Police: Missing teen’s car found on Edmond street

EDMOND — Police have released more information about a missing teen’s last known actions and the location of  her vehicle.

In a previous report, Oklahoma City Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said the agency’s Missing Persons Unit is asking for the public’s help locating Anne Josette Hill, 16, a white female with brown hair, brown eyes, standing about 5-feet, 4-inches and weighing about 120 pounds.

Wardlow said Hill was last seen April 10 in the north Oklahoma City/Edmond area.

Jenny Monroe, spokeswoman for the Edmond Police Department, said last week, on Wednesday, the agency received a call from a person who had seen a flier and recognized the vehicle.

Monroe said the vehicle, a white Monte Carlo, was found in the 700 block of Rockridge Circle, where Oklahoma City Police Officers picked it up.

Monday morning, Wardlow released the Oklahoma City Police Department’s missing persons report filed April 12. The report stated the teen, a sophomore honor student at Casady High School, lives in Piedmont.

Hill’s mother told the officer she last saw her daughter during the evening of April 10 and last spoke with her during the evening of April 11 via a text message.

She said her daughter was not happy about not being able to stay out with her friends any longer, the officer stated. She said Anne was going to work out at a gym that Friday morning; the gym verified she did show up, the officer stated.

The officer stated a male said he last spoke with Anne at 2200 hours that evening about going to the movies; he last saw her at a McDonald’s at about 1600 hours that Friday. He said she had been hanging around some bad people and he was concerned, the officer stated.

A second male said the previous night, he and Anne were at his brother’s residence in Edmond watching movies, the officer stated.

He said she left alone after the movie ended and he did not know where she went or who she went with, the officer stated. He said his brother lives close to the university but was unsure exactly where. He did not know what she was wearing, the officer stated.

Family members have created several Web pages to assist in the effort to find their loved one. On Facebook, there’s “Find Anne Hill,” which contains an image of a flier being circulated.

The flier states her disappearance is a possible abduction and her last known cell phone ping was in the vicinity of the University of Central Oklahoma, where a search failed to produce any leads. Anne is also known as “Annie Jo” or “Anne Josette.” She was wearing a blue one-piece short set, the flier states.

As of Monday afternoon, the page was “liked” by 948 people and had 4,981 “shares.”

The flier is being circulated via

Anyone who knows Anne Josette Hill’s whereabouts should call the Oklahoma City Police Department’s Missing Person’s Unit at 405-297-1129. If after business hours call 911. | 341-2121, ext. 108

  • Logan County pays off jail tax early, seeks new one

    Logan County is paying off a sales tax ahead of schedule and needs a new one to be able to afford funding jail operation and maintenance, officials said.
    Citizens vote on the county sales tax which is split for redistribution by state law. The tax is collected by the Oklahoma Tax Commission and redistributed back to the county as specified by voters.
    In 2005, citizens passed a 10-year sales tax, scheduled to end next month, to fund the building, operation and maintenance of the county jail, which operates on a $1.3 million budget. Jail capacity is 188 without anyone in a holding cell or a temporary bunk. Thursday it was holding 130 inmates, said Logan County Chief Deputy Richard Stephens.

    A rusting, silver-colored water tower tells visitors to this rural town between Muskogee and Tulsa that they’ve come to the “Peach Capitol of Oklahoma.”
    Residents of Stratford, the state’s other self-proclaimed peach capital, might beg to differ. Even so, Porter is known for its peaches, and every year thousands of people flood this town of about 600 residents to taste and celebrate the local crop during the three-day Peach Festival.
    Like the aging water tower, Porter’s peach industry isn’t as vibrant as it once was.
