Woman Reports Stolen Car, Seeks Missing Family Member

An Archbold woman has filed a report of a stolen car, and is seeking information about a family member.

Jo Ann Franks, 64, 703 North Defiance Street, told officers she allowed a subject to use her car, a bronze 2001 Chevrolet Malibu, on Oct. 25, 2010.

The person left the state, and was last seen in Saginaw, Mich., on March 21, 2011.

The vehicle is valued at $4,500. She filed her stolen car report on Thursday, Sept. 13.

In conjunction with the stolen car report, police released a report filed by Jo Ann Franks on Nov. 14, 2011, requesting assistance in checking on the welfare of a family member.

Franks told police at that time the family member, identified as Eric Lee Franks, 40, had not had contact with family members for several months.

Eric Lee Franks’ last known address was listed as 703 North Defiance Street.

Police placed a request for a welfare check on Eric Lee Franks through the National Crime Information Center computer system.

While the police reports do not name Eric Lee Franks as being involved with the stolen car, the request for welfare check lists the same 2001 Malibu as the vehicle the victim was driving.
