Daughter-in-law of Patrick McStay and Susan Blake.
Friend of Jesi Silvera.
Sister of Tracy Russell.
Had two dogs, Bear and Baby Bear.
On February 4, 2010, Summer McStay, her husband Joseph, and their young sons Gianni and Joseph Jr. disappeared from San Diego, California. The family of four was living a happy life, and had recently moved to a new house, which they were renovating and turning into their dream home. Joseph had a newly successful business designing and installing water fountains. This gave him a flexible schedule and the ability to work from home, so he could spend more time with his family.
