SAGUACHE — Monday, March 31, will be five years since Saguache area resident Mike Rust, 55, disappeared.

Although those investigating his disappearance believe he became involved in an altercation with burglars near his home and was probably killed as a result, his body has never been recovered and his killers have never been brought to justice.

“Everything is status quo,” Saguache County Sheriff Mike Norris said on Friday. “We have not had any new developments.”

Authorities and Rust’s family have never given up hope they would at least realize some closure in his death. They would appreciate locating his remains at least.

To that end, a new web site www.MissingMikeRust.com, has been set up where tips about what may have happened to him can be left confidentially and anonymously.
