KINGMAN - Police are still actively searching for missing Realtor Sidney Cranston Jr., but they aren't having much luck locating him.

"There are no changes," said Jennifer Sochocki, public information officer with the Kingman Police. "We have multiple detectives assigned exclusively to this case but we have no new leads at this time."

Cranston, 40, was last seen June 16 at about noon in the area of I-40 and Stockton Hill Road. Cranston was reported to be showing an unknown property to an unknown client.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office and the Kingman Police Department are investigating his disappearance and are requesting the assistance of the public for any information. Cranston had several thousand dollars in his pocket when he disappeared, and there has been no activity on his bank account since then

Not only has Cranston's cell phone been "pinged" - the battery was dead - but police traced his last call and found that it came from a house his friend was working on at the time. Cranston's motorcycle was still parked there.

Sochocki said officials are working to put together all the small bits of information provided to them so far. What police know for sure right now, she said, is Cranston's physical description and where he was last seen.

Cranston is described as 5-foot-9, 162 pounds, brown hair, blue eyes, and a light growth of facial hair. He was last seen wearing a gray ball cap, prescription glasses, white sleeveless T-shirt, blue jeans, and multicolored tennis shoes.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Kingman Police Department at (928) 753-2191, report tips online at, or report anonymously by calling Mohave Silent Witness at (928) 753-1234.

There is a $500 reward for any information leading to the location of the missing person.
