Missing Craig Cavanaugh found deceased

Craig Cavanaugh, 44, was last seen in Payson, AZ on July 4, 2019. He had left Farmington, NM and was heading to Peoria, AZ to start a new job. He was driving his 2012 Toyota Tacoma.

According to the “Help Us Find Craig Cavanaugh” Facebook page, the last place they were able to track Craig via iPhone location was at the Mazatzal Hotel and Casino in Payson around 2:39 am. They believe he was making a stop to take a break from driving. This is when all communications and tracking stopped.

It is said, by the people who run the page on Facebook, that the casino is not cooperating and will not release the video surveillance.

On July 12, the “Farmington Police Department – New Mexico” Facebook page made a post in regards to missing Cavanaugh. They released two photos of two men who they are trying to identify.

Turns out that these two men were using Cavanaugh’s credit cards. These two individuals were seen on surveillance cameras at a Glendale Home Depot. They also made purchases at a Maverik Gas Station in Payson and a Quiktrip in Peoria between July 5 and July 7.

A day after the Farmington Police made their post, Craig’s truck was located at an undisclosed location. The two men, however, have not been located and have not been identified.

Craig is a white male who is 5’11” and weighs 220 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes. He also has several tattoos- an Irish sleeve covering his left arm
