Cold case: OSBI still asking for leads in mysterious disappearances

Local

CARTER COUNTY, Okla. (KFOR) – Although it has been eight years since two young Oklahomans disappeared, officials say they still need information to help them solve the case.

Family members say 17-year-old Molly Miller and 21-year-old Colt Haynes disappeared July 8, 2013 after riding in a car with a friend, later identified as James Conn Nipp.

Police say Nipp was driving that car, which spun out in front of a police car. Nipp allegedly led authorities on a chase through Love County and eventually got away.

Two weeks later, the car was found abandoned in Love County, but Miller and Haynes were never located.

“Molly and Colt were calling several friends asking for a ride, asking for water; saying that they were lost somewhere near Oswald Road, which is where the pursuit actually ended,”  OSBI Director Stan Florence told KFOR in 2016.

From there, the trail went cold.

“Unfortunately, virtually every lead that has come in has led us to a dead end,” said Florence at the time.

Although Nipp was connected to the case, he was never charged in the pair’s disappearance. He was ultimately convicted of running from law enforcement officers, and was released from prison.

Eight years after their disappearance, authorities and family members are still searching for Molly Miller and Colt Haynes.

OSBI officials say they follow up on every lead, but they are asking for new tips. Authorities stress that you can remain anonymous.

If you have any information on the case, call the OSBI at 1-800-522-8017.
