E-mail Print PDF

A second search for Michael Glenn Chambers, who disappeared from his Quinlan home March 10, yielded no results, according to a Hunt County official.

An initial search for Chambers was conducted on Thursday. Neither, however, has yielded the results that were hoped for, said Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks.

“We didn’t find anything,” Meeks said. “It’s frustrating.”

Almost 50 people, drones and canine units participated in the search at a location which was not disclosed. Meeks said his office has been receiving tips from the public concerning Chambers.

“We’re getting some,” Meeks said. “Some are legitimate and some are not. We are going to regroup Monday and see where we go from here.”

Chambers, 70, was last seen on a surveillance camera at the Quinlan Walmart on the morning of March 10.

The sheriff’s office was notified shortly before 7 p.m. Friday of Chambers’ disappearance from his residence in the 7000 block of FM 2101.

A small amount of blood was located in a workshop at the residence, but there were no signs of a struggle, and Meeks has said it is unclear whether Chambers was injured and walked away from the shop seeking help or was forcibly taken from the building.

The Chambers family has posted a $25,000 reward for information which leads to his safe return. Brantley Burns with Farm Bureau Insurance is offering a $1,000 reward for information which results in Chambers’ being found safe and Hunt County Crime Stoppers is also publicizing the incident in seeking tips about what happened.

Chambers is described as 6 feet, 3 inches tall, weighing 225 pounds, balding with gray hair. Chambers typically wears a Dallas Fire Department T-shirt and ball cap.

Anyone with information on Chambers’ location is asked to call the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office at 903-453-6800, Crime Stoppers at 903-457-2929 or 911.
