TV Show to Feature Missing Family

A cable television show focusing on the disappearance of a North County family is shooting in San Diego this week.

Joseph McStay, a Fallbrook businessman; his wife, Summer; and their two children, Gianni 4, Joseph Jr. 3 were last seen Feb.4. A group of people resembling the McStays was spotted on surveillance video crossing into Mexico at the San Ysidro border crossing on Feb. 8.

Family members keep a website updated with milestones, like family member's birthdays. On the site, the family reports that the Discovery Channel program "Disappeared" is spending the week in San Diego interviewing investigators as well as relatives and friends of the McStays for a profile on the case.

"Life is moving forward," the family posted to the site. "But many of us are simply stuck somewhere back in February, searching for answers, hoping for a miracle."

Since their disappearance, investigators said, the McStays haven't used their bank accounts, credit cards or cell phones.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the McStay family is urged to call the San Diego Sheriff's Department at (858) 974-2321 or (858) 565-5200 after-hours.

Tips can also be called in anonymously to CrimeStoppers at 888-580-TIPS(8477). A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered by CrimeStoppers for information leading to an arrest.
