices and businesses," he said.

The couple worked long hours and was known to be "very private," Schultz said.
