LINN COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) – The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is investigating a crime scene connected to two missing persons from rural Pleasanton.

The missing persons, Betty Mcnabb, age 87, and her son, Kenneth Mcnabb, age 65, were reported missing by family members late Friday evening. A check of their residence at 16310 E. 1650 Rd. in Pleasanton led the Linn County Sheriff’s office to suspect foul play.

The KBI has had agents and a crime scene reconstruction team in the area since Saturday pursuing leads. On Saturday afternoon, the KBI and the Linn County Sheriff’s office located a person of interest who is currently being held for questioning.

Agencies assisting in this investigation include the Overland Park Police Department, the Crawford County Sheriff’s office, the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, and the Kansas Highway Patrol.

The investigation continues. Anyone with information is asked to call the KBI at 1-800-KS-CRIME.
