Skip to comments.Missing Michigan Family: Couple With 4-Month-Old Baby Disappear
Posted on 03/07/2012 8:39:34 AM PST by nuconvert
Authorities and family members are searching for clues in the disappearance of a Michigan couple and their child. Timothy Medsker, 33, and Sabrina Medsker, 34, vanished with their 4-month-old son Joshua without any warning. They were last seen at a birthday party for their niece and their last phone call was placed on Feb. 16.
The young couple has a successful cleaning business with strong ties to the small Michigan town of Petoskey.
Despite attempts to track them down the family and police haven't heard from them at all. "This is 100 percent out of character and very concerning," said Kelly Manthei, Timothy Medsker's sister.

Video says they left in the middle of packing....packing for what?
Thanks for the post; ping.
It sounds like just about all their belongings were in the house
IF they are still alive (I praythey are), then they are living off the grid.
And with an infant - that is hard to do.
Entire families missing are very odd, not too long ago a family in OK and one in CA disappeared. No word on any of those cases that I have heard.
“The young couple has a successful cleaning business...”
Dry cleaning or house cleaning business... irregardless of which, maybe they saw something they should not have seen. Hopefully, they are protected and in a secret witness program rather than being taken out.
My 1st thought was that they were abducted at gunpoint.
A lot of details missing from the story.
We don’t know if there’s any $ missing from their business or personal bank accts
Not a bad idea.
Hopefully they are safe and prospering somewhere off the grid.
From the article “Police believe they [are] likely traveling in their silver 2010 Ford f-150 pickup.”
I ask here, as I asked with the Susan Smith case: why haven’t they found the vehicle?
In the Smith case it turned out she had driven it into that lake (or whatever it was).
People are easy to disappear, cars not so much.
Or they were involved in something illegal(drugs). Let's not forget the Powell case either. The guy could have killed his wife and is on the run with the baby.
In many of these cases one person in the family is up to no good.
In the late seventies, a gentleman from Butler, MI (Calhoun Cnty) turned up missing in the winter. Turns out missed a curve on snowy roads and went through the ice of an abandoned quarry.
They didn’t find him until late summer because a doctor in Albion reported a case of giardia to the County Health Service. That giardia was contracted by my wife when we went swimming in the quarry one day in July.
I used to go to the races at Butler speedway every weekend. Litchfield road is dead straight most of the way but every other road in the area is curvy as hell.
Had to map it to recall. We called it Clarendon pond. As you come from Homer, you cut thru on 22.5 and connect with P Drive. P Dr. connects with 22 Mile and goes straight into Butler.
Clarendon Pond is at the turn of P Dr. and 22.5...he missed. Got real cold that night and the pond-surface was “healed” at the crash site. Fresh snow covered the tire tracks. (Agatha Christie, that one!).
They determined him to be a bit sotted. He closed Bernie’s Bar in downtown Homer (Ask for the Bernie Burger...great burger!).
I’ll go you one better...I know where a BlueBird Short bus is buried and waiting for me to retire! /prepper
The Delta 88 is probably rusted away by now. It was the result of one of my idiot friends trashing the car his uncle gave him and not wanting his uncle to see it.
We had lots of energy at 19 or 20 years old and dug that hole by hand. It was a hell of a hole.
