The son of a missing Easton couple remains a person of interest in their disappearance.

State police said they are also speaking with another person as well.

They said they've taken the lead on what's being called a missing persons case.

A police source told Eyewitness News that they are questioning the son of Jeffrey and Jeanette Navin. The couple was last seen on Aug. 4. Police said Jeffrey Navin failed to show up for work after a few days.

Troopers honed in on the Kyle Navin’s Aldine Street home in Bridgeport on Wednesday. Investigators with the State Police Major Crimes division spent hours going in and out of the house.

Thursday morning, members of the state police K9 unit searched around the home as well.

"It's very eerie to see it and then know it's so close to home. It's very eerie," said Julio Solis, a neighbor.

State police spent hours at the home, which property records listed to Kyle Navin.

A police source said that the Navins’ son worked for the family business, J & J Refuse. The company’s website lists Jeffrey Navin as the president and Kyle Navin as its operations manager.

Neighbors said the scene in Bridgeport, right near the Fairfield line, was an unusual sight for a quiet neighborhood.

"[They are] nice people, very straight-laced it seemed like, happy family," said Lorraine Eckes, a neighbor. "Hopefully answers, that's apparently what they're trying to find, what happened to these people."

Solis said he often saw the Navins walking in the area.

“We haven't seen them in a few weeks and then that's what we've been talking about as well,” he said.

At the time of their disappearance, police said they learned that the couple owed more than $2 million. Much of it was tied to a home in Guilford.

The family, however, stressed that the debt is not a factor because funds in a bank account have not been touched.

On Aug. 9, five days after they were last seen, police said they found their car in a commuter lot off the Merritt Parkway in Westport. A window was broken.

"To see something like this is very strange," Solis said.

Eyewitness News also learned that police will be issuing several search warrants on Thursday for other locations related to the case.
