Humboldt man goes missing after leaving work Saturday

HUMBOLDT - Dale "D.J." Stewart left work Saturday evening on a mile-and-a-half trip home and hasn't been seen since.

His wife, Tracy, said Stewart, a diabetic, was acting "a little loopy" about 5:30 p.m. and his boss at North American Industries on Iron King Road sent him home.

"He probably didn't eat enough for lunch, so his (blood) sugar was probably low," she said.

Stewart climbed into his green, 1998 Chevy pickup, Arizona license 591 KGR, and left for home, about a mile-and-a-half away.

"He headed across the highway, up Main Street in Humboldt," Tracy said, "His boss stood there and watched him (drive away), and assumed that he came to his house, which is right around the corner."

But he didn't.

Tracy is baffled, she said Sunday afternoon. "We've had people all over the place - Dewey, Humboldt, Fain Road, Jerome. We've been all the way up to Sedona. People were searching on their way to Phoenix," but there's been no sign of Stewart.

"We have no clue," she said. The family has no idea where else to look, so "right now we're waiting" for word from the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.

She's worried that his blood sugar has become a medical problem and that he does not have insulin with him. This sort of thing has never happened to Stewart before, she said.

There's no evidence of foul play, YCSO spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said, and GPS location from Stewart's cell phone has been unsuccessful so far. They have checked hospitals but didn't find him. An "attempt-to-locate" bulletin for the pickup truck has been issued to area law enforcement, but they don't have any leads as to where he might be, which would help in a search, he said.

Dale Stewart is 50 years old. He's 5-feet, 6-inches tall, has brown and grey hair, blue eyes, and weighs 185 to 190 pounds. Tracy said he would have been wearing blue jeans and work boots but didn't know what kind of T-shirt he was wearing.

The family is asking that anyone with information call them directly at 928-632-4231 or 816-262-3629.
