Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

On February 4, 2010, the McStay family of four mysteriously vanished from their Southern California home. In the past three years, the FBI, Homeland Security, Interpol, the Mexican Federales, as well as numerous National Missing Persons agencies have all investigated this disappearance to no avail. Unconfirmed sightings of the family have been reported along the East Coast of the U.S. from New Jersey to Florida, as well as Mexico, Costa Rica and Haiti. Yet, the $25,000 cash reward for finding the family remains unclaimed. What happened to Joseph, Summer, Gianni, and Joseph Mateo McStay? Did one or all of them meet with foul play by a family member, as some believe, or did they decide to start a new life somewhere else? Are there four bodies buried in a shallow Southern California grave, or are Joseph and Summer watching all this commotion from afar, smiling as they sip their margaritas? Rick Baker is one of the foremost authorities on the McStay case, having spent countless hours in the past three years investigating and researching this mystery. He has followed an extensive paper trail, interviewedfriends and family, and traveled to locations where sightings have been reported. This is his account of what may have transpired leading up to and following the disappearance."
