TIAWAH — The Rogers County Sheriff’s Office has reopened a case involving a woman who disappeared nearly two decades ago.

A local newspaper reports that Tiawah-area resident Dione Fox was declared missing when she failed to attend a scheduled court appearance in 1996. Authorities in Noel, Missouri, discovered Fox’s abandoned car eight months after she went missing. Fox was 23 when she went missing.

Jerry Smittle with the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office says investigators are searching for Fox’s remains in the Tiawah area.

Investigators with the sheriff’s office, Wagoner County Emergency Management, the state medical examiner’s office and the University of Oklahoma Archaeological Survey are searching the 20-acre property where Fox was last seen.

A search warrant has been issued for the property.
