OKFUSKEE COUNTY, Okla. - Okfuskee County officials continue to search for Michelle Lea Davis.

The 31-year-old woman is described as 5 foot 3 inches tall, weighing about 142 pounds. She was last seen when she left her job in Tulsa sometime Thursday night and never made it home.

Authorities found her vehicle and clothing on Hwy 62, two miles east of her home in Paden. The car was locked, the keys were missing and there was a flat tire, police said.

The sheriff said nobody, including her husband of eight years, knows where she is.

Davis' husband was the one who alerted authorities of her disappearance.

Sam Deal, a Paden resident, said it was always a quiet and nice little town.

"We just heard that she was missing and that's all I've heard," said Deal.

Posters are showing up all across Paden that have Davis' picture and information on them.

Davis' mother, who lives in Mustang, is worried about her daughter.

"She has a zest for life, she would not leave her children," said mother Barnie Mooneyham. "If she has a breath in her she will find a way to get back to her children."

Police have used everything from aircrafts to ATVs to find Davis, but the search continues.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Okfuskee Country Sheriff's Office at (918) 623-1128.
