I've found no mention of when the Jamison's were reported missing, or if finding the empty car was the beginning of the investigation.
The truck was found 8 days later by hunters in the area.
Also inside the truck were their IDs, wallets and a substantial amount of cash.A search of the area, which is said to have a "triple canopy, a lot of woods," is planned for Friday, October 23rd.
"It didn't look like to me that they got out and walked, it just looked like they got out and that was it. They didn't take their coats, it was kind of cold that day, they didn't take their cell phones, of course they didn't take their dog," said Sheriff Beauchamp.
Sheriff Beauchamp says investigators have looked into the Jamison's past and there doesn't appear to be any signs that they were in trouble or looking to start a new life. He says there's no obvious reason why they disappeared.
In May, Bobby Dale Jamison filed a civil suit against his parents Bobby Dean and Scarlett Jean Jamison or more than $10,000 for the loss of money to which he said he was entitled when his father sold the family gas station.
Bobby Jamison took out a protective order against his father in May, but authorities said it has been dismissed and appears unrelated to the disappearance of the younger Jamison and his family.
In the suit, the missing Jamison alleges his father enticed him to work for free at the Oklahoma City gas station, but with the understanding that one day, the son would have a half-interest in the station when he was older.
