Weston, CT (WFSB) -

Connecticut State Police reported to Weston on Thursday evening in connection to the search of a missing Easton couple.

Police said they were searching Norfield Road in Weston on Thursday evening.

Jeffrey and Jeannette Navin have been missing since Aug. 4.

No further information was released by police.

According to sources, the couple’s son, Kyle Navin, is a person of interest in his parents’ disappearance.

He is currently behind bars on federal gun charges.

Five days after the couple was last seen, their vehicle was found in a commuter lot off the Merritt Parkway in Westport.

A source told Eyewitness News that there was a bullet hole found in the car.

Kyle Navin worked for the family business, J & J Refuse. The company's website listed Jeffrey Navin as the president and Kyle Navin as its operations manager.

According to police, Jeannette Navin went on her son's garbage route on Aug. 4 to help him, and police said her phone went inactive later that morning.

The affidavit showed several text messages Jeffrey Navin said to his son Kyle saying: "I'm not going home until I know mom is okay," and asking "Did you hurt mom?" Kyle responded "No, absolutely not. Why would you think."

The text messages continue with Jeffrey Navin saying "I go home and get framed for murder," and his son replied "Oh stop." Jeffrey then said "I'm going to the police first," and his son said "Ok and the reason being?"

Seven minutes later, Jeffrey Navin's last text to his son said "U R setting me up."

Based on that information, police searched Kyle Navin's Bridgeport home and the affidavit said police seized two guns and numerous rounds of ammunition.

Eyewitness News was told Bridgeport police officers also recovered a receipt from Home Depot, showing Navin allegedly purchased gemicidal bleach, hair/grease drain opener, "Goo Gone" stain remover and contractor clean up bags.

Six days later, investigators allegedly recovered hypodermic needles and prescription bottles.

Kyle Navin is being charged with possession of a firearm by an individual who is an unlawful user or addicted to control substance.
