Bixby police confirm two men living in the Bristol Park Apartments are now considered persons of interest in connection with a missing Bixby woman.

Kelley Harris, 49, was last seen in early July. She disappeared just before her son's wedding and the birth of her first grandchild.

She lived near Mingo and 141st and was last seen leaving her house on July 3rd.

Kelley Harris's car was later found at the "Bristol Park Apartments," near 41st and Garnett. Law enforcement went back there on Tuesday night.

Bixby Police had 40 arrest warrants for people in the Bristol Park apartment complex. A majority of the warrants weren't serious (traffic violations), but police say they believe someone with a warrant out might speak up out of fear of going to jail.

More than 50 law enforcers from nine different agencies including the FBI, US Marshals and Tulsa Police went door to door hoping someone would tell them what happened to Harris.

"We need some closure for this family," said Bixby Police Detective Andrew Choate.

She was last seen leaving her home July 3rd. Two weeks later, her car was found at the Bristol Park Apartments. Now, Bixby police are hoping for more answers.

"To reach that one person who does know how Ms. Harris vehicle got here," Choate told FOX23.

Police might've found him. A man came forward with what police say was solid information. Choate says it supports their theory of how the mother disappeared. But they're not saying what the theory is or who they suspect of the crime.

"It's important for us to be able to help the family understand what happened to their wife, their mother, their grandmother."

There is a $3,000 reward for anyone with information. You can call Crime Stoppers at (918) 596- COPS if you have any information and you don't have to leave your name.

I hope they find her safe and sound.. if something else happened her family needs to know... There are too many MISSING people in this town and no one talking. Its disgusting, the lack of respect we have for human life and no one cares until it happens to YOUR family or YOU. Its so terrible.. I pray that all the missing are found and brought home, no matter what condition.
