Update: Medical examiner confirms remains are those of missing Oklahoma family
UPDATE: 7/3 – The Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed its findings after three bodies were found in a rural area of the Sans Bois Mountains.
Authorities confirmed the bodies are those of 44-year-old Bobby Jamison, 40-year-old Sherilyn Jamison and 6-year-old Madyson Jamison.
Currently, the family’s cause of death is still unknown because the skeletal remains were incomplete.
The manner of death is also unknown.
KINTA, Okla. – Authorities say they believe remains found over the weekend are those of an Oklahoma family that has been missing since 2009.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says hunters found the remains about three miles from where the Jamison family disappeared, in a mountainous area of northern Latimer County.
In 2009, 44-year-old Bobby Jamison, his wife, 40-year-old Sherilyn Jamison and 6-year-old Madyson Jamison disappeared.
The family’s truck was discovered near the Sans Bois Mountains but the family was never found.
Over the span of two days, investigators found the skeletal remains of two adults and one child.
Officials say they did not find any clothing or other evidence to confirm the identities of the remains.
Those bones have been sent to the medical examiner’s office for identification.
Authorities say the remains were found near the area where the family’s truck was discovered four years ago.
