Family searching for missing Four Corners man

BLOOMFIELD, N.M. -- A Four Corners man has been missing since mid-June. This week, his brothers have traveled cross-country to try and help find him. One brother flew in from Buffalo, New York, the other from Durham, North Carolina.


Louis Stouffer, known as Jim, was last seen the evening of June 13, dropping his wife off at work in Bloomfield. In the morning, he never showed up to pick her up. Ed and Shane Sinnott have been papering the state with flyers looking for their brother.

Shane Sinnott described this trip as the “worst roller-coaster" ride ever.

“We put about 850 flyers, literally plastered each town along the way with my brother's face hoping someone recognizes and sees him,” he said.

 “[He] wouldn't leave her stranded, wouldn't leave his wife, wouldn’t leave his daughter,” added Ed Sinnott.


Stouffer’s car was found on an oil field road north of Aztec a few weeks later. Aside from one possible sighting, he hasn't been seen or heard from since.

"We just want him to know we love him, care about him and just trying to find out brother," Shane Sinnott said.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Stouffer is asked to call Bloomfield police or San Juan County dispatch.

“I still keep hoping he is out there, he will see this or someone will see this. Bad or good, we want some type of closure,” Shane Sinnott said.

“Jim, we care about you and we hope you see this, and we just hope to find you,” added Ed Sinnott.
