Tulsa County deputies looking for 'person of interest' in missing trio case​

The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office is looking for three people in what they're calling a "bizarre" missing persons case.

The sheriff's office issued a Silver Alert on Tuesday for 76-year-old Jack Grimes. They're also looking for his friend 59-year-old Dwayne Selby.

The two friends were last seen Friday heading to a horse show in Texas but were supposed to be back in Turley on Monday.

Family members say the two men were seen eating at a cafe in Purcell around 6:30 Friday night, but the friend who had their tickets to the horse show in Fort Worth says they never showed up.

They were driving Grimes's 2001 maroon 4-door Ford Taurus with Oklahoma tag ETW-614.

Family members say Selby's mother, 80-year-old Glenda Parton went to search for her son in Turley on Monday night and hasn't been seen since.

Deputies say her car, a red Kia Rio, was found on the side of Highway 75 near 56th Street North on Tuesday afternoon.

The Pryor Creek Police Department issued a Silver Alert for Parton.

The sheriff's office announced Wednesday afternoon that they were looking for a "person of interest" in the case.

They released a photo of a man Parton met with at a local business Monday evening before she went missing.

The man pictured has dark hair and was wearing a camo baseball cap, gray jacket, blue jeans and dark-colored shoes.

Woman vanishes in Tulsa County while searching for missing son, Sheriff's Office says​

A Pryor woman who was last known to be searching for her missing son in the Turley area has now disappeared herself, and deputies are now searching for information about a man who was seen with her, the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office reported.

Pryor Creek police issued a Silver Alert for Glenda "Cookie" Parton, 80, on Wednesday after her vehicle was found abandoned near U.S. 75 and 56th Street North on Tuesday.

She was last seen on Monday searching for her 59-year-old son, Dwayne Selby.

Parton was spotted on surveillance footage Monday evening at a Tulsa-area business with an unknown man, the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office said in a news release Wednesday evening.


Selby and his friend Jack Grimes, 76, also the subject of a Silver Alert, were supposed to return to Tulsa County on Monday after traveling to a horse show in Fort Worth, Texas, on Friday.

Grimes' family members told detectives he never called to let them know he had arrived in Fort Worth, which was abnormal.

No one has been able to reach either man since Friday. Grimes requires medication to manage his diabetes.

The men were traveling in a maroon 2001 four-door Ford Taurus with Oklahoma license plate ETW-614.

Pictured is Parton and a man the Sheriff's Office said is now a person of interest.

The family told NewsChannel 8 that the man seen with Parton is a ranch hand.

Wow this one sounds downright strange. I almost would have to think the two missing men have no connection to the fact she is missing?
That's my initial instinct as well. But is it just a coincidence that she goes out looking for her son and disappears? Could the POI have knowledge of the disappearance of the other two and want to keep her away? I know this sounds far fetched. But what a coincidence. Especially with a POI! Could an 80 year old woman go out and get lost while looking for her son? Sure. But to have a POI involved, and to have her vehicle abandoned with her not near it? Strange.

Oh believe me I get it. I think you have a clue how I think. I don't believe much in too much odd coincidence in crimes... I am trying to figure how it can all tie together... We would have to know more of the players... The men were headed to a horse show... The missing man was supposedly a ranch hand. Ranch, horses... He was seen with or near the woman... Did he also know/meet the men, send them on a horse show trip... Go with them...? I don't know...

It is STRANGE.

And.... What did they do with the man? Let him go? Arrest him? Still talking to him??

Two abandoned cars, three missing people... WTH?

The two were supposed to be traveling in Grimes’ maroon 2001 four-door Ford Taurus, which security personnel located a couple of miles deep in Mohawk Park, 5701 E. 36th St. North, about 4 a.m. Thursday.

Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Casey Roebuck said the vehicle had several violation stickers affixed to its exterior, which should be helpful to detectives trying to determine how long the vehicle had been there.

The vehicle’s discovery greatly narrows the scope of the search for the men, Roebuck said, but many pieces are still missing from the big-picture puzzle.

Selby’s mother, 80-year-old Glenda “Cookie” Parton, is the subject of another Silver Alert that was issued Wednesday after she disappeared Monday while looking for her son, deputies said.

Parton was spotted on surveillance footage at an undisclosed business that evening with a man initially unknown to deputies. Her vehicle was found abandoned on the side of U.S. 75 near the 56th Street North exit on Tuesday.

“They arrived at the business in her car, together, but then within hours of the time that video was taken, no one was able to reach her, and she completely disappeared,” Roebuck said.

So the man was actually with her in her car when they went to a business... I thought the pictures looked somewhat like a grocery store but it was hard to tell. The thought comes that someone had the 80 year old under their control or her son and his friend under his control and told her he would kill them and he forced her to go get money from a bank or ATM? Not unheard of...

I am still very confused by this story and don't have a handle on it either... There seems to be info missing as there always is and it makes it harder to get a picture of what was going on here...

We all know Tulsa isn't a small area. I did a map search and I think the starting point is a few blocks away from (farther from Mohawk Park) 75. Then I mapped to Mohawk Park. Coincidence? Did she know where to look for some (innocent) reason?
So do I have this right, that even though the men were headed to Texas, both cars were found in Oklahoma basically in their hometown or nearby areas?

I also wonder what type of horse show this was. A mention is made of tickets but I tend to think of for instance a show and auction... Were they going to buy horses and in that case, would they have had a bundle of cash on them...? Not unheard of I don't think when bidding on livestock... I have no idea why they would be in a park where the car was found but perhaps someone was with them and forced them in there...

Am I way off base on locales here and what this is looking like? It's a hard one to follow...

From what I'm reading I believe my map points are correct.

I do too. She was pretty close to where their car was found in the park. They were also seen in a restaurant right but their car was found at the park after that. Just having trouble trying to figure out what exactly was going on here in this case. If there even is a case. I mean as to any perpetrator...

I am baffled by the horse show part in that they were traveling in a Ford Taurus! If they were buying a horse/horses, they would be in a truck and trailer!

Has there been any indication on what TYPE of horse show? I didn't see anything indicating they were looking to buy.
There are horse shows like dog shows. For example, this Appaloosa show starts today in Fort Worth - World Championship Appaloosa Show - Horse * Pet * Livestock
