BRIDGETON, Mo. (KSDK) - More than 100 senior citizens, some on oxygen and walkers, say they are living in fear because they can't get answers about whether their property will be sold from under them.

Mostly senior citizens live in the well-kept community of Terrisan Reste Mobile Home Park, but there are a few younger people and families.

Concerns started Monday when surveyors showed up and started marking off sections of the community.

When the I-Team's Leisa Zigman showed up with a camera crew, the surveyors left.

The seniors say they are concerned the property owner is getting ready to sell, which could leave some people homeless.

"We own the homes, but we pay $370 for the pads and that price covers water, sewer, and trash. Where could we live for only $370 plus phone, electric and gas?" said resident Alice Mack.

According to the St. Louis County assessor's office, the owner of Terrisan Reste is Terrisan MHP. According to the secretary of state's office, the registered agents for Terrisan MHP include Henry Keith II of Bridgeton, and an attorney named Ted Farmer of Michigan. Calls to Mr. Farmer were not returned.

Zigman also reached out to the property manager, the mayor, and the city administrator but did not hear back.

She spoke to an area developer who is hoping to build a nearby shopping center. He said he didn't hire the surveyors.

Zigman will continue to reach out to the property owner in hopes of finding out their future plans.
