Police confirm they are “searching for evidence that will lead to [the Navins’] whereabouts.”

Their son, Kyle, was arrested in September for possession of a firearm by an individual who is an unlawful user of/addicted to a controlled substance. In the affidavit for Kyle’s arrest, police said they’d determined that Jeffrey didn’t show up for work on August 6 and 7, which his brother, who works with him, said was very unusual and that Jeffrey always made prior arrangements to cover his shift. Both of their phones were also turned off.

In a series of text messages released by investigators, Jeffrey Navin accused his son Kyle of framing him for murder.

  • Jeffrey to Kyle (12:43 p.m.): Did you hurt mom?
  • Kyle to Jeffrey (12:43 p.m.): No absolutely not. Why would you think
  • Jeffrey to Kyle (12:44 p.m.): I go home and get framed for murder
  • Kyle to Jeffrey (12:45 p.m.): Oh stop
  • Jeffrey to Kyle (12:48 p.m.): I’m going to the police first

The Navins are now facing eviction from their Easton home since they have not paid rent since their disappearance.
