A family needs answers after their loved one disappeared in Okmulgee County.

Addison “Add” Waddell hasn’t been seen or heard from since June 24, 2018.

"It's like he fell off the face of the earth," said Okmulgee County Investigator Aaron Swayze.

Waddell, 56, is described as a white man, 5-feet-11-inches tall, 165 pounds with white hair and blue eyes.

Investigators are also looking for Nacole "Nikki" Bain Spears. They said she could be the last person who saw or spoke with Waddell. They also said she may now have blue hair.

Waddell's family told investigators he was supposed to be making a trip to North Carolina to move home. They spoke with him on the phone a few days ago but lost contact.

Swayze said Waddell has lived and worked in Okmulgee County for years as a ranch hand. Waddell's family attorney said he breeds and barrel races horses for a living.

People who know him are commenting on Facebook, saying, "He is an amazing horse trainer. Great guy." Another comment mentions just seeing him at Walmart before he left for his trip, saying they had a "long nice visit."

And Ginger McGovern says, "Add is such a great guy. Praying he's found safe and sound."

Waddell’s truck was found wrecked and abandoned in the southern part of the county. Swayze said they don't know if any other vehicle was involved in the crash.

Investigators said he could be anywhere.

"Right now, anything's possible. We haven't ruled out anything," said Swayze.

Anyone with information about either person is asked to call the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office at 918-756-4311 or the Tip Line at 918-516-8332.
