The family of two women and a 6-year-old girl reported missing last Friday fears one of the women may die if she doesn't receive her medication soon for multiple sclerosis, state and Oklahoma City authorities said Wednesday.
Wendy Camp, 23; her daughter, Cynthia Britto, 6; and Camp's sister-in-law, Lisa Renee Kregear, 22, all of northwest Oklahoma City, were last seen at a Wal-Mart store in Chandler, Oklahoma City police Lt. John Riley said.
"Our main concern is that Wendy suffers from MS, and she has been off her medication since last Friday. Her doctor advises us that she is in a life-threatening situation. If she is found, she needs to be rushed to the nearest hospital," Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Kym Koch said.
Riley said police suspect foul play because family members told them the two women, especially Camp, were careful about letting family members know their whereabouts.
Also, Camp did not have her medicine with her Friday, and she never misses taking her daily medication, Riley said. Camp's daughter was taught how to dial a telephone and whom to call in case of emergencies because of her mother's illness, Riley said.
"This is so out of character for these women," Koch said.
Oklahoma City police took the initial missing persons report from Camp's family and then passed the information on to the OSBI, Koch said.
Koch said OSBI agents and Creek County sheriff's deputies are working on the case.
