NOW: Missing Moms Are Victims of ‘Foul Play’?

( – In a baffling circumstance that shook up an entire state, authorities suspect that two mothers who vanished while on their way to pick up their children in Oklahoma may have been victims of foul play.

27-year-old Veronica Butler and 39-year-old Jilian Kelly were last spotted together in a vehicle abandoned in a rural part of Texas County, Oklahoma, close to the Kansas border.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said in an update, “Based on the information obtained from the victim’s vehicle, our investigators believe there was evidence to indicate foul play.”

The bureau had earlier announced that they were investigating the “suspicious disappearance” of the two women who failed to reach their children’s pickup location.

Women’s’ car was discoverеd on the side of Highway 95 and Road L in Tеxas County, Oklahoma, approximately 40 miles south of Elkhart, Kansas.

Yet, investigations are ongoing, but no arrests have been made.

According to Tim Singеr, a pastor at the Hugoton Assembly of God, both mothers are active members of church communities in Hugoton, Kansas.

“Please pray that Jillian and her friend Veronica are safe and that they are found quickly,” the church wrote in a Facebook post. “God please bring these women home to their families that are so worried about them.”

The Texas County Sheriff’s Department issued an endangered missing advisory, which shared images of Butler and Kelly, identifying both as “at-risk,” but did not provide further details regarding the circumstances of their disappearance.

Both women had distinct tattoos, Butler had a Chinese symbol on her left forearm and a sunflower on her left shoulder, while Kelly had a butterfly tattoo on her left forearm.
