Monday will mark two and a half months since Susan disappeared, and police still don’t have a single lead. So the family hired a private investigator who believes she was abducted.
“You don’t want to assume the worst, but it is there and you gotta face reality at the same time,” said Susan’s husband Chris.
Chris says it’s difficult to accept his wife wasn’t there when their first grandchild was recently born.
“When I come home from work, I definitely notice the difference. When I have days off, schedules are all different now. We were always very routine and scheduled before,” he said.
Chris says it was during one of Susan’s routine morning trips running errands in May when she vanished.
Roseville police found her car in a nearby Raley’s parking lot with her purse still inside. Police and volunteers searched for clues, including questioning the last person to see her – Chris.READ MORE: What You Need To Know About California's Reopening
“They don’t have any leads. They don’t have anything pointing towards me. They don’t have anything pointing towards anyone else,” Chris said.
With no new leads weeks later, police say they’ve scaled down their investigation. Only one detective is now on the case.
However, Chris says he won’t give up looking for his wife. He’s hired a private investigator. He wouldn’t elaborate but does believe his wife was kidnapped.
“See if he can find anything that may have got dropped in the cracks, or a different perspective on stuff,” said Chris.
Chris worries what happened may never be known, but he’s doing everything he can to keep holding onto hope.
“It’s in the back of my mind and, when I have minutes to myself, it sort of comes up and it’s there,” he said. “I just try and keep myself busy, and try and keep moving forward and hope something turns up.”

Susan’s family also hired a dog to track her scent. The dog found her scent across the street from where her car was parked, but then lost it.
