UTICA - The search continues for a family of three from North Carolina. On Sunday, WKTV spoke with the father of the woman who is missing. His name is Scott Franz from Alabama. Franz told WKTV at this point the family is still missing and needs the public's help.

The family of three was last seen in South Utica on Monday, February 5th. The family was visiting other family who lives in the area.

WKTV learned new information on Sunday which includes the names of the missing people. Daughter of Scott Franz, Deanna Reynolds, 24, is missing along with her husband Travis Reynolds, 25, who both reside in North Carolina. They have a son by the name of Cooper Reynolds who is also missing.

“We are extremely concerned and devastated,” said Franz. “We have a daughter named Deanna who is our only daughter and Cooper who is our only grandson.”

Franz also told WKTV that the family was staying in a cabin north of Utica. He also mentioned that the last time he spoke with his daughter was almost a week ago.

“Last word was that they were going to go back to the cabin and be in the area for a few days,” said Franz. “Then they kind of just disappeared.”

Franz said the next day he had some short texts with his daughter and then they went “silent”.

The family of three was last seen driving a silver Honda Fit with a North Carolina plate “EHJ 6976” in Utica.

WKTV spoke with the Utica Police Department and they believe the family is no longer in the area.

The police department and family members are asking for your help. If you have any knowledge of where this family could be please contact the Utica Police Department at (315)-735-3301.
