    2 Months And Still No Sign Of Missing Retired Texas Firefighter

    May 10, 2017

    It’s been exactly two months since retired Dallas firefighter Michael Chambers went missing and investigators still have no leads or answers as to what happened to him or where he is.

    Quinlan police and Hunt County Sheriff’s Office investigators say they work on the case daily and have even brought in Texas Equusearch, a search and recovery organization based out of Dickinson, to look for the 70-year-old man.

    [...]

    Chambers was last seen on Friday March 10. Investigators say security camera footage from a local Walmart appears to show him at the store that same day, but his movements and whereabouts after are pretty much unknown.


    Family won't give up on missing retired Dallas firefighter in Hunt County

    July 28, 2017

    It’s been 20 agonizing weeks without answers for Suzy Losoya.

    She’s a daughter left in limbo, wondering what happened to her father, Michael Chambers. He’s the retired Dallas firefighter who disappeared from his Quinlan home on March 10.

    [...]

    The family recently hired a private investigator hoping that he can help them solve the riddle of what happened to Chambers.

    [...]

    “My greatest fear is that someone has killed my father and has literally gotten away with murder. That's my worst fear,” she says. “I'm convinced this was a crime. I do not think this is just a missing person.”

    MOD NOTE - PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING IN THIS CASE

    It took much longer than I expected to clean up the threads in this case because, quite frankly, the threads were a total mess. There were too many TOS violations to count, bickering, rumors, unapproved sources, discussion of moderation, and the list goes on.

    I spoke with Tricia and we seriously considered leaving the threads locked indefinitely and not opening a new thread.

    However, all missing people deserve to be found and Michael Chambers does not deserve to have his case forgotten simply because some WS members choose not to follow simple rules.

    So we are opening a new thread now for Mr. Chambers. Although this is Thread #5, we'd like all of you to think of it as a starting over point for this case.

    Please take note of the following:

    TOS and WS rules will be strictly enforced from this point onward. You have been warned. Expect a TO or worse if you choose not to follow the rules of this forum and of this case.

    NO ONE has been named a POI or a suspect in Michael's disappearance. Do not sleuth Michael's sons, grandchildren, neighbors, or friends. DO NOT accuse anyone of killing Michael. Do not imply or insinuate that any of Michael's family members murdered him.

    If you don't have either a link from mainstream media or law enforcement or a post from one of the Verified Insiders in this case, think long and hard before you post something as fact.

    DO NOT tell people to "google" something when they ask for a link. That is a TOS violation. If someone asks for a link, provide it. I don't care if you think they are being lazy or not. Just provide the link.

    There are no approved FB pages in this case except for official mainstream media FB pages and official LE pages. The Bring PaPaw Home FB page is a closed group on FB and is, per TOS, NOT approved to mention here or to discuss in any capacity.

    Per discussion with Tricia regarding the facts of this case, we are going to allow limited discussion of MC's wife, BC. You must use her initials when discussing her unless you are a Verfied Insider. Limited means limited. Do NOT accuse BC of murdering her husband. You may discuss verified information regarding her actions since her husband disappeared. If these rules are not followed, this thread will likely be shut down again.

    Finally, after reading through 4 threads, I would like to make the following request and suggestion as you continue to sleuth this case:

    1. Please create a case map, Michael was seen on surveillance camera at a Walmart. I would like to see a map showing the location of the Walmart and the location of Michael's home. Additionally, if there are any confirmed areas that have been searched by LE or the family, those could be put on the case map.

    2. Please put together a timeline of the day Michael disappeared using the information from mainstream media and from the Verified Insiders in this case. Even if the information is incomplete, it may help sleuth this case.

    Once these are created, I can pin them to the top of future threads. This is something we typically do in missing people cases.

    Hey Everyone,

    Liltexan's has literally spent hours and hours over the last few days cleaning up the past threads. I told her to forget about it. The threads were so bad, so filled with everything we are not supposed to do on Websleuths, I felt we should just pull them from view for good.

    However, Liltexan's felt there was enough good information, especially from our Verified Insiders that it was worth her time and effort to clean up the threads.

    Thank you, LT for your time and hard work. You are a dedicated and much-loved moderator. Thank you!

    There is a very good reason why we are so strict on Facebook. Facebook does not verify anything people post. It all depends on if the admin is willing to watch a thread and remove the outlandish accusations people make on all of these true crime Facebook groups. Not just Michael's.

    Once you post some really stupid rumor from Facebook to Websleuths it literally can take seconds before that rumor is being told as "fact". Then Websleuths looks stupid for allowing these ridiculous accusations to stand.

    There is a very good reason why Websleuths is considered reliable. It is because we don't do what Facebook does along with a ton of other true crime discussion forums, we do not allow a rumor to take hold as a fact and screw up the whole discussion.

    Most of you have been wonderful and I thank you for that. It is a handful of people who are violating Websleuths TOS and those people will be gone if they do it one more time.

    Remember this thread is not about you. It's not about your opinion that you have the right to tell others they need to Google things. This thread is not about why you are right and why you should be allowed to post whatever thing we are not allowing you to post.

    None of these things have anything to do with Michael's disappearance.

    Before you post something ask yourself "Is this post more about me?" If the answer is YES then do not hit "Submit Reply" on your post. Pull back and rewrite your post so it doesn't' look like you are talking about you and making this thread about you.

    Sorry to be harsh but Michael and his loved ones deserve to be treated with respect and his case deserves to be discussed in a way that is helpful, not harmful.

    Thank you,
    Tricia

    The circumstances surrounding the disappearance of retired Dallas firefighter Michael Chambers will be the topic of a future episode of the ID (Investigation and Discovery) channel's "Disappeared."

    Sheriff Randy Meeks of the Hunt County Sheriff's Office announced Friday that executives with NBC (with which the ID channel is affiliated) had contacted the sheriff's office several months ago saying they were interested in producing an episode about Chambers' disappearance, and that the production team had been shooting recreated scenes in several locations in the Quinlan area this past week.

    As of now, there is no tentative air date for the episode.

    NBC/Peacock Productions, affiliated with the Investigation Discovery channel, have produced a television episode about the case of Michael Chambers. Chambers, 70, was reportedly last seen March 10 of 2017 on a surveillance camera in the Quinlan Wal-Mart. Officials believe he disappeared from a home in the 7000 block of FM 2101.

    They did and nothing was found. I know it was posted in an earlier thread but hate to admit, I'm terrible at being able to find and link older WS posts. The link I just posted is from Texasequusearch's offical website, so I hope and pray that link is allowed, even though it's not official LE or an official media page? If not allowed, I apologize! This particular case has haunted me like no other this past year, and I appreciate your efforts more than you can know, liltexan.

    Yes, linking to Texas Equusearch's page is perfectly fine.

    I've been rereading the previous Chambers' threads in order to refresh my memory, and perhaps jog something loose in my thinking and begin anew with the case.

    I haven't a clue how to construct a case map, but hoping others with more expertise than I might jump in.
    I don't know if our VIs look in on Papaw's thread anymore, but if so, could we possibly have update in the most general of terms, even if it's to inform there is absolutely nothing new ? At the least, I'm assuming the PI firm is still working on it, and if there is anything concrete we can do here, please let us know.

    It's almost one entire year since MC went missing. I'm certain it's a gut-wrenching "anniversary" for his family and friends, but hoping for follow-up media reports that could shake something loose.

    According to PaPaw’s daughter, Suzy, there will be a story on Channel 8 tonight at 6:00, and Channel 4, she believes, at 5:00. Will ETA with links to the stations’ websites.
