SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (WISH) - The Shebyville Police Department said a Shelbyville family has apparently gone missing under suspicious circumstances.
Tuesday, the police received a call from an extended family member, requesting they check on the Guy family. Officers found that four people, Robert L. Guy, 52, Debra K. Guy, 52, their son, Joseph R. Guy, 18, and adopted son, Zachary C. Guy, 2, were missing.
A family member told 24-Hour News 8 "there were things at the scene that were suspicious and makes them believe that the family is in danger." The family member also said there had been a burglary at the residence in recent months. Family also told 24-Hour News 8 that the parents had recently quit their jobs. The teen also has a history of trouble and was arrested in February by Indianapolis Metropolitan Police.
Relatives and church members have not heard from the Guy family for a week. The family's two cars are both gone. One is a black 2008 four-door Hyundai with Indiana license plate 537 BOP. The other is a white Mercury Mariner with Indiana In God We Trust license plate NQ 7516.
Anyone with information about the family should contact the Shelbyville Police Department at 317-392-2511.
In February, the teen son was arrested on a warrant on a charge of stalking. That case began Jan. 15, when an IMPD officer responded to Ivy Tech campus in Indianapolis. A security guard there reported being harassed by Joseph Guy.
According to the police report, Guy had appeared at the school around the first of the year, in uniform, claiming to be the guard's supervisor. The guard said Guy followed him during his duties and continued showing up during the guard's night shift.
The report says the guard grew concerned when Guy "made advances to him sexually and began to email him and wrote him on Facebook."
A little after 7 that same morning, police checked what they called "a rolling disturbance". They decided to treat it as a stalking case.
The report shows that Guy was in his car following the guard's car.
When the police stopped him, the investigating officer said he took a gun and ammunition from Guy's car and saw a bag of plastic zip ties on the front seat of Guy's car. The guard said he had not been threatened. Just followed. Police confiscated the gun and ammunition. but they did not arrest Guy. That happened the following month.
In February, IMPD arrested the teen on a charge of stalking, and in March, Joseph's father surrendered an array of weapons to police, because a court order prohibited the items from being in the home due to a protection order against his son. The weapons ranged from a shotgun to rifles, knives, and ammunition.
As the year draws to a close, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard says he's still waiting for something he asked for back in March.
