KOCHVILLE TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) – Family and friends are renewing the call for any information people may have on the disappearance of Eric Franks.

The Ohio native went missing more than three years ago and loved ones are still left with many questions unanswered.

“What I’m hoping for is to have some answered prayers, some answered prayers that we are going to find out what happened to my son,” Joanne Franks said. “I hear people saying you need to have closure, there is no such thing as closure.”

Eric Franks disappeared while in Saginaw to meet with a daughter he had only recently learned out about.

Joanne Franks said for the first time since he went missing she has accepted the fact that she will likely never see her son again.

“I did meet with detectives yesterday and for the first time, I did hear them say it’s a murder case,” she said.

Communication vital in missing juvenile cases

CHILLICOTHE – With two teen disappearances and one Amber Alert reported within the last two weeks, the Chillicothe Police Department wants family members of missing or runaway juveniles to keep in touch with law enforcement officials.

According to police Capt. Keith Washburn, when a juvenile is reported missing, an officer is immediately dispatched to the scene to gather a description of the missing person and the conditions of the disappearance.

The juvenile is then entered into the Law Enforcement Agencies Data System so other area law enforcement officials will know to look the minor. The details of the case also are entered into the National Crime Information Center.

Washburn said whether the juvenile has previously been unruly or run away from home does go into consideration when conducting a search but does not mean the investigation is taken lightly.
