    OK - Shirley Clift, 25, Hennessey, Nov 1980

    I found this one reading on Charley today, and I thought it was interesting, especially that the case has gone cold after the pd claimed to have some evidence that indicated they knew what happened.

    charley link has more info than Doe does.

    Shirley Clift
    Missing since November 1980 from Hennessey, Kingfisher County, Oklahoma
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Vital Statistics

    * Age at Time of Disappearance: 25 years old

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Shirley Clift was a young mother when she disappeared without a trace in 1980, leaving behind a 1-year-old daughter.
    The last time Shirley Clift was seen, she was leaving a baby-sitter's home in Hennessey with her husband, Gary Clift, in his car.
    Two days later, Gary Clift reported his wife missing. He told authorities she left with a ''group of Mexican men'' the night before.
    A missing person report was also filed by her mother.
    Nine years later a check was made on Shirley Clift's Social Security number for any activity. There was none. Gary Clift was then located in New Mexico, and agreed to speak to deputies , telling them that Shirley Clift wasn't missing. Instead, he said he knew where they could find her - buried 5 feet underground in a Kingfisher County river bank.
    Clift said an argument escalated and Shirley Clift slapped him across the face. The statement said he struck her back, hitting her in the head.
    He claims his wife then jumped out of the car, which was traveling about 50 mph. When he found her, he said, she was unconscious and not breathing. He returned to his Hennessey apartment, where he realized she was dead. Clift said he panicked and took her body to the banks of Turkey Creek and buried her.
    The creek was searched, however all that was found was a button.
