To those who truly know me know that I have never taken not one dime from mom or dad.
Hello Anthony, you know that leeches come out at the first sign of weakness. It's kind of like what happens to some, when the lights go out and they feel that they have to loot in cities and towns that are not prepared. The mentality strays from something other than human. If there is any way possible, you're parents need you down here. I know you've watched this grow with horror, frustration and anger, and none that care will begrudge you that now or in the future. There has been a lot of positive input on this site from folks that know and love Sandy and Larry, some have not met you but would like to. Some have lost loved ones in bad ways, so can relate and sympathize with the situation and there is some that still want to bring them home regardless of the outcome with Willie. You and your family have been in our prayers from the onset.

Why in the world would he want to do that on this site? The crimes of Willie are not his and anything that comes to light in the future, he'll deal with it at that time. This is about finding the missing, not missing items!

We don't need your or Willie living here. You're in and out of jail and came and got stuff to sell just like he did. Getting rid of Willie was good no need to bring another thief who could care less in. No thanks to you being our neighbor.

Couple Still Missing

UPDATE 10/9/12 @ 6 p.m. PAINTSVILLE, Ky.(WSAZ)-- In the troubling Larry and Sandra Blanton missing persons case, both persons of interest are now behind bars, as suspicions increase by the day.

On Monday, the Blanton's son was arrested.

The drug charges on ex-convict Willie Blanton add another puzzle piece to the mounting reasons he's the key person of interest.

Willie’s farm couple parents have not been heard from since Sept. 5 -- and the search is looking more and more like a recovery.

Sheriff Dwayne Price knew Larry Blanton filled his pain pill scripts at the Paintsville Value-Med Pharmacy -- so he waited.

When Willie arrived at the pharmacy Monday afternoon to try and fill his missing father's prescription, the known habitual criminal was arrested on the spot.

The other person of interest in the case, Willie’s girlfriend Amanda Fannin, was arrested last week for flagrant non-support and drug charges.

After Willie’s arrest, the sheriff asked again --did you kill your parents and hide their bodies?

“He kind of got emotional and told me,‘I told you all I know, I don't know nothing,‘" Price said. "But he's given four or five stories “

Mary and Philip Jackson are among many neighbors who say the Blanton’s would never leave their farm without good reason.

“He’s got stock -- any farmer knows he just can't up and leave if he's got stock,” Philip Jackson said.

Price says as soon as the couple went missing 35 days ago, Willie and Amanda moved from their trailer into his parent's home.

The sheriff also says Willie has scrounged up all the loose metal on the farm and sold it for scrap. And he says Willie sold off all his father's cattle.

“They've not been heard from, not used their bank cards or cell phones, it’s like they vanished,” Price said.

“With him being gone as long as he has, we're fearing the worst but praying for the best --that Larry and Sandra turn up safe,” Phillip said.

Following the recent canine search of the Blanton property, Price will again search the Blanton home -- this time using a chemical that can detect blood even if it's mopped up.

Price says Willie and Amanda have also illegally cashed a dozen or more of the Blantons' checks -- both before and after the vanishing.

The Sheriff will soon take those charges to a grand jury as he continues to follow leads and gather evidence.

Many of those leads suggest where the parent’s bodies might be found, Price said.

We have contacted the Texas EquuSearch and Rescue Org. They are a group of trained volunteers who bring their equip and knowledge of its use to various searches, based on the needs of the terain. They assist the Sheriff's Dept and work within the letter of the law. One gentleman will be in Paintsville this weekend to meet with Sheriff Price and look at Sandy and Larry's place to see what they will need. He will have a team of about 10 trained volunteers come in the following week end. At that point it may become necessary to ask for local folks to come in and help in the search. They usually use a church in the area as a command post. Please if they need your help please do so. The family would greatly appreciate it.

Mam, if I can be there I will, I have classes starting near the end of the month that will take me some distance from this area, but if the search is before that, I'll attend. You may suggest to someone involved in the investigation, to ask for volunteers from the ESSO Grotto. I'm sure they will find some more than willing, it's in their nature. There may be some that know the area well. This is the site for contact. http://www.caves.org/grotto/esso/

I agree. Anyone with a heart that cold is just horrible. However I disagree about the brother being devastated. He was in jail when all that occurred and he doesn't mind one little bit that his brother and Amanda Fannin has moved right in to their ready made home and property and is selling everything out of that place, he's just worried about his cut to. He didn't even bother to contest it- which he could of said stop selling my parents things but he didn't. Sad. I hope their conscience eats away at them every minute of the day For everything they've done
Don't know where you got your information, but Anthony wasn't in jail. He didn't know of the things that were sold til afterwards. That is when he stepped in because he thought the law was taking care of those things. He has gone several times to see how things are and cries constantly. He has been lost and this is coming from a person who hasn't always been close to him, but does see the hurt he is going through! It has nothing to do with his cut cause he could care less about that. He just wants to know where his mother is....

Everyone needs to ban together and find them. Stop pointing fingers an saying this person or that just wants something. It is all about Sandy and Larry now! My thoughts in life has changed so much in the past year as I battle illnesses that threaten my time with my children. When I first heard of them missing I already knew something wasn't right cause I hadn't heard from her in a while. I have many regrets knowing my child didn't get to know his other grandmother other then phone conversations. My children have always been my life and I try to keep a positive influence on them. I've never been a drug addict or in any kind of trouble and wanted the same for them. Please please people hold your family close and love them and try to help them in any way you can. Join with each other and find them so family and friends can have peace of mind. The closure they deserve. I will be praying everyday for them and all of the family!

I can't believe how many of you trashy-ass rednecks have internet access. Judging by your horrible grammar, your total lack of any real grasp of reality, your general stupidity and cruelty to others, I can't believe you're even smart enough to turn a computer on and find this page. Why don't you go back to abusing prescription drugs, "muddin" and inbreeding and leave the internet to those of us who actually know how to use it and are making it a better place, rather than the septic tank you're all turning it into. Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot that you don't know what a septic tank is. You just run a straight pipe to the "crick" and drain your toilet water straight into the same water you drink. No wonder you're so ignorant.

Yeah, and almost ALL of them are worthless. I'm guessing you were, or you wouldn't be so offended by that. I don't know a single person that's be sentenced to time in jail. It's really not that hard to stay out of jail. Maybe you should try it some time. Or maybe you just like being Bubba's girlfriend.

To low life piece of trash that keeps talking shit about me..u dnt know me..but ur completely on my bad side. U have no idea what course my life has traveled. Why don't u allow me to meet u and then ill give u something to post. Because u obviously aren't writing on this post to do anything except bad mouth me so like I said meet me and then u will have somethin to post about...otherwise keep my name out of your mouth. U see I don't hide behind some screen name & I am who I am. I can't change my past but I love my mother & father more than life itself. Now they've been taken from me. And all I have left is the possessions that they had. And worked hard all their life for. And ill be damned if I sit & watch fam members who my mother didn't wish to carry a conversation with decide what happens to her stuff. And if any fam members have anything to say to me..you know my #. I mean really you know who I'm talking about and u too shall pay for the things you've said behind my back..& never had guts to say to my face. My brother gets arrested and you put locks on my mothers house and as much as I hate to say and even to think of what is most certainly reality who do you think my mother wouldve wanted to have her things? Certainly not the people who have taken it upon themself to control what is going on on that hill now. And she sure wouldn't have wanted her animals taken off that hill to a stepdaughers house who never lived one day with her father. This may sound mean but its not meant to hurt. Simply stating facts. I am their son. No one will give me any advice so I'm left to wonder of what she wouldve wanted. Don't make me put what me & my mother have had many convos of the pain & hurt she felt from fam members and the things that they've done to destroy relationships within the fam. Bc I will be more than happy to let people know but opf course those will be denied and my mother is not here to speak of it. So ill leave that at that. All I want and all I've always wanted is to know well I won't go as to far to speak of that. I just pray that my mom and dad are found.
prayers for them all

Anthony you loved your Mom and its obvious. I pray your right and your mom and dad are found soon. But you must hang in there and do what you think your parents would want you to do. Talk to the sheriffs dept to see if they cant help you keep your parents personal belongings safe from greed. God Bless you
