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.
Riley said Camp's husband, Leon Camp, last heard from Wendy when she called from Shamrock in Creek County about 5 p.m. Friday to say she would be home in a couple of hours. The three were riding with an acquaintance.
During the ride back, the three who are missing got into an argument with the driver, and she dropped them off at the Wal-Mart in Chandler about 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., Riley said.
Camp is 5 feet 3 inches tall weighing about 200 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing red sweat pants, a red shirt and white Reebok tennis shoes. Camp also walks with a limp.
Britto is 3 feet tall weighing about 60 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink sweat shirt, a blue and black striped shirt, light blue corduroy slacks and tennis shoes.
Kregear is 5 feet 4 inches tall weighing about 130 pounds and has blond hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing acid-wash jeans, a yellow and white striped shirt, black ankle boots and yellow earrings.
Anyone who may have seen the two women and girl get out of a 1985 gray Audi at the Wal-Mart last Friday is asked to call the OSBI's 24-hour hot line at 1-800-522-8017. BIOG: NAME:Archive ID: 505721
