BRIDGEPORT, CT (WFSB) -

While police try to crack the case of that missing couple from Easton, their son made his second court appearance for federal gun and drug charges on Thursday.

Kyle Navin, 27, was arrested Sept. 8 after several interviews and searches of his Bridgeport home.

According to sources, he has been a person of interest in the disappearance of Jeffrey and Jeannette Navin.

The couple was last seen on Aug. 4. Five days afterward, investigators said they found their car in a commuter lot off of the Merritt Parkway in Westport. A source told Eyewitness News that a bullet hole was found in the car.

According to an affidavit, it was a series of text messages between Kyle Navin and his father that aroused suspicion and lead to the house searches.

In addition to the texts, police said they found two guns and ammunition at Kyle Navin's Bridgeport home.

The affidavit states police also discovered a receipt from the home depot showing Kyle Navin purchased germicidal bleach, hair/grease drain opener, "goo gone" stain remover and contractor clean up bags.

According to that affidavit, a second search revealed, heroin stamped baggies, hypordermic needles and prescription bottles, along with a receipt from a gun range.

That's why Kyle Navin was charged with possession of a firearm by a person who is addicted to a controlled substance.

State police have searched wooded areas and fields in Easton, along with an ash landfill in Putnam, but still no trace of the couple.  No one has been charged in their disappearance.

After the second court appearance for Kyle Navin, his lawyer declined to comment outside federal court on Thursday afternoon.

If convicted of this gun charge, Kyle Navin faces up 10 years in federal prison, three years supervised release and a up to a $250,000 fine.

He'll remain in prison with jury selection tentatively scheduled for November.
