Jerry and Susan McFalls split their time between two homes that they owned. One was in Littlefield, Arizona and the other was in West Jordan, Utah. Since they were retired, they spent most of the winter months at the Arizona property. On January 11, 2018, Susan texted her daughter-in-law, Meridee, letting her know they were going to be making the trip back to Utah that weekend. Jerry and Susan never made it back and were never seen again. When no one heard from them for several days, they began trying to track them down. They realized that no one had seen them during the time they planned to be in Utah. Meridee contacted law enforcement in Arizona to go check on them. A deputy went out to their home and all of their belongings, including vehicles, were there. Music was playing outside, the television was on, it appeared as though Susan was in the middle of cooking dinner. Despite many searches, no trace of Jerry and Susan has been found.
UPDATE: On October 18, 2018, two sets of remains were located near the Virgin River Gorge. On November 1, 2018, they were able to identify one of the sets of remains as belonging to Susan McFalls. The other set of remains is still pending identification.
There is currently a reward of $10,000 for information regarding the whereabouts of Jerry and Susan McFalls. If you have any information, please call the Mohave County Sheriff’s Department at 928-753-0753.
The family has also set up a Facebook page: Missing Help find Susan and Jerry McFalls and a website mcfallsmystery.com that provides a timeline and links to additional information on the disappearance of Jerry and Susan McFalls.
