A Bixby family’s desperate search for their missing loved one has the attention of a local firefighter.
He’s donating his own money to help find Kelley Harris.
“It gives me hope. It gives me hope. I mean, we just want to get her home. Some how, some way. We just have to get her home,” said Bob Harris.
His wife vanished on July 3rd
from their Bixby home.
The only clue is when Tulsa police found her car abandoned in the 4500 block of S. Garnett road in the Bristol Park Apartments on July 23rd
. Detectives said they believe there were two people seen the car but they don't believe they are connected to her disappearance.
Bixby police are waiting on results from DNA evidence found her car but since then there have been no signs of Mrs. Harris.
"This is Kelley's case file. It gets bigger everyday,” said Bixby Police Sergeant Andy Choate.
Kelley Harris husband said he hasn’t been able to sleep since his wife went missing in July.
"I can’t sleep in my bed or our bed it's just impossible," said Harris.
Surveillance video showed the Bixby mother bought Fourth of July goods at Wal-Mart and dropped them off at home.
Police said Harris then went to pick up more than $800 cash from a business transaction and then she vanished.
"I still have my hopes up and waiting for her to come home," said her daughter Ashley Shockley.
Police told FOX23 News that Harris had a pattern in her daily life and other than her car there have been no signs of her being alive so they suspect foul play.
"A homicide or an abduction that led to her homicide," said Choate.
A local firefighter who has a side business in marketing wants to remain anonymous but wants to help solve high-profile cases such as Kelley Harris’ disappearance to generate Crime Stoppers tips.
He has teamed up with the Crime Commission to print out postcards with Harris’ information and will send them to neighbors living near the area where Harris’ car was found.
"Any way that we can get the word out to the public in a manner that will increase calls to 596-COPS is very helpful," said Crime Commission Executive Director Carol Bush.
Mrs. Harris’ husband said it’s a relief to know that strangers care about his wife’s case.
"That makes me smile. That gives me hope. Someone is out there and paying attention to what's going on. They are doing what they can. That's an awesome thing,” said Mr. Harris.
Her family knows someone saw something and that they hope someone has the courage to come forward.
"It touched my heart very much and very thankful that someone is listening and paying close attention and someone being generous to help out," said Ashley Shockley.
Kelley Harris’ Crime Stoppers postcard will be the first case to be sent out. Other high-profile cases will also be featured.
The Harris family is pulling money together to raise the Crime Stoppers reward.
