In February of 2010 the family disappeared from their home in San Diego County, leaving a mystery of their whereabouts for almost 4 years. Family and friends were left in the dark when they had no leads or tips on what could have happened. 

Rumors of the McStays heading across the Mexican border surfaced based on a grainy video located by officials, and their car being located near a strip mall not far from the border. 

It wasn’t until Monday, November 11, 2013 at approximately 10:00 a.m., deputies from the Victorville Sheriff’s Station were dispatched to the desert area between Quarry Road and I15, north of Stoddard Wells Road in the county area of Victorville, following the report of possible skeletal remains being located by a motorcyclist. Deputies responded to the location and the Coroner wererequested and confirmed the remains were human.

Using dental records, the coroner identified the remains to be that of Summer and Joseph McStay and their two small children; Gianni and Joseph McStay.

On November 7th, 2014 at 9:00 a.m., authorities from the San Bernardino County Sheriffs Department are expected to hold  a news conference where they plan on releasing new information on the McStay case. 

According to a Facebook post by Michael McStay ( the brother of the deceased victim Jospeh McStay) he stated “Thank You Lord…. Today is a Beautiful Day for Justice!!!!”McStay
