OSBI Seeks Help Finding Missing 26-Year-Old Garvin County Woman
Authorities are looking Thursday for a missing 26-year-old woman from Garvin County.
The OSBI confirmed to News 9 that authorities think Challan Bailey is with 30-year-old Cade Humphrey. Authorities said Humphrey is considered armed and dangerous.
Challan Bailey was last seen around lunch time Wednesday in Union City.
Bailey was discovered missing after Humphrey missed a court date Wednesday related to assault and battery on an officer.
A warrant has been issued for his arrest in connection with failing to appear. Garvin County prosecutors have also filed a misdemeanor case against Humphrey on Thursday on suspicion of threatening to perform acts of violence.
Bailey’s mother said Humphrey began sending her daughter text messages threatening her and her family around Thanksgiving.
Deputies searched Bailey’s home, about one mile east of Pauls Valley.
“Her Christmas tree was tore up, the girls room was tore up and her bedroom was tore up,” said Shelby Jarrett, Bailey’s mother. “There was stuff scattered all over the living room. They believe that she didn't go willingly."
This isn't Humphrey's first run-in with the law.
In 2007, he was charged in Custer County with domestic strangulation and kidnapping in Weatherford.
“It is scary because he is also a recovering addict that I believe is probably using again and that worries me,” said Jarrett.
Court records also show Humphrey has additional charges in Garvin County on suspicion of violating a protective order. Two protective orders have been filed against him in Garvin County, neither of which was from Bailey.
The two were last seen Wednesday in a 2004 Grand Marquis in Union City with Oklahoma tag “EZL920.”
"Please bring my daughter back home, her daughters miss her so much,” said Jarrett. “We just want our Challan back, we miss her so much.”
Jarrett said Bailey has Crohn's disease and likely doesn't have her medication. She does have an important doctor appointment Friday.
If anyone has seen Bailey or has any information about her whereabouts, you’re asked to contact the OSBI at (800) 522-8017 or email@example.com.
