TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Pima County Sheriff’s officials say a man has been arrested after his estranged wife and mother-in-law went missing earlier this week in Tucson.
They say 43-year-old Norman Schrank is being held on suspicion of kidnapping, aggravated assault and burglary.
It was unclear Thursday if he has legal representation yet.
Sheriff’s officials say 40-year-old Jeni McClurg was found safe near Payson but her 65-year-old mother, Sachiko McClurg, remains missing and foul play is suspected.
