Susan Powell has been missing since December 7, 2009. She is a wife and a mother of two from West Valley City, Utah. Her husband, Josh Powell has now been named as a person of interest in the investigation.

Authorities claim that Josh Powell has not been very cooperative in helping them with the investigations as they try to locate his wife. They need him cooperation in providing the details of what may have happened that night she disappeared. An Assistant Chief Craig Black told Fox News. “We’ve been interested in what Josh has had to say all along … I wouldn’t characterize him (Joshua) as being cooperative.”

According to Josh he claims he took their children camping the same night that Susan disappeared but Susan’s family says this raises a hugs red flag. Josh says he took the kids ages 2 and 4 to the Pony Express Trail to go camping in the family’s van. He says they went around 12:30 in the morning but the night they supposedly went the weather outside was freezing cold in very low temperatures. One of Susan’s close family friends, Shelby Gifford, told authorities, “Susan would not have tolerated her children being taken out of the home after midnight to go camping in dangerously cold conditions.

Susan’s family and friends find it no surprise that Josh Powell has now been named as a
person of interest given the events and reaction to them in the past week.

Susan’s phone, purse and her keys were found inside her home which causes some suspicions. Shelby Gifford’s husband Michael says, “She would never leave her home without her… cell phone, especially if her children were gone camping in the kind of conditions that they had gone camping.”

According to the family and friends Susan and Joshua Powell’s marriage has been strained lately, citing financial and emotional stresses.

Susan Powell is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs about 130 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. Anyone knowing about where Susan Powell please call the West Valley Police Department at 801-840-4000.
