OSBI, Tahlequah Authorities Hoping to Solve 9-Year-Old Case

Posted: Updated:

The picture is of a young man, his future still bright, not stolen. And if he were alive today, Stephen Adams would be 35.

"Friday, December 13th marks the 9 year anniversary of Stephen's disappearance," said Tahlequah police chief Nate King.

He was last seen near the campus of NSU where he had just taken a final.

"He made a phone call to his girlfriend when he left the NSU campus and told her that he was giving a man a ride to Keys," said OSBI Special Agent Vicky Lyons.

Stephen was never seen again, although his truck did surface.

"The people who found the truck stole the contents of the truck," said Lyons.

Those people have been ruled out as suspects in Stephen's disappearance, although OSBI does have persons of interest.

"Can't identify them at this point because it is still an ongoing investigation," said Lyons.

Which brings us to the motive of the press conference; spread the word that it's time for someone to speak out.

"Knowing someone did something and proving someone did something are two different things and we need just a few, few pieces of information to help complete this case," said King.

Someone out there is hoping this will all go away, but there's someone else with an equal determination to see it through.

"Well, people think it goes cold and that nobody's interested in it anymore, but we continue to remain interested in any leads that come in," said Lyons.

A $5,000 reward is being offered in the case. If you have any information call the OSBI at 1-800-522-8017.
