    2 March 08

    Deputy Cmdr. Kent Bradburn, with the Navajo County Sheriff's Office, said Gina Tapley Saturday contacted family in Missouri. Her husband, Michael Tapley, has not been seen or heard from since the couple disappeared Feb. 15.

    Gina, 46, reportedly failed to provide her location Saturday when she talked with family members.

    Bradburn said investigators still want to find Gina because she could lead them to Michael.

    Thanks for the update, hoppy.

    This sounds strange indeed.

    Hope both of them are safe and sound where ever they may be.

    The Sheriff's Office reported that Michael Tapley, 52, and his wife Gina Tapley, 46, have been missing since Feb. 15. Family members did not hear from either until Gina contacted them March 1.

    "We have executed search warrants at the residence but didn't see anything that would indicate foul play," Deputy Commander K.C. Clark of Major Crimes Apprehension Team said. "The only thing we have is that the disappearances were mysterious. According to the family, it was out of the ordinary for them not to contact family members."

    Michael Tapley works for the Snowflake Unified School District but failed to report for work Feb. 18. He was last seen leaving work the previous weekend.

    As of March 5, Clark said, family members reported having seen Gina as well as hearing from her. Nothing had been heard from Michael as of that date.

    "We just don't have a starting point to look for him," Clark said. "We do have an attempt-to-locate on the vehicle and the couple sent to law enforcement agencies across the country."

    Anyone with information is asked to contact the Navajo County Sheriff's Office at (928) 524-4450 or the local sheriff's substation.

    (So what has Gina told family members? Has LE interviewed Gina? I wish there was more info about this. Hoppy)

    SAfter reading that link, I'd say LE needs to take a VERY close look at the wife, IMO.

    Interesting case, GiGi! Sounds like Gina has some explaining to do. OK What do we know about their prior situation? Let's get down to the brass tacks on this.

    AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"

    Missing Snowflake man Michael Tapley

    I live about half an hour away from the town that Michael went missing (Snowflake, AZ). I have talked to his sister Kim and she sent me a packet with information to post. I just posted 5 links to some of the information. I will be posting more in the next day.

    The family hasn't gotten much cooperation from authorities. They (LE) just don't seem to be interested in the case much. They went through the motions and gave up. Snowflake is a very small town and I believe the LE may not have enough experience to deal with this. LE from another county was involved in the search for a time because it was believed that Micheal may have been in that county. But it seems that if it is a missing man, it gets treated differently than a missing woman.?

    I urged Michaels sister Kim to let Websleuths help. You guys are better than any LE I know so please take a look at the case and ask any questions you have. If you pm me I will give you Kim's phone# and email and you can talk directly to her. I am available to go to the town of Snowflake or to the county for any information that any of you want or need to help solve this case. I will be posting more info asap (there were 3 Orders of Protection filed against Gina Tapley (Michael's wife) by her 3rd husband and one Order of Protection filed against Gina Tapley by Micheal (he was her 4th husband). I can't post these until I white out the SS#'s but will do asap.
    Thanks everyone for helping

    Justice for Michael Tapley
