    AZ - Shaun Searle, 28, Tucson, 5 June 2012


    TUCSON, AZ Jun 18, 2013 7:32 PM EDT
    (Tucson News Now) -
    It's been a year and two weeks since Shaun Michael Searle went missing.

    It was June 5th, 2012 when the 28-year-old Searle stepped out of his mother's midtown home and continued to walk down East Elm street.

    He hasn't been seen since.

    By her own admission, Shaun Michael's mother knew her son had some real demons.

    For years, he struggled with drugs and depression, Penny Searle says.

    But on the afternoon of June 5th, 2012, Searle said something seemed very different.

    "I've seen him paranoid before, but this time he was very terrified," she says, recalling that day one year ago. "He said he had got involved with some people the night before, some very bad people. And they were going to kill him."

    That night -- between 11 PM and midnight -- Shaun Michael walked away, never to be heard from again.

    Due to his state of mind and frequent drug abuse, one of the theories is that he killed himself.

    But just 15 minutes after Shaun Michael left, his mother says a stranger showed up looking for him.

    She'd never seen this man before.

    But says he was very interested in knowing the whereabouts of her son.

    The next night the same man showed up again, never making any threats toward anyone but definitely making his presence known.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Sadly, we never have very much follow up on bodies found or murders somedays. It's our news out here. Frustrates and baffles me to no end. This article comes to mind but will check for other news around the time Shaun disappeared.

    Two bodies that were found after Shaun went missing in 2012, in Dec. 2012. I'll check to see if any follow up has been done but it's not broadcasted across the social media world much here. I feel lucky to get a follow up from our local MSM sources most days.

    I did find this article dated July 30th, 2012.

    The missing man has a medical condition, but Hawke did not disclose what it is, citing privacy concerns.

    "Information was received that he might be suicidal," she said.

    It goes onto say he had no activity on his bank account or cards. He had two warrants on misdemeanor cases pending.

    He was last seen between the U of A area & downtown Tucson. There are some tough areas in there. Anything could have happened to him. I'll keep searching. 500 E. Elm Street.

    Looking at the neighborhood where he disappeared, I don't think anything good happened. While it is not as bad as it was in the 1980s and early 1990s, that's a drug neighborhood, especially that far west of 1st Ave and north of Speedway. Heroin. Crack. Probably meth, too. Police helicopters all the time.

    I lived at 1st and Waverly many years ago, when I was a student at U of A. The front door of our duplex pulled out of the frame, because the previous tenants had been raided by TPD. Strangers knocked on our door often trying to sell us stolen goods or drugs. The now-closed Circle K at 1st and Lester had crack dealers come try to sell to anyone who stopped at the stop sign.

    If Shaun was headed west, he was going to even worse areas. Rundown motels full of dealers. Working girls on Drachman and Stone. Strip clubs that catered to drug dealers on Oracle and Miracle Mile.

    I just hope they find his remains someday, so his mom can have peace. I don't think he's still with us.
