The Connecticut State Police found no human remains after searching a landfill in Puntam in connection with missing Easton couple case.

Police said their detectives searched the Putnam Ash Residue Landfill, which is ran by Wheelabrator Technologies, this week. The search comes after Jeffrey and Jeanette Navin, of Easton, was last reportedly seen on Aug. 4.

Police sources told Eyewitness News that the couple’s son Kyle Navin has been questioned in their disappearance. Investigators with the State Police Major Crimes division spent hours going in and out of his Aldine Street home in Bridgeport on Wednesday.   

State police said they searched the Putnam Ash Residue Landfill because it was “an effort to rule it out as a possible location.”

Investigators said they continue to “conduct searches, gather evidence, and follow leads to determine the whereabouts of the Navins.”

Wheelabrator Technologies is cooperating with the Connecticut State Police. 

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.

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.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Connecticut State Police at 860-685-8190.  All call will be kept confidential.
