DEL CITY, Okla. - A family is desperate for answers after their loved one vanished on Christmas Eve.

Family and police are looking for 21-year-old Drake Newton of Del City.

Newton’s family says he was looking forward to spending Christmas at home.

That’s why they’re so worried something awful has happened to him, and they’re asking for the public’s help.

Drake's family says he’s a big family guy.

“You just can't break that kind of love between a mom and her baby, no matter how old they get,” Tammy Haralson said.

Haralson should’ve been celebrating Christmas with her son, 21-year-old Drake Newton.

Instead, she’s passing out flyers asking for help to find him.

Drake was off work this week and was supposed to be at his mother's home on Christmas Eve.

He never made it.

“He’s my everything, he's a great son, this just isn't like him,” Haralson said.

There was no way to get ahold of him.

His phone had been broken for a few days.

“I was so worried about him not having a cell phone so I actually bought him one, and it was under the Christmas tree waiting for him,” Haralson said.

His family was waiting too.

They’ve reached out to his friends, desperate for answers.

But no one has heard from him.

“We’ve sent out Facebook messages, we've notified all of his friends, everyone is looking,” Haralson said.

He was last seen Wednesday around 2 p.m. at the Almonte apartments near SW 59th and May.

He was visiting a family friend on his way to his mom’s house, about 15 minutes from there.

Drake was driving a 2005 white GMC Sierra pickup truck with tag number 307AVU.

No one has found it either.

“I try to think positive and keep hope and faith and say a lot of prayers, but when you get a gut feeling that something is wrong, a mother's intuition, that's what's happening with me, something just isn't right,” Haralson said.

She’s praying for a miracle, hoping her son knows there are so many people who want him home.

Anyone with any information on where Drake is should call Oklahoma City Police.
