A month passes with no sign of missing Atchison couple

October 13, 2009


— Atchison County authorities say they have no new leads in the search for an elderly couple who have been missing since Sept. 11.

The couple, 74-year-old Billie "Bob" Black and his 72-year-old wife, Mary Lou, was last seen driving away from their home.

An extensive air, land and underwater search in the Atchison area found no trace of the couple.

Sheriff John Calhoon says dozens of leads came in soon after the disappearance, but the office has not received any recent leads. He says with the current harvest clearing fields, law officers are hoping to at least find the couple's car to narrow the search.

Black was driving a light blue, 1990 4-door Honda Civic with license 605 AWX.

Very, very weird and sad at the same time. How in the world does a couple just vanish?

Why even bother with this article if you are not going to post a PICTURE OF THE COUPLE????

Well said jj. I can't believe in the age of Amber Alerts, where anyone not living under a rock hears about missing children, we can't do the same for the elderly. Unless people just don't care.
