    MO - Russell, 34, & Rebecca Porter, 46, Willard, 17 April 2011

    Forty-six year old Rebecca and 34-year old Russell were last seen Sunday evening. The family believes the disappearance is 'suspicious' in nature, considering security cameras inside and outside the house were damaged and destroyed. The house also smelled like bleach, according to relatives.

    "I think they got abducted, kidnapped, or something because her property's in there, her purse and phone. The doors were wide open and that's just not our baby sister," explained Darrel Hufft, Rebecca's brother.

    Through Tuesday, investigators searched the couple's house on Highway HH and surrounding properties. They combed through a vehicle and a dumpster, gathering clues.

    As deputies expand their search, worried loved ones are broadening their own efforts. They'll soon begin posting missing-persons fliers across the Ozarks.

    [Rebecca Porter's brother Darrell] Hufft says the couple had security cameras because they lived in the country and Russell's uncle, who lives next door, "Has been giving 'em some problems. Somebody obviously knew those security cameras were there because they're broke off."

    "I believe they have some ties to the Branson, Galena, Stone County area," Arnott said. The sheriff would not say if tips are leading them in that direction.

    Hufft says the couple was arguing with family members that live just up the road. One of those family members did leave the scene with detectives but the sheriff says it was only for questioning."

    According to Missouri Casenet, Mr Russell was served an order of protection on 4/7. Several other entries as well ranging from possession of controlled substance to domestic assault (last year, 7 year SIS, 5 years probation).

    Doesn't bode well for Mrs. Russell.

    I don't find this too unusual as I have cameras inside and outside my house. I initially got the one in my living room to focus on my electronics because my house has been broken into 3 times since I have lived there (18 years). As I suspected that it was related to kin of my next door neighbors, I added the outside cameras so I could keep an eye on anyone entering my yard.

    So it may not mean anything...

    One Missing Link Organization Helping Out

    Now, family of the Porters have teamed up with Janis McCall and the organization "One Missing Link" to get the word out about the disappearance.

    McCall is the mother of Stacey McCall who went missing nearly two decades ago.

    The group began distributing fliers and hanging up missing-person posters notifying the public of the disappearance..

    "They don't know which way to go, so we're telling them where to search, where to put up the fliers," McCall says. "To not put them outside because they're just going to get rained on, I understand. So we put them inside buildings. So inside restaurants, hotels and things like that."

    "People also are baffled because his sister-in-law's Mustang left behind the house with the keys in the ignition is the couple's sole transportation, he said."

    ~~snip~~

    While his sister-in-law worked at Fantastic Caverns, "Rusty" Porter was disabled and spent a lot of time at the computer, Mike Porter said.

    Relatives said Russell Porter, 34, and Rebecca Porter, 46, have been married for less than one year.

    Investigators Bring in Canines to Help Search

    amily and friends remain committed to finding a couple missing since Sunday night.
    Russell and Rebecca Porter went missing from their home east of Willard. The Greene County Sheriff's Office continues to search the property surrounding their house; Thursday it was with the help of canines.

    A bloodhound could be seen circling the 120 acre Greene County farm, searching for any scent that could lead investigators to the missing couple. "The last time I saw my cousin, he was sitting on that porch with his laptop in his hands," says Tim Campbell, Rusty Porter's cousin and neighbor.
