Police searching for a missing mother of four are now treating the case as a homicide investigation.

Oklahoma City police Capt. Dexter Nelson said the department's missing persons and homicide divisions are working the Jaymie Adams case jointly.

“Homicide will get involved, in cases like this, because of the length of time she's been missing,” Nelson said Wednesday.

“There's that, and the mysterious circumstances surrounding the disappearance.”

Irven Box, an attorney hired by the missing woman's husband after he was interrogated for five hours, said Jaymie Adams was involved in online prostitution.

“We think all of this may have to do with Craigslist ... or someone she met there,” Box said. “We think there's a strong possibility this may also be linked to prostitution.”

Missing since Dec. 10

Jaymie Adams, of Blanchard, who is reportedly pregnant with her fifth child, was reported missing in the pre-dawn hours of Dec. 10 by her husband, Justin Adams.

According to an Oklahoma City police report filed Dec. 10, Justin Adams met an officer at 5 a.m. that day at the McDonald's restaurant near SE 29 and Douglas Boulevard.

He told the responding officer his wife was supposed to meet “a friend” at the restaurant some time after 11 p.m. Dec. 9. He said she sent a text message when she arrived at the restaurant, but that was the last he heard from her.

Justin Adams told the officer he didn't know the friend's name.

The officer reported the husband became “very agitated when I asked him further questions” about whom his wife was meeting at the McDonald's.

“Just leave,” he reportedly told the officer. “I'll have somebody else make the report.”

The report also states that Justin Adams asked the officer for a “slim Jim” tool so he could break into his wife's vehicle, which was in the parking lot.
