    I just saw this on the local news. They said he had warrants out for his arrest but didn't say what they are for. Thank you, OkieGranny.

    If meth is involved (and hopefully it isn't) it's anyone's guess as to who, where, when, why.
    He was originally from Freedom, but living in Alva (both are in Woods County). Truck found in Dewey County near Canton Lake, and his arrest warrants are from Dewey County. Wonder why he was in Dewey County.

    ALVA, Okla. &#8211; Scott Beeson says he doesn&#8217;t know what to think about the disappearance of his best friend, Travis Murrow.

    &#8220;I&#8217;m baffled. I&#8217;ve never in my life been associated with anything this bizarre, that a man just up and vanishes,&#8221; said Beeson.

    Murrow is 40 years old and has 4 children.

    ~Snip~

    Murrow&#8217;s pickup truck was found abandoned about four miles west of Canton lake.

    &#8220;Pulled up in front of, not quite to the cattle guard, about 30 foot off the road, just sitting there locked up, nothing suspicious looking about it,&#8221; said Beeson.

    Family offering reward in missing man case

    Murrow’s brother, Trent Murrow, said family members set up a reward on Sunday but have not placed an amount on the reward.

    ~Snip~

    Travis Murrow’s truck was found at an impound lot last week after it was abandoned and towed from west of Canton earlier in the week.

    There are multiple outstanding warrants for Travis Murrow in Dewey County, according to the Dewey County Sheriff’s Office.

    The warrants suggest he has issues with drugs and other unpleasant things, but his family doesn't feel his disappearance has anything to do with the warrants. I am not so sure, but maybe not in the way they are talking about.

    He has been arrested a few times for DUS (Driving Under Suspension) and other small crimes since the heavy charges back in 2009. He shows a lack of judgment and respect for the law, imo. This could mean he hasn't left the world of drugs behind and maybe he met with foul play during such an encounter out in the country before meeting up with the woman he was seeing. I am curious about the text he sent to her and the pings of where it came from when he sent it. I hope they are working on that angle.

    Canton lake is a very rural setting and where his truck was found is very remote. Locked up and setting off to the side of the road as if he parked it then walked away. Since they didn't find him near the truck, one could assume he caught a ride out of the area. It would be logical to look at the girlfriend and others he knew there.

    Suicide is another possibility and maybe they overlooked his body somewhere in that 10 miles of searching.

    Did he actually send that text to the woman? (Was the woman married?) Was someone in the truck with him? Did he meet someone there? Many questions and few answers so far.

    Friends, family search rural western Oklahoma for missing father

    Friends and family of a Woods County man are searching rural areas on horseback near Canton, hoping to find any trace of the father of four who went missing one week ago.

    The last time someone heard from Travis Murrow, 40, was Aug. 24, his ex-wife Christy Murrow said.

    ~Snip~

    Murrow is originally from Freedom but has been living in Alva. He's also a rodeo cowboy and proudly watched his kids ride bulls at a recent event, according to posts on his Facebook page.

    I love it when people underestimate my intelligence and my toughness. Gives me something to laugh at.....

    His next to last post (a meme) said, "Sometimes I have to tell myself it's just not worth the jail time"

    On one of his friend's FB page is a flyer which said he was seen by locals walking in another area, but doesn't say when or where. Sounds like he is a walkaway Joe.

    Trying to track Travis' movements from home to where his truck was found, this is the best I can figure from all the locations mentioned in MSM reports:

    A - Alva, OK
    B - Enid, OK
    C - Fairview, OK
    D - Canton, OK

    [​IMG]

    It's 133 miles or about 2 hours and 25 minutes driving time between A and D. Canton Lake is just to the north of Canton (D), and his truck was found four miles west of the lake.

    They mentioned his phone was "shut off" after taking the missing person report so I wonder when this was done? His pings put him in the Fairview area hours or days after he went missing?

    Travis has still not been found. His family needs some answers and I pray they get them soon!

    Drug deal gone bad?

    I don't want to sound mean but this man obviously has struggled with addiction and has been in trouble with the law...I really don't get how his family & friends can say:
    (from http://kfor.com/2014/09/01/friends-family-searching-for-missing-alva-man/). Sounds like denial to me. I can't imagine he has been the most reliable person before, considering my experience with addicts.

    I understand what you're saying. I know I've read he's had his probs in the past, but doesn't to have appeared to be in any current trouble and was very active in his kid's lives according to facebook posts. I don't know the family personally, but I do hope he's found for his kid's sake. I kept thinking they would check the Casino videos at Canton, since he had a large sum of cash from selling a vehicle? Just don't know how people vanish into thin air like this. So sad for his kiddos.
