WILSON, N.Y. (WIVB)- Authorities are searching for answers after a Western New York native disappeared more than a week ago in Kingman, Arizona.

Sidney Cranston Jr. went missing on June 16. Now, his family in Wilson, NY is trying to piece together what happened.

“I can’t imagine why he would’ve gotten abducted like this,” said Sid Cranston, his father. “He didn’t really have any enemies.”

Cranston said the Kingman Police Department hasn’t given the family much information since his son’s disappearance.

“They’re keeping us really in the dark,” said Cranston.

His 40-year-old son is in the real estate business and went missing a day after one of his properties was burglarized.

“He went to show the house, he walked in the house, and there’s the hot water heater, carpeting rolled up on the floor,” said Cranston.

His son stayed at the home overnight to make sure the burglars didn’t return and talked to his father on the phone the following morning at 11:00 a.m.

Hours later, at 4:00 p.m., Sid Cranston Jr. missed an appointment, which his father said is unusual.

Police have been looking for him ever since.

“They had 500 square miles of area to search because of all of the properties my son owns out there and then they didn’t even get them all,” said Cranston.

Cranston told News 4, his other son Chris went to the home four days later and found the burglars had returned, taking everything including the toilets.

The family has now hired a private investigator to find Sid Cranston Jr.

They’ve created a GoFundMe account to help pay for the investigation. They’ve raised nearly $4,000.
