Still missing. Sixty-nine-year-old Joseph Cadle of Buckeye hasn’t been seen or heard from since New Year’s Eve when his daughter Marla Cadle called to wish him a Happy New Year at midnight. The following day, Cadle says she received some confusing phone messages from her father about needing his pin number
to pick up some prescription he had already picked up the day before. She says that message was her first clue something was wrong. She repeatedly called her father to no avail. Cadle says she went to his home and realized he was missing, along with his 2006 white Chevrolet Trailblazer.
Cadle says “the not-knowing” is what’s frustrating and Buckeye police aren’t talking. Cadle called police Tuesday and “kinda lost it” after days of hearing nothing from authorities. She just wants to know what’s going on.
Cadle, who suffers from the beginning stages of dementia, may have become lost and refused to ask for directions initially. Marla says she hopeful someone comes across him. If you see him, just say the names of his beloved dogs, “Max” and “Bernie,” and Joe will be able to focus his attention. Police say Cadle may be heading back to his hometown in Indiana and plan to post flyers along the route by way of Interstate-17.
A Silver Alert has been issued Cadle, who is described as a White man, about five-ten, 220 pounds with brown hair. Cadle’s car is a white 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer with license plate number BAR-3083.
