    Details of Disappearance

    Turner was last seen near the intersection of Redmont Drive and Sugarloaf Street in Mesa, Arizona on December 24, 2010. He left home at 11:00 a.m. for his daily walk, which normally lasted about twenty minutes. He never returned and has never been heard from again. An extensive search of the area turned up no sign of him. There were possible sightings of him in the local area in the days after his disappearance, but these haven't been confirmed.

    Turner is described as a very active man who exercised and lifted weights at the local gym every day. He has four children, and he and his wife had been married for sixty years by the time he disappeared. They had lived in the Mesa area for about twenty years. Previously they lived in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. His family believes he is deceased and they held a memorial service for him a year after he disappeared.
