Two different flyers being posted by two different people but it’s all for one missing person.

Police said Salena Handy was last seen on August 17th.

Handy’s friend Laura Knight said, “It’s necessary to find out where she is, contact her.”

The 35-year-old’s family and friends are passing out flyers and using social media to get the word out.

Knight said, “Keep it going. I have friends that are re-posting it every day, sometimes every few hours.”

FOX23 spoke with her husband, Jimy Handy, Tuesday. He said on August 17th they had drinks at a party and when he went to work near 61st and Lewis she asked for more drinks and he said no.

Jimy Handy said, "Next thing I know she's on the patio. Then she was down the street. I ran to stop her. She wasn't going to stop."

Now, friends, family, and police are trying to find the 35-year-old who’s been missing since August 17th.

Jimy Handy told FOX23 on Tuesday that he fears she may have been picked up by a stranger.

He said on Tuesday, “She didn’t have a phone with her she was walking on the street. I think just a random person said ‘Hey, what’s a pretty girl doing walking.’ So I don’t think they’re going to find anything in the family, in the friends. I think it’s going to end up being some random person.”

Knight said that until Salena is found her friends will continue to pass out flyers.

Knight said, "It's a heavy populated area. I’m just hoping that it (the flyer) will stir up a memory and somebody will know it and remember a detail.”

She was not the only friend FOX23 found passing out flyers. We found another friend passing out different flyers about Salena.

Knight said, "The fact there's another girl out there passing flyers that I've never met speaks to how people care about her."

Knight said she has posted flyers in Tulsa, Jenks, and Broken Arrow.
