North Idaho

Sister of missing Hayden man desperate for answers

POST FALLS, Idaho - The family of a missing Hayden man is desperately hoping for his safe return home.

William "Bo" Kirk, 41, went missing around 7 p.m. Saturday after he left work in Post Falls. Two hours later, his pickup truck was found engulfed in flames at the 23,000 block of North Rimrock Road.

When Claudia Jackson woke up Monday, she was waking up to another day of worry and uncertainty.

Her brother, Bo, has been missing since Saturday night, and there still are no answers. She's taking it into her own hands, trying to get information.

"Saturday night at 7 p.m. It's not a dead time. Somebody had to see something," said Jackson.

Jackson, along with friends and family, have been posting signs around North Idaho, trying to get the word out about her brother's disappearance.

"We have basically been posting them everywhere," Jackson said.

Kirk was last seen leaving work at Northwest Specialty Hospital. He never made it home to his wife and three children.

So far, there have been no signs of Kirk. Jackson wants Kirk's face to be recognized by everyone, even giving her signs to strangers to pass around.

"They're getting it out to the areas that aren't here," said Jackson. "So, Blanchard, Athol, Smelterville. So, yeah, it's been amazing."

With such strong support from people she's never met, Jackson hopes her brother will make it home soon.

"To know that we have that much support out there is amazing, because whatever brings my brother home, that's what we need to do," Jackson said.

If you saw Bo Kirk Saturday night, or know anything about his disappearance, you're asked to call Post Falls Police at 208-773-3517.
