GOLDSBY, Oklahoma -- The McClain County Sheriff is seeking the public's help in locating a man who has been missing for a month.

Forty-seven-year-old Bill Dwayne Shipley was last seen July 19 at the Goldsby mobile home park where he lives.

Shipley frequently travels out of state on his job. But when he didn't call to wish his father a happy birthday, his family grew concerned and went to his home.

"We discovered the house was open, and both pickups were missing," says his father, W.K. Shipley. "It is very out of character."

McClain County investigators fear Shipley may be endangered. They've filed search warrants to monitor his cellphone calls and transactions on his credit card. Someone has been using the card.

"We have obtained videos and we are looking at the videos now to see if there's any people of interest in the video that may or may not be bill Shipley," says McClain County investigator Dan Huff.

Anyone with information about Shipley's disappearance should call the McClain County Sheriff or the OSBI.
