It seems like a "Dateline" nightmare that you never think will happen to your family.  On Tuesday, June 16th,  my brother-in-law Sidney Cranston mysteriously disappeared near his residence in Kingman, AZ.  His father last heard from him that afternoon, just before he was to meet with someone that had an interest in one of his investment properties.  Since then, it seems like a bad dream that you're hoping you will wake up from, but know that it's all too real.

Local Law Enforcement in Kingman is actively engaged in the Search For Sid, but the clock is ticking and time is of the essence.  Sid's brother Christopher flew out to AZ on Thursday and has been frantically searching and tracking every lead possible, but leads are drying up and we fear if something doesn't break soon, we'll lose what little hope we have left to find Sid alive.

We've received many well wishes and prayers from family and friends and many of you have asked what you can do to help.  The family has asked for some financial support to retain a Private Investigator to help dive further in to the search in hopes of finding Sid.  Every donation made will be greatly appreciated as the Family struggles through this painfully helpless time.

Please help in our Search For Sid and more importantly, keep the prayers coming!

I want to thank all you for your love, support, & help. We are narrowing down a search area with some reliable information. The search will be in the near future. No date has been set and doesnt appear it will happen over the holiday weekend.
We are pleading for anyone with ATV's, horses, 4x4's, dirt bikes, etc to volunteer in the search. There will be water station(s) and we will need volunteers to help run these as well. Please don not hesitate to ask for fuel reimbursement if the lack of funds is debilitating you ability to help and you have the requested type of transportation. If anyone feels compelled to bring water/ice please do.
The date will most likely will not be posted on FB for several reasons. Please message me your phone # and which type of help you can offer on Find Sid FB page, private message, or email at IcanhelpFindSid@yahoo.com.
God bless you all and please enjoy your families & each other over the 4th of July. God bless America and each of us.

I just received news from Christopher that he'll be on Good Morning America tomorrow morning. He would like to continue the fund raising efforts so that he can expand the search. At this point, he has no hot leads and he's hoping that more exposure and resources will help.

Thank you all for being so generous and helping us to fund the search. We think we have enough to cover our expenses for now and Sid Sr. and Ginny have asked that we freeze donations at this time. Please continue to pray for Sid Jr. and our family.

On behalf of our family, I want to personally thank everyone who has donated to Help Search for Sid. Knowing that so many people care has been very uplifting. Christopher is still actively pursuing leads in AZ and several News Stations, in both WNY and AZ have been running the story. Hopefully we will here some positive news soon. Ron

I want to thank every one of you who have helped, both monetarily, ant through prayer. That is the main thing that has done the most to keep me sane through all this. It was a year gone by on 6/16/16, and Sid is still not found. Someone really knows how to cover their crimes. We do finally have federal help, so I am confident this will get solved. The Facebook page is changed to SidCranston jr., someone complained that Find Sid was not a real name, tried to shut it down. I wish I knew who, might even be a clue. Thank you all, and please keep praying.

I really appreciated the many hours Sid spent in my office at NCCC laughing a telling stories, and listening to a few of my own jokes and stories. Our prayers are with the Cranston family.
