Where is the Stivers family?

Ashland parents, their kids and two in-laws are missing on a coastal outing

March 14, 2006
Mail Tribune

ASHLAND — When Marlo Stivers’ in-laws drove their motor home from Arizona to Ashland, the family thought it was the perfect reason to take a day trip and visit the Pacific coast.

With husband Pete Stivers and their two children — 9-year-old Sabastyan and 8-year-old Gabrayell — Marlo Stivers said her goodbyes before heading off March 4 in a large motor home owned by her in-laws, Albert and Becky Higgenbothem.

"She was all excited," recalled Marlo Stivers’ mother, Ashland resident Rose Hill. "She had never seen the ocean before."

Family members and police have seen no trace of those six people and the motor home, and the family’s bank accounts and cell phones have not been used, said police, who Monday ramped up the family’s missing-person’s case.

"It’s suspicious to me," Ashland police Sgt. Bob Smith said. "They’ve missed a week now. They have access to a bank account and there hasn’t been any activity there.

"There’s enough there to make me wonder," Smith said.

Marlo Stivers, 31, and her 29-year-old husband have jobs and ties to Ashland, while friends and family members say the couple was under no strife and showed no signs of using the trip as a ruse for fleeing Ashland.
Fearful family members hope the extended family is stranded somewhere in the motor home, waiting for someone to find them.

"I’m trying to believe the best," Rose Hill said. "I know my daughter. She would get hold of me. She wouldn’t just take off like this. But I just can’t imagine someone not seeing them or them not being able to get to a phone."

Hill reported Marlo Stivers as missing late Wednesday to Ashland police, who issued an all-points bulletin to other law-enforcement agencies, police said.

The bulletin turned up no potential sightings, and Ashland police added Pete Stivers and the two children to the missing persons’ list Sunday while family members launched their personal search of the backroads and campgrounds in western Curry County.

Seward said both were due paychecks the day before they left, a move she believes discounts any notion that the family planned to leave Ashland under the ruse of a day trip.

Marlo Stivers works at an Ashland video store and Pete Stivers works at an Ashland convenience store, said Char Seward, Marlo Stivers’ close friend, neighbor and co-worker at DJ’s Video.

"When she left, she gave me a normal hug," Seward says. "It was an ‘I love you’ hug like we always do, not like ‘this was goodbye forever.’ "

There were no family troubles or other problems facing the Stivers, other than a dispute with a neighbor of theirs in the Takelma Village apartments near the Ashland Police Department, Seward said.

Seward said Elbert Higgenbothem told her that the motor home had some steering problems that he planned to fix before the trip.

"I was worried that first (Sunday) night and with each passing day, I get more worried," Seward said.

At this point, Smith said he is more concerned about the missing people’s welfare than why they remain eight days overdue from an overnight trip.

"I want somebody to spot the vehicle, spot these folks and make sure a law-enforcement officer can determine they’re OK," Smith said.

The brown-and-white Dolphin motor home is 35 feet long and has Arizona plates, Smith said.

Anyone with information about the missing people’s whereabouts is urged to call Ashland police at 482-5211.

'I Want Answers," Missing Lee County Woman's Mother Says

'I Want Answers," Missing Lee County Woman's Mother Says

HARNETT COUNTY, N.C. -- The mother of a missing Lee County woman is on the offensive with investigators, saying not enough is being done to find her daughter.

"I'm angry, I'm frustrated, I want answers, and I'm not receiving them," said Karen Riojas, the mother of Michelle Bullard. "This is Day 74 of this nightmare."

Authorities said Bullard, 23, went missing in the early-morning hours of Jan. 2 after her friends reported that she was taken at gunpoint during a home invasion in Lee County.

During a news conference called by Harnett County Sheriff Larry Rollins on Tuesday, Riojas peppered the sheriff with questions about the investigation and what was being done to find her daughter.

Calling the investigation one of the two most frustrating cases he has had recently, Rollins, for the most part, said he just did not have many answers, but assured the public and Riojas that investigators are doing the best they can.

Although Bullard was apparently reported missing in Lee County, the search for her has spanned across three counties, including Harnett and Cumberland.

Authorities said that volunteers searching for clues in the case discovered Bullard's wallet and license on a rural road in Cumberland County, near the residence of the family of David Wilson, who killed himself the same day Bullard went missing.

Investigators had been interested in Wilson, who shot himself in the chest when Harnett County authorities approached him, because they said he loosely fit the description of the alleged home invasion assailant and because he may have been on the same surveillance video as Bullard that night before her disappearance.

Rollins, however, reiterated Tuesday that Wilson was not necessarily connected to Bullard's disappearance. He maintained that although there were many coincidences between the two cases, investigators have not been able to link them together.

Bullard is 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs about 125 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. A $10,000 reward is being offered to anyone who has information leading to her recovery.

Anyone with information that may help solve the case is urged to contact the Lee County Sheriff's Office at (919) 775-5531 or local law enforcement.

A&E documentary "Confrontation".

Woman Confronts her Father's Murderer

Des Moines, March 10th - If someone murdered one of your loved ones in cold blood, would you be able to speak to them? Would you want to? Next week a Des Moines woman's choice to have a conversation with her father's killer will be the subject of an A&E documentary.

"What were you thinking?" That's just one of the painful and jarring questions that came in and out of Jennifer Eaton's mind for about fourteen years after her father Ken was murdered as she slept in the next room of their West Des Moines apartment back in 1988.

So when one of the two men convicted of the murder asked to speak with her, she said yes. She met Gary Titus in 2001 at the Newton Correctional facility.

A&E is airing a story about victims meeting the criminals that harmed them. The piece is called "Confrontation".

Jennifer is hoping her story will help other victims deal with their pain and anger. Jennifer's story airs March 16th at 9pm on A&E.
