Husband continues to search for missing Chickasha woman

Chickasha_It's been nearly two weeks now since a Chickasha man says his wife disappeared without a trace. Jo Ann Stephens was last seen Tuesday evening leaving her house. Her husband says she drove off in a pickup truck with only a half a tank of gas, and her driver's license. He says her purse sat at home with $50 in cash still tucked inside her wallet.

Authorities have been looking for Stephens since she vanished, but so far there have been no signs of her or the truck. So her husband Terry is taking the lead in her search party -- exhausting every place he can think of within a 200 mile radius. But now that she's been missing for nearly two weeks, he's frightened that their search for her may be waning...

"The neighbor next door said she left about two or three o'clock and that's the last anybody's seen of her," Terry Stephens said. "If she was going anywhere, she usually took her purse. The only other thing that I can think of was she might have just been going to run to the grocery store and just took her driver's license in case she got pulled over and maybe just put a ten dollar bill in her pocket."

Stephens says search teams have looked from highways to Lake Chickasha, and Saturday he went out to the Wichita Mountains himself trying to find her. "I just can't do nothing," he said. "I have to do something, so I'm basically just searching on my own. I don't know, I'm a point where I don't know what else to do."

He says even though the police don't expect foul play in her disappearance, he's not so sure. "The police think that maybe she just took off, but I don't think that's the case," he said. "If that was the case she would have called someone by now just to let us know she was alright, somebody. Because she'd have to know that people are looking for her and are worried about her. I know my wife and I know she would do that, she wouldn't just leave it out like this where nobody knew anything."

He says all he wants is for his wife to come home safe, because right now he remains lost while she's still missing. "I don't know. I'm just at a point where I don't know where to turn to go to now," he said.

Stephens wants your help looking out for Jo Snn or her truck -- which is a 2000 maroon Chevy Silverado with Oklahoma tag numbers: QZA-191. If you see the truck or Stephens call the police.
