Where Is Michael Tapley?

Shirley Tapley has a green, three-ring binder filled with notes, fliers and phone numbers. It’s an accumulation of some of the efforts the Mesa woman and her family have made in trying to find her 51-year-old son, Michael Tapley, who disappeared Feb. 15 after leaving work as a school bus driver in Snowflake.

Tapley’s granddaughter, Christine Tapley, and her fiance have logged hundreds of hours, thousands of miles and spoken with countless people searching in rural areas of Arizona and Missouri for clues to his mysterious disappearance.

“For probably two weeks I sat at this table with this book and this phone, calling people and taking calls,” said Shirley Tapley, the binder spread out before her.
The Navajo County Sheriff’s Office has stopped working on the case, even though it remains open. But the Tapleys haven’t ended their quest to find Michael. Read More
Mesa family can’t fathom man’s vanishing

For anyone willing, I think this may be our only hope, to get the media involved and FORCE someone to look closer at this case.
Thank you all so much!

I hope we can get enough exposure for this family that someone can step in and help them.

Another case of LE not stepping up quickly and acting on the knowledge of the family and those closest to the victim. This is so important!

Thanks for carrying the message!
