Eric Stapleton, a resident of Quartzsite reported missing 2 weeks ago, is still missing.
According to comments written on Parker Live by Stapleton’s family members, Eric is partially disabled, making it seemingly unlikely that he would go off walking by himself. And yet, his cell phone, car and other personal belongings have been left behind at his house, and the front door was discovered lying open.
“Eric Stapleton is my uncle and I am the caregiver for Eric’s 87 year old mother. He is her youngest child, her baby boy,” says Jennifer Steinmetz. “Eric is a very special man who always has a twinkle in his eye. He has a big family that love him very much. We just can’t believe this has happened. How can someone vanish without a trace?”
