Husband of Missing Utah Woman: Wife Was 'Extremely Unstable'

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(SALT LAKE CITY) -- The husband of missing Utah mother Susan Powell said in his first interview in almost a year that he believes reduced public and family scrutiny will lead to his wife's return.

Josh Powell maintained that his wife left on her own, and said that he thinks her worries about what will happen when she comes back have kept her in hiding.

"She knows she will be chewed up like hamburger when she comes back," Powell, who has been accused by his wife's family of involvement in her disappearance, said in an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune.

In the interview, Josh Powell also called his missing wife "extremely unstable" and said he feels mental illness led to her disappearance.

This week Josh Powell added a new detail to one of the case's most glaring elements when he said that a wet spot on a rug in their home that was found the morning after Susan disappeared was caused by a red stain that Susan had decided to clean before she vanished.

Susan Powell went missing from the family's home in West Valley City, Utah, on Dec. 6, 2009, the same night that Josh says he packed up their two boys, who were then 2 and 4 years old, for a night of winter camping in the midst of a blizzard.

Though he hasn't been charged in Susan's disappearance, Josh is the only person of interest in the case.
