YCSO seeking information on missing Black Canyon City man


BLACK CANYON CITY – Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office detectives are seeking the whereabouts of 50-year-old Casey Nethercott, who owns the Black Canyon Feed Store and resides in Black Canyon City.

Nethercott has been missing for about a month now. He left vehicles, a cell phone, and his wallet with bank cards behind. YCSO reported that Nethercott is also diabetic, and his medicine was found at his residence.

YCSO first put out a public call for information on Nethercott’s whereabouts in a press release on Sept. 22. In Sept. 28 email to The Foothills Focus, YCSO said that detectives are continuing follow-ups and interviews with Nethercott’s associates.

The report was originally filed on Sept. 18, by a concerned friend. Neighbors in the area confirm Nethercott has not been seen for over three weeks. Those who know Nethercott indicate this behavior is unusual because he will usually make plans known when leaving the area for an extended period.

Due to the suspicious nature of this incident, YCSO detectives have served search warrants at his business and home to assist in gathering further details such as phone and bank records and any writings that may provide clues to his disappearance. Friends and associates are also being interviewed.

Nethercott’s information has been entered into a national data base as a missing/endangered person. Records show he is 5’ 11” in height, about 240 pounds, bald, with blue eyes.
