Battle emerges over missing Eufaula woman's son

MCINTOSH COUNTY, Okla. — Quick facts:

  • Peggy McGuire has been missing since November.
  • Her mother has filed for rights to see her grandchild.
  • The child's father filed for paternity rights and said the woman should not see the child.

Court records are uncovering a new battle following the disappearance of a McIntosh County Woman.

Peggy McGuire has not been seen since November.

In a lawsuit, family members said they believe McGuire may be deceased, and her mother is asking for visitation to see her grandson.

McGuire dropped her son off at school and was last seen at her home in Stidham.

Her mother, Betty Davis, has filed a petition for grandparents’ rights to see her seven-year-old grandson.

Davis filed documents on January 19th that say she believes her daughter is deceased, and that she has not seen the child since Peggy disappeared.

The documents also claim that the grandson could suffer physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father, Thomas Ryan McIntosh, without court-ordered visitation.

The move comes after McIntosh filed paternity documents seeking custody of his son.

In the filing, McIntosh claims McGuire abandoned their son. He also asks for her to pay for medical expenses.

Davis denied that McGuire abandoned the child in a counterclaim.

McIntosh’s attorneys said he has requested that Davis not see her grandson because of comments she made previously.
