LATIMER COUNTY -- A massive ground search effort for a Eufaula family missing since October 8 in Latimer County has been scaled back, according to a press release by Sheriff Israel Beachamp.

Beachamp says the search will be continued on a smaller scale, and the sheriff's office intends to continue investigating leads until the Jamison family is found. 

The search for Bobby, Sherrilynn, and Madyson Jamison began when the family's pickup truck was found on a well pad in Latimer County's Sans Bois Mountains on October 17.

The family was apparently looking at land to purchase.

The vehicle was found locked with Madyson's small dog inside along with personal items including cell phones, clothing, cash and other items that give the appearance that the family was planning on returning to the vehicle, the release states.

"This is a rural area with few residents and many oilfield locations," Beauchamp said. "The terrain is a very rugged mountainous region with thick trees, vegetation and wildlife, with hunting cabins and few year-round residents."

The Latimer County Sheriff's Office has utilized aerial drones, fixed wing aircraft with heat imaging devices, air, ground and HRD trained dogs, horse teams, and off-road vehicles but have not located the Jamison family yet.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has printed posters of the family that have been posted in this area and other communities.

There have been 330 plus volunteers and trained Search And Rescue personnel combing a 10-square mile area trying to find the Jamison family or clues that may lead them in the direction that the family may have traveled.

Beauchamp said that numerous agencies have assisted in the difficult search including Latimer County Emergency Management, Latimer County Commissioners and employees, Oklahoma Forestry, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Federal Bureau of Investigation, The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, over a dozen local fire departments, numerous search dog teams, search and rescue teams, local law enforcement agencies, Tribal agencies, SW ambulance service, and many volunteers including horse, mule, ATV and foot searchers.
