Details of Disappearance

Teel was last seen at City Park Apartments in Jay, Oklahoma at 11:00 p.m. on January 2, 2017. Two weeks earlier he had gotten out of prison after serving a six-year sentence, and he was staying with an aunt.

A witness reported seeing a man who looked like Teel getting into a dark-colored four-door car in the parking lot of his aunt's apartment complex. He left without his coat, hat, phone or identification, never returned and has never been heard from again.

Foul play is suspected in Teel's case. His family does not believe he would have abandoned his young daughter, and police have received tips indicating he is deceased. His case remains unsolved.
