NORMAN, Oklahoma -

Next Friday marks a milestone, for an Oklahoma family, that no family would want.

Glenda Peterson was 40 years old when she disappeared after a Fourth of July celebration at Lake Thunderbird, 17 years ago.

Family members say Peterson was last seen riding in a dark pickup truck on Highway 9 with a strange man who wore a dark mustache.

Brandy Morton is Glenda Peterson's niece and has spearheaded a social media campaign that has turned up several recent leads on Facebook.

"Somebody knows what happened," said Morton. "We just need a little piece of information that brings everything together."

This Saturday, there will be a balloon launch to remember Glenda Peterson. It begins around noon at Andrews Park in Norman.

Norman police confirm they opened a cold case into Peterson's disappearance several months ago.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Clay Bolin at 405-217-7774.

    The media received an open invitation by Norman Police to view that alleged assault video of OU running back Joe Mixon. But, it was made clear no cameras or any other recording devices are allowed. So that means the public won't be allowed to see it yet, and a media law expert calls that an absurd twisting of the Open Records Law.More >>
