Anniversary of Claremore woman’s disappearance is today
CLAREMORE — The whereabouts of a Claremore woman reported missing by her family a year ago remain unknown, according to her family and police officials.
Pshara Marie Jones, 21, has been missing since Sept. 21, 2015 and the case has grown cold, according to Claremore Police Department Investigator John Singer.
“This is still an active investigation but, unfortunately, we have been unable to develop any new, promising leads in several months,” Singer stated in correspondence.
According to Singer, Jones’ family has not seen or heard from her since she left her residence on Archer Court on a Monday evening last year. Jones left on foot and without a phone, according to police.
Bank records indicate two transactions were made that Monday night, one at a Kum & Go.
The following day, Jones was supposed to pick up medication but never did, her mother Mary Vo said. The Wednesday after she left, Jones failed to show up for work at a pharmacy in town.
Jones transferred money into her bank account prior to her disappearance and her paycheck was deposited a week after she was last seen.
Since her disappearance, her bank account has remained untouched, according to CPD Deputy Chief of Police Charles Downum.
Vo said she waited two weeks before going to police because she thought her daughter would return home, as she had after leaving in the past. Vo said she even left the door unlocked thinking her daughter would return.
She said her daughter suffers from a mental illness requiring medication.
The National Missing Persons Data System reported that Jones is a little over five feet tall and weighs between 120 and 140 pounds. She is African American and Vietnamese with brown, shoulder-length hair. One distinguishing mark is a lump on her right thumb.
“We continue to ask for the public’s help in developing new information,” Singer said.
CPD officials ask that those who know Jones — and have not already spoken to detectives — contact them at 918-341-1212.
