YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A 31-year-old Youngstown man has been missing from his home since April 10 and his family is desperate to find him.
They held a search party Saturday afternoon in an attempt to bring him home.
“I would never wish this on any parent, this is the most helpless I’ve ever been in my life. I’m his mother and I can’t find him,” said Stephanie Myers.
It’s been over a week since Malcolm Myers went missing from his home on Pasadena Avenue in Youngstown.
“Las thing he told me was, ‘I’ll see you later Ma, I love you,'” Myers said.
Saturday, friends and family came together to search for him or any possible leads.
“We’ve never been through anything like this before and we’ve been out here look every day, we’ve been in abandoned houses, dark, wooded secluded areas,” said Malcolm’s sister Tiffany Black.
Black said Malcolm left his car on April 10 and hasn’t been back since. She said it’s very unlike him not to answer any of their calls and said his car was found on Cleveland Street in Youngstown about a week ago.
“We know foul play was involved, his car was found abandoned at an abandoned house with his license plates ripped off and thrown in the bushes,” Black said.
Three of Malcolm’s cousins have been lost to violence and just the day before he went missing, there was a memorial service for his grandfather.
His family says it’s a real-life nightmare.
“You want to be hopeful but knowing my brother if he could, he would reach out to us, if he could, he would come home, he would never not let her know where he’s at like that,” Black said.
Malcolm’s mother said he has the biggest heart and she just wants him home.
“I can’t sleep, I can’t eat, I can’t work, my life will never be the same. I just want my baby back,” Myers said.
Stephanie and Tiffany said they’re not going to stop. They will continue to search for Malcolm and ask questions. until they get answers on his disappearance.
If you have any information you’re urged to call Youngstown Police.
