TEMPE, Ariz. -- Family members of a missing Tempe man have flown into the Valley from across the country to help in the search.

Kyle Driscoll, 30, went missing March 20. His mother talked to him the night before and says he gave no indication that anything was wrong.

"I think I was in denial at first, but I knew I needed to come down here [to Arizona] to find him," Mary Driscoll told 3TV.

Driscoll and her daughter, Kelsey, flew to Phoenix from upstate New York. They spent Monday hanging fliers in Kiwanis Park in Tempe, where they say Kyle spent a lot of time.

Kyle Driscoll moved to Arizona last fall. He worked for a Scottsdale car dealer but lost his job recently. His sister says he still seemed to be in decent spirits.

"The last thing he texted were pictures and a note that said, 'Love you,' and I just said, 'Love you' back," she said.

The family met with Tempe police, but because of Kyle's age and lack of evidence of wrongdoing, they have not launched an official missing person investigation. They plan to meet with police again Tuesday. The Driscolls say Kyle's bank accounts have remained unchanged since his disappearance.
