Two missing teenage girls are believed to be among seven people found dead in Oklahoma on Monday, local law enforcement officials said.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol issued a endangered no recommendation on Monday for 14-year-old Ivy Webster and 16-year-old Brittany Brewer. Officials said they may have been traveling with 39-year-old Jesse McFadden. The missing person alert was canceled later that day.
Webster, Brewer and McFadden were likely among the dead found Monday afternoon in Henrietta, Okmulgee County Sheriff Eddie Rice said during a news conference carried by the CBS affiliate KWTV. Authorities are waiting for the medical examiner to identify the bodies.
“We believe we’ve found the people, we’re just waiting for confirmation,” Rice said.
The other four victims have not yet been released.
McFadden was convicted of raping, state records show. He was released from prison in October 2020.
