TURLEY, Oklahoma - An 80-year-old Oklahoma woman has disappeared while looking for her missing son and authorities are searching for an unidentified person of interest, the Tulsa County Sheriff confirmed.
Glenda "Cookie" Parton was last seen with a man at a business in the Turley, Oklahoma, area on Monday evening, the department tweeted along with surveillance photos of the man.
