LATIMER COUNTY -- Another search of a Green Country mountainside Saturday didn't turn up any new clues in the disappearance of a missing Eufaula family.

Bobby and Sherilynn Jamison and their six-year-old daughter, Madyson, haven't been seen since October 9th.

As investigators continue looking for leads, the family's loved ones are getting more and more worried.

"I hate the fact knowing that we might all end up going to funerals, but if that's God's plan, then that's God's plan," said Charla Heffley, Bob Jamison's cousin.

Volunteers have spent the past two days scouring Panola Mountain in rural Latimer County, where the family's abandoned truck was found.

"A lot of worry, wondering if they're still alive, wondering why they can't find them. I'm just praying to God, to everybody, that they are alive and that they can come back home," said Connie Kokotan, Sherilynn Jamison's mother.

Kokotan says her daughter's family loved the outdoors, and the Latimer County sheriff says they were looking to buy 40 acres of land in the area where they disappeared.

Kokotan also says investigators are looking for a man who lived with the family last summer in their Eufaula home.

"Nothing makes sense. I don't even understand why they were up that far, away from their home," said Connie Kokotan.

The sheriff says that part of the county is very dangerous, with rocky terrain and thick trees. It's very easy to get lost.

Kokotan is praying her daughter, granddaughter, and son-in-law are simply somewhere else and hopes someone, somewhere, has that crucial bit of information that will solve the mystery.

"I can't understand why this has happened to them and I'm hoping that they can be returned safely home," said Connie Kokotan.

Saturday marked the beginning of the black-powder deer hunting season, and the sheriff says that will make it even more dangerous for search crews to look in the mountain.

  • Bobby Jamison is 44, 6'3", weighs 170 pounds and has brown hair and eyes. He has a back disability and may slouch when he stands. 
  • Sherilynn Jamison is 40, 5'07", weighs 105 pounds and has brown hair and eyes. 
  • Madyson Jamison is 6-years-old, has blonde hair and has missing baby teeth in the front of her mouth.

Anyone with information can call the Latimer County Sheriff's Office at 918-465-2161.
