CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - It has been more than three days since a Clover man vanished after leaving from work in Charlotte Thursday. Michael Randy McFalls Sr.'s family is not giving up hope in finding him, but they continue to hit dead ends.
Though Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are on the case, McFalls Sr.'s family is taking matters into their own hands.
On Sunday, Michael Randy McFalls Jr., who is the missing man's son, and dozens of other relatives and family friends passed out nearly 200 flyers in the neighborhoods near McFalls Sr.'s work which is off Stuart Andrew Boulevard in west Charlotte. McFalls Jr., says he has barely slept since Thursday night, but he will not stop until his father is found.
"He's a family man, he's a company man," McFalls Jr. said. "He loves his work, but he loves his family even more."
McFalls Jr. says his dad has been a project manager at the same Charlotte construction company since 1992.
The 52-year-old left work in the 3900 block of Stuart Andrews Boulevard in Charlotte Thursday afternoon around 4:30 p.m.
McFalls Sr.'s supervisor said he saw him leave work and said he was acting fine. The supervisor says McFalls Sr. then told him he was heading home for the day.
McFalls Sr.'s wife says her husband of 31 years texted her and said he was on his way home to Clover but planned to stop to get something to drink. That is the last time anyone heard from him.
McFalls Jr. says family members don't know which way McFalls Sr. turned out of his work's parking lot and they do not know if he ever made it to a store.
Family members said they have been stopping at nearby convenience stores, but so far no one has seen him. The family has also tried to track McFalls Sr.'s location on his cellphone, iPad or apple watch, but they say all his devices are turned off.
McFalls Jr. says his father drives a pearl white 4-door 2013 Chevy Silverado, which has a Clemson sticker on the lower right hand side of the tailgate.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say McFalls Sr.'s vehicle has a North Carolina plate with DZ-7187.
The younger McFalls says there was a hit on his license plate on Wednesday, but nothing on Thursday, when he went missing.
"OnStar couldn't track him because it hasn't been activated in four years," McFalls Jr. said.
For a family man who has stuck to the same routine for many years, relatives say this is completely out of character for the elder McFalls.
"He wouldn't just disappear and not tell anyone. He's a family man he loves his family," McFalls Jr. said. Relatives are trying to keep their hopes up, but as time goes on, they can't help but feel hopeless.
"We're trying to think of the best possible scenario, but then you can't forget the worst possible scenario. We just don't know," McFalls Jr. said.
As of Sunday night, CMPD said there were no updates in this case.
The man's family is offering a $5,000 reward to anyone with information that leads to information surrounding his disappearance.
