TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) -- A private investigator hired by the family of a missing Northeastern State University student says he suspects foul play in the young man's disappearance.

26-year-old Stephen Adams was last seen December 13th after taking a final exam.

Since then, private investigator Dick Frye says Adams' family has received a threatening telephone call, and Adams and his 1998 white GMC pickup haven't been seen.

Frye says eyewitnesses saw a suspicious-looking man milling around the parking lot of Adams' apartment complex on the morning he disappeared. The man told witnesses near the complex that he worked at a construction site in nearby Keys.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation have labeled the man as a person of interest in the disappearance.
