Developmentally Disabled Woman Courtney Glasscock Missing In Rural Oklahoma

Oklahoma police are looking for a 27-year old woman with a developmental disability who has been missing for nearly a week.

Courtney Glasscock, who lives with her sister in Barnsdall, a rural community 40 miles northwest of Tulsa, was last seen by family members on Sept. 16.

"They saw her at 10:30 Sunday night and at 7:30 Monday morning, they got up [and] she was gone," Osage County Undersheriff Lou Ann Brown told The Huffington Post.

Glasscock's sister Virginia Glasscock reported her missing to the Osage County Sheriff's Office, and authorities have entered her into the National Crime Information Center as a missing person.

"It appears there is a pair of her shoes missing. Other than that, we're not sure if she took anything," Brown said.

According to Brown, Glasscock is developmentally about 10 years old. "We don't know her capabilities, but her family said they are comfortable that she would be able to tell someone her address, but not necessarily take them there," she said.

Family members from Texas have traveled to Oklahoma to help search for Glasscock. Her sister told the Barnsdall Times, that Glasscock is friendly and talkative.

"She will be friends with anybody," Virginia Glasscock said. "If someone comes up to her and says, 'Hi, Courtney, I'm your friend,' she believes it."

Brown said authorities do not suspect foul play. "We don't have anything that we think is a potential crime scene," the undersheriff said. "It does not appear there was any kind of struggle or anything."

Glasscock is 5-foot-4 inches tall, weighs 130 pounds, and has blue eyes and blonde hair. She speaks softly and is hard of hearing. She was last seen wearing a light blue T-shirt with a small American flag and army-green shorts.

"You would think she would not make it very far, but we had a similar situation a few years ago and located the person in Holly Springs, Mississippi. Fortunately, she was alive and well but you never know," Brown said.

She added, "We feel that the more people who are made aware that she is missing, the better chance we have of locating her."

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Courtney Glasscock is asked to contact the Osage County Sheriff's Office at 918-287-3131 or any local law enforcement agency.
