    TUSCARAWAS COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - A missing adult alert has been issued by the Tuscarawas County Sheriff's Office statewide. Officials are asking residents to be on the lookout for two missing adults.

    Crime scene investigators spent the day inside the couple's home on Bodmer Avenue, gathering evidence after Doyle and Lillian Chumney's daughter called police for help.

    "She advised us she was at her parent's home. The house had been ransacked. Her parents weren't there. Also, the car was missing," said Chief Bob Kutcher, of the Strasburg Police Department.

    TUSCARAWAS COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - A missing adult alert has been issued by the Tuscarawas County Sheriff's Office statewide. Officials are asking residents to be on the lookout for two missing adults.

    Crime scene investigators spent the day inside the couple's home on Bodmer Avenue, gathering evidence after Doyle and Lillian Chumney's daughter called police for help.

    "She advised us she was at her parent's home. The house had been ransacked. Her parents weren't there. Also, the car was missing," said Chief Bob Kutcher, of the Strasburg Police Department.
    There were no signs the house had been broken into. The couple was expected to pick up their son and take him to the airport, but never showed.

    Their garage door was left up, but neighbor Louisa Anne Withers says it's always that way. There was something else though, that didn't seem right to her last night.

    "It seemed unusual that the whole light in the kitchen was on. Generally, there must be a sink right there, and that light above the sink is on, but last night the whole kitchen was lit up," explained Withers.

    Investigators have said they don't think the couple left their home by their own free will.

    Neighbors are brought to tears now just looking at the house surrounded by police tape.

    "I feel so bad. I think something is wrong," added Withers as her voice trailed off.

    Doyle Chumney is described as a white male, age 88, 5'6" tall, weighs 150 lbs., has gray hair and brown eyes.

    Lillian Chumney is described as a white female, age 79, 5'2" tall, weighs 110 lbs., has gray hair and blue eyes.

    The vehicle involved is a cream 1986 Pontiac Parisienne with OH plate number EXF9647.

    Call or dial 911 if you see the adults or the vehicle.

    This doesn't look good. I hope by some miracle that they are alive and okay somewhere but I doubt it. Very, very sad.

    Why? Why would somebody kidnap pensioners?

    Burglary gone very wrong? Or somebody stands to make money from it?

    This is very sad. I wish they would share the reason the family immediately thought kidnapping. It looks as though they lived in a modest home and drove a 28 yo vehicle so I wonder what kidnappers thought they would gain. The only reason I can even imagine is maybe the daughter believed someone in the family may have profited something by taking them. Just strange.

    How awful and heartbreaking. May they rest in peace.

    I think the family suspected kidnapping immediately because of the condition of the house. I'm not sure though.

    Looking out her front door, Betty Menapace could see the yellow crime-scene tape that surrounded the home of her neighbors and friends, Doyle and Lillian Chumney.

    She watched as numerous police investigators entered and exited the two-story, white frame house in the 300 block of Bodmer Avenue on Wednesday.

    Police don’t know exactly what has happened to the Chumneys, except: They are missing.

    “In a small town like this, it’s scary,” said Menapace, as she reflected on what she was told by police, who interviewed her Wednesday.

    The disappearance of Doyle, age 88, and 79-year-old Lillian Chumney has prompted a nationwide search for the couple — and their car.

    Village Police Chief Robert Kutcher said the Chumneys' house appears to have been ransacked, and police believe the couple were taken against their will.

    The crime is believed to have occurred sometime between 11:15 p.m. Tuesday and 6 or 7 a.m. Wednesday.

    The couple’s disappearance has Menapace extremely concerned for their safety and about their unknown whereabouts.

    Regarding the Chumneys, Menapace said, “They’re very nice people, lovely people. You just
