Woman missing from Barnsdall since Sunday night


A mentally disabled woman who recently moved to Barnsdall from Avant vanished from her home on Walnut Street on Sunday night, prompting a search by her family.

Missing is Courtney Glasscock, 27, a woman whose sisters describe as childlike, friendly and hard of hearing.

She was last seen around 10:30 p.m. Sunday at the home she shares with her sister Virginia Glasscock.

She was last seen wearing a light blue T-shirt with a small American flag, Army-green shorts and bare feet.

Two other sisters have come in from Texas and near the Arkansas border to help post fliers, check hospitals and search for her.

“She will be friends with anybody,” Virginia Glasscock said. “if someone comes up to her and says, ‘Hi, Courtney, I’m your friend,’ she believes it. She’s mentally about 8 or 10.”

Courtney has never been missing in the past, and generally keeps to her home.

For her, Barnsdall was a big-city change from Avant, where the family lived on several acres in the countryside.

“She’s used to living in the country,” said family friend Angel Lopez.

Courtney is 5 foot 4 inches tall, weighs 130 pounds, has blue eyes and blonde hair. She speaks softly and often cups her right ear to hear what people are saying to her.

She is very talkative, her sisters said, has a vivid imagination and loves all animals. She is also fond of reading.

“She doesn’t go to church but she loves to read the Bible and to talk to people about the Bible,” Virginia Glasscock said.

Barnsdall Police have entered her into the National Crime Information Center as a missing person.

City police had not by Tuesday afternoon called the Osage County Sheriff’s Office in to assist in finding Courtney Glasscock.

The Bigheart Times alerted the county to the matter and the sheriff quickly put out a nationwide alert to find her Tuesday night and started an investigation to find her.

If you have seen or know the whereabouts of Courtney Glasscock, please call the Osage County Sheriff’s Office at 918-287-3131 or any local law enforcement agency. Concerned citizens and residents are welcome to share and print the flyer attached below to help with the search.
