Caitlyn Rose Case, age 33, was last seen on August 5, 2022, in Paris, Texas. She vanished as she was making her way from Colorado to Houma, Louisiana.
Caitlyn Rose Case boarded a plane on July 31, 2022, and travelled to Houma, Louisiana, where she intended to buy a car.
Case started her journey back to Colorado from Houma on August 4, 2022, in her car. She reported having trouble with her vehicle’s navigation system and sporadic cell service in some areas while travelling, but she was in constant communication with her family.
In a later journey, Case visited the towns of Mount Pleasant, Gladewater, Lewisville, Gainesville, and Paris while making stops at convenience stores throughout Texas.
The last time Case spoke to her family was on August 5, 2022, when she called her father at around 5:00 pm. She had become disoriented while travelling through rural Texas, and her last known location was on Highway 271 heading north, about 5 miles southwest of Bogata, Texas.
Shortly after 5:00 pm, Case’s phone call was disconnected. That evening and the following day, her family made numerous attempts to get in touch with her without success.
Case continued northward towards Paris, Texas, according to cell tower tracking, and her estimated arrival time was around 6:00 pm.
Her mobile sent a ping to towers south of Paris and in Pattonville, Texas, shortly after 7:00 p.m. Her vehicle was seen leaving Paris on the south loop of Highway 286 at 9:17 p.m., heading northwest to FM 79.
Choctaw County, Oklahoma’s cell towers received her phone’s most recent ping. Her car is thought to have crossed the border into Oklahoma on Highway 271, then turned east on Highway 109, south of Grant, Oklahoma.
Caitlyn Rose Case hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
On August 6, 2022, her family filed a missing person’s report with the Houma Police Department when they couldn’t contact her.
A 2006 black GMC Envoy with the Louisiana licence plate 957FDO was discovered abandoned along a steep embankment on the Kiamichi River near Frogville, Oklahoma, on August 12, 2022.
The car was perched between two tiny trees on the edge of a 75-foot cliff. Case’s two cell phones, red tennis shoes, and other personal items were all present inside the car.
On the evening of August 5, a local witness saw two vehicles enter the property at a high rate of speed, but only one was seen leaving.
Authorities believe that someone other than Case attempted to dispose of her vehicle in the river. It is not believed that Case physically entered Oklahoma.
The circumstances of Caitlyn Rose Case’s disappearance are still unknown, but foul play is strongly suspected. Her case is still open and is currently listed as missing.
