    Bartlesville Man's Disappearance Still Puzzles Investigators After 5 Years

    In spite of a recent TV news report to the contrary, Bartlesville interim Police Chief Tom Holland said Friday that there are no new breaks in the case of David Lee Rockey, a Bartlesville man who was reported missing more than five years ago.

    “We are carrying David Rockey as an open investigation of this department and the only info we have at this time is that he is missing,” Holland said.

    Rocky was 51 at the time of his disappearance on Aug. 26, 2002.

    A private investigator alleged in a recent news report for KTUL Channel 8 in Tulsa that Rockey was murdered and is buried in a neighboring county

    Private investigator Marlene Rockwell says David was murdered and that she's got the documents that show why.

    "Motive would probably most likely be inter-personal conflict and long term financial gain," Rockwell says.

    But where's the body? Rockwell says it's close to Bartlesville, and wants police to do more.

    "You would have to ask Bartlesville where they stand on this right now."

    Police Chief Tom Holland says everything is being done that can be, and if Rockwell wants to do more, go for it.

    "He is a missing person as far as we're concerned," Holland says. "My message to them, I'm sure she'll see this is you need to dig. If you think you know where he's at, let's dig him up and we'll get the medical examiner to do forensics and determine cause of death we hope and go from there."

    Randy simply wants his dad found, and even prepared a statement addressing his perception of politics in policing.

    "Failing to recognize that the most logical explanation for the disappearance of my father is an abduction or homicide, and failing to act to investigate this case is not only irresponsible but a compromise of the trust placed in law enforcement by the public."

    After reading the article in the Bartlesville newspaper, it seems KTUL news article was misleading. The quote to the EE stated the remark was made about the neighboring county's LE and not directly to the PI.

    “We have had people that have surfaced, including a private investigator, that claim they know the general area as to where Mr. Rockey was placed,” said Holland in response to the television report. “It is not in Bartlesville and it is not even in Washington County. They have involved law enforcement from where they claim the body is located.”

    ~snip~

    “I met with the private investigator and authorities from that jurisdiction and told them that if they felt strongly enough they should dig and attempt to find him,” Holland told the newspaper. “To date no one has done this.”

    Holland said that conversation took place in September.

    “They seem to feel strongly about it, but no one has done anything,” said Holland. “There are ways to go about this in that jurisdiction, but no one has done that.”

    David was last seen at a convenience store halfway between Bartlesville and Tulsa asking for directions to the airport (no reason because he knew exactly how to get to the airport), but his car was later found at the airport. The leads went ice cold from there. As I recall, they could find no proof he ever got on a plane and left Tulsa, also never found him inside/outside the airport from security cameras.

    Found alive and well in South Dakota

    Missing Bartlesville Man Found In South Dakota

    UNDATED -- A man who disappeared without a trace in Bartlesville seven years ago has been found, alive and well and living in another state.

    David Rockey's disappearance in 2002 was a total mystery to police, Rockey's wife of 26 years and his two sons. His family posted flyers all over northeast Oklahoma and a billboard was placed along Highway 75.

    Rockey had told his family he was going for a job interview, but, the company said they had no appointment with him.

    ~snip~

    The News On 6 learned that Rockey was located in Rapid City, South Dakota, and had been living under the radar, working odd jobs. Authorities were located the man when he went to renew his driver's license.

    Before he disappeared, he had retired from Phillips.

    He's expected to return to Bartlesville next week to answer some questions about where he's been and why he left.

    BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) -- The attorney for a Bartlesville woman whose husband resurfaced after going missing for almost seven years says she is considering what to do next.

    ~snip~

    Carlson says Peggy Rockey is "happy that her husband is alive and well" and is trying to "put her life back together."

    Carlson says Peggy Rockey hasn't spoken with David Rockey since he resurfaced and that it's too early to know if the couple might reconcile.

    This POS showed up right before he could be declared legally dead and his wife could get the life insurance $$. He put her through all those years of worry and no child support, etc. & shows up just in time to keep her from getting any $$. Hope she sues him for back child support & alimony.

    No matter what anyone is going through there is no excuse for this crap. There is a whole lot that his wife couldn't do with him missing in action like refinance the house etc. His kids were just abandoned by their father. You might be mad at your spouse but why would you let your kids go through that kind of emotional trauma. It is certainly wrong to put anyone in your family through that...wife and mother included but what kind of jerk who is so involved in the community and boy scouts.

    Leave if you want...I have no problem with that but not without letting anyone know. It is cruel, inhumane, hurtful and just plain evil. Karma is b**ch and he deserves everything he has coming to him.
