YUKON, Okla. -- A metro family has mounted a desperate search for their loved one.

Billy Wallace, a 65-year-old salesman from Yukon disappeared while returning from a business trip to Indianola in Pittsburg County, authorities said.

"We think he got lost, that he missed his turn going back up home to Indian Nations," Bill's wife, Kathy Wallace said. "And we think he just took a wrong turn and lost his way and we don't know if he's been in an accident or if he had a problem he stopped and asked somebody for directions and they've kidnapped him or hijacked, we don't know."

Due to Wallace being a diabetic and suffering from high blood pressure, authorities said he could be in danger.

"The last time he was seen was Thursday about 8:30 or 8:45 and he has not been seen or heard from since then," OSBI Spokeswoman, Jessica Brown said.

Wallace was last seen driving his black, 2002 Pontiac Sunfire with a sunroof. The license plate tag is 155-NBC.

If you have information on Wallace's whereabouts, please call the OSBI at 1-800-522-8017 or the Pittsburgh County Sheriff's Office at 918-423-5858.
