The skeletal remains of a missing Eufaula family found by hunters in November have been positively identified, the Oklahoma medical examiner reported Thursday.
The remains of Madyson Stormy Jamison, Sherrilynn Leighann Jamison and Bobby Dale Jamison have been identified. However, the cause and manner of their deaths are undetermined, said Amy Elliott, spokeswoman for the state medical examiner’s office.
The remains were discovered by hunters, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation reported at the time.
“The area was very rugged and mountainous, making the search very difficult and time consuming,” Gary Perkinson, assistant special agent with Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, had said then.
Bobby and Sherrilynn Jamison and their 6-year-old daughter, Madyson, disappeared in October 2009 while looking for a plot of land for sale in the Sans Bois Mountains in northern Latimer County.
Eight days after they were last seen alive, Bobby Jamison’s pickup was found abandoned at a well site. His wallet, Sherrilynn Jamison’s purse, a cellphone, a GPS unit, clothing and a bank bag stuffed with $32,000 were found in the pickup. The family dog was in pickup, barely alive.
Perkinson said the remains were found less than three miles from where the pickup was discovered. Fallen leaves potentially obscured the bodies when the area was searched in 2009, he said.
