Mustaine in plea for his missing mum-in-law

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has pleaded for help in finding his missing mother-in-law.

Sally Estabrook, 75, is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and hasn’t been seen since Saturday afternoon. Police say the last sighting was at a campsite near her San Diego home. Her husband raised the alarm.

Mustaine tells KFMB: “My wife is very, very upset. With Sally having Alzheimer’s, it complicates it so much.”

His son Justis says: “We miss her. We want her to come back. We want to find her. She’s been out there two nights already, no food, no water, nowhere to sleep. We just hope she’s all right.”

Sally Estabrook is described as 5ft 4in tall with shoulder-length blonde hair, wearing a blueish top and white trousers. It’s thought she may answer to her name. Anyone with information is asked to contact San Diego Sheriff’s Department on (858) 565 5200.

Mustaine last night tweeted: “Please send good thoughts, and prayers from those of you who pray, as we search.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
