Police: Missing NY man may have been killed

CHATEAUGAY, N.Y. -

A teary-eyed Maynard Jarvis looked on as New York State Police searched his son's house and property on White Street in Chateaugay, looking for any clue into his disappearance.

"I would really like to know what is going on," Maynard Jarvis said.

Dale Jarvis, 48, was last seen in late February. His family never reported him missing because they had no indication he may be in danger.

"I'm not prepared to discuss the circumstances of the last encounter," N.Y. State Police Maj. Richard Smith said.

Police were made aware of Jarvis' disappearance three weeks ago when a confidential informant came forward.

"That information has led us to what we are doing here now on this property," Smith said.

Neighbors weren't concerned either. Jarvis' son DJ, who lives with him, gave them a reason for his dad's disappearance.

"He said he got a job down south," said Patricia Landry, who lives next door.

But police suspect that may not be true. They're using cadaver dogs and carefully digging for evidence on the property.

"We are certainly looking for any clues into the disappearance of Mr. Jarvis up to and including his body could be located on this property," Smith said.

Police say the search of Jarvis' home and three-acre property will continue for days.

"We are prepared to do whatever we have to do to search that entire parcel, three acres, to include digging and sifting the ground for any clues," Smith said.

For now, Maynard Jarvis can only watch as police search his son's property. He hopes for answers soon.

"I hope we hear something," he said, "not bad."

A family holding out hope that Dale Jarvis may still be alive.

Anyone with information about what might have happened to Dale Jarvis is asked to call the New York State Police.
