    Circumstances of Disappearance

    Josephine (16) and her younger sister, Joyce (15), from Broken Bow, Oklahoma were staying with an adult male friend of their family, in a Norman apartment in October 1983.

    The friend, reported them missing. He claimed that both Josephine and Joyce ran away from him. He stated that he last saw them when they left to go to the library.

    Neither girl has been seen or heard from since.

    The girls had moved to Norman (in Cleveland County, Oklahoma) after having some problems at home in Broken Bow.

    It is possible that the girls were involved in drugs, but there is no evidence proving a drug connection.

    Their names, birth certificates and social security numbers have not been used since their disappearance. The friend of the family has been interviewed about their disappearance several times.

    Police suspect that foul play was involved.
