Wife of missing Cape Girardeau County, MO man speaks out
CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - A man from Cape Girardeau County, Missouri went missing on Saturday, August 18.
According to Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Office, Kyle Ellis Mason, 61 of Fruitland, Mo., left his home. Mason has no vehicle and has a breathing condition.
Mason was last seen wearing baggy blue jeans and a teal and white button-down shirt (front of the shirt is teal and the back is white.)
Evelyn Mason, wife of Kyle Mason, said he left the home around noon.
Evelyn Mason said she filed for a divorce on Friday after 20 years of marriage with Kyle Mason.
She stated they even had an argument earlier that day before he left. Evelyn Mason also said that her filing for the divorce could be the reason why he left.
"The day before, he had been found up the road by the sheriff's department," Evelyn Mason said. "So I picked him up and brought him back home and he said he was just going for a walk. He likes to walk. So I don't know if he was just walking and something happened or what."
"He can't walk that far," Evelyn said Mason added. "He's got COPD really bad and he can walk like maybe from here to the other side of their driveway up there. And he has to stop for about a half-hour to an hour and take a break, if not longer.
Evelyn Mason stated that he doesn't have his phone since he broke it a couple days ago.
She just hopes he comes home or is found safe.
He's a good man. I love him to death," Evelyn said Mason. "I just want him home and I'm just so worried that something happened with his illness that he could be anywhere and I don't know if he is up in someone's house or in some field somewhere or what."
"I'm a wreck. I just want to know if he's alright, if he's alive. If he's alright and if he's coming home," Evelyn said. "He's got nowhere else to go."
Anyone with information about Mason's location is asked to contact the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Office at (573) 243-3551.
